Iconic comic book covers get Lego-ized

This is seriously amazing! A comic book enthusiast with a penchant for Lego has re-created some of the most iconic covers from the history of DC and Marvel Comics using plastic bricks and minifigs. 

   "They simply started out as a way to test my ability lighting different backdrop colors without having to go full-scale," Imgur user Corsairsteel (aka David Whalen) said. "Then they turned into a full-blown art project that mixes the deep nostalgia for vintage comic books with the energy of a Lego playset."

   The pieces range from DC classics like Action Comics No. 1 and Detective Comics No. 27 to Marvel greats such as Incredible Hulk #181 and X-Men #101. Action Comics No. 1 features the first appearance of Superman. For this reason it is widely considered both the dawn of the superhero genre and the most valuable comic book of all time.

   Take a look through some of Corsairsteel's impressive feats of construction below:
