TRUTH, JUSTICE AND THE CANADIAN WAY: ROYAL CANADIAN MINT ISSUES FOUR NEW SUPERMAN COINS
Last year, the Royal Canadian Mint issued seven collector’s coins to celebrate Superman‘s 75th anniversary. Looks like it’s a hard habit to break, because at this year’s Fan Expo in Toronto, the mint announced it was issuing four more coins with images from covers dating back to Superman’s debut in 1938.
Though he’s widely considered a U.S. hero, Superman has Canadian roots. Joe Shuster, who co-created Superman with Jerry Siegel, was born in Toronto.

Jim Lee, one of the greatest artists to ever grace the pages of Marvel Comics, graduated Princeton University in 1986 with a degree in psychology. His plan was to try his hand at comics for a year before moving onto medical school - a plan cut short by the rejection letter as seen above…
The criticism seems full of throwaway excuses far removed from the work Lee is known and loved for, and I’m willing to bet that Eliot R. Brown was full of shit, because as of 1987 he became an instant classic with Punisher War Journal and Uncanny X-Men.
He is one of those artists who, almost three decades later, fans will still hail him as the best artist their favourite character ever had. Thanks, Jim Lee, you rock and Eliot Brown is a skid stain for ever doubting you!
