A bit of obscure canadian history

Apologies for the lack of updates, but now with school over and done with and I finally have time to tend to my poor neglected blog.
Here's a little 2 page informational comic about the Ripple Rock explosion. Ripple rock was a natural shipping hazard that sank over 120 ships before it was blown up in 1958. Apparently it was the world's biggest explosion before the invention of the nuclear bomb. Aaaaand.... it all took place near my hometown, so naturaly I grew up thinking it was a pretty big deal, but literally no one I've ever shown this to has ever heard of it. Oh well, let this be your education.
