Black Panther comics free on Comixology and Others


Comixology has a huge library of free Black Panther comics on their site. There is no announcement on the site about it. But if you go to Comixology or reportedly, the Marvel app and search for Black Panther, the single issues are free. The big collections are not but you get the same stories in singles anyway. So search series then pick some to read.
This includes the 70’s series and more recent issues. I reading some vintage series now. When I finish the story arc, I’ll jump to the current era.

UPDATE

Free digital single issues also on The Marvel App and Amazon. The note here is you can get them on Amazon and read them on Comixolgy but not vise versa. Still available as of noon on Labor Day.

Quarantine Build #7 Mandaloriran and The Child Brick Headz


I’m back to quarantine building. Here is build #7. The Child and Mandalorian 2 pack set #75317. It has 295 pieces and was released earlier this month. I preordered this set during the May the Fourth promotion and it arrived at the end of July.
The Child comes with a hover cradle. The Child is smaller than a standard Brick Headz since it is of a child. The brain is a pink 1×1 brick. For those unfamiliar with brickheadz, they have a brain, it’s a pink 2×2 brick. other than that the build was straight forward.

The child brick headz kit. The child is a young alien of the came species as Yoda.

The Madolarian builds just like most of the Brick Headz builds. Build was very easy. The set has come great color. It has some cool greebling and a long rifle.

I enjoyed this build. The Child is cute and the Mandolarian is cool. I am glad I snagged this set I missed getting the Yoda & Luke set.

Do you like Brick Headz?

What Brick Headz do you have? What character do you wish LEGO made? Have you made a custom Brick Headz?

Support Brick Journal


TwoMorrows publishes BrickJournal, a LEGO focused magazine. They also publish LEGO books and comic related magazines. They have been hit hard by the shutdown. Barnes & Noble stores and comics shops where they sell their products are all shut down. Like the much of the publishing industry, their distributors are shut down. See my previous post about Dynamite books Indiegogo.

They have had to destroy printed copies of their newest issue of BrickJournal. The issues were stuck in shipping, They were sitting in a warehouse and could not be delivered. The publisher would have to pay rent on the issues while the sat there or pay for special delivery. So to save money, those issues were destroyed.

New series Brick Sketches



LEGO has annoucned a new series LEGO Sketches, These were designed by LEGO artist Chris McVeigh. He’s been making these on his site for years. But now are an official set that you can get this summer.

These first sets are BB-8, First Order Stormtrooper, Batman and Joker. I’ll get BB-8 and Batman.

I like how how designed batman grin.

I’ve admired these since I saw the on Chris’ site. They remind me of the old Toys R US build of Captain America set my son made. I toyed around with building my own character portraits like this but never got far. I bought some plates for it and that;s about as far as I got. The Brick Sketches have a better look that this old kit. The blocky look is replaced by a more in depth look. I can’t wait for these.
