Comics + Infographics + Wit = Excelsior Bam Pow Crash!

The comic book universe is adventurous, mystifying, and filled with heroes, villains, and cosplaying Comic-Con attendees. This book by one of Wired magazine's art directors traverses the graphic world through a collection of pie charts, bar graphs, timelines, scatter plots, and more. Super Graphic offers readers a unique look at the intricate and sometimes contradictory storylines that weave their way through comic books, and shares advice for navigating the pages of some of the most popular, longest-running, and best-loved comics and graphic novels out there. From a colorful breakdown of the DC Comics reader demographic to a witty Venn diagram of superhero comic tropes and a Chris Ware sadness scale, this book charts the most arbitrary and monumental characters, moments, and equipment of the wide world of comics.


"... takes the cape-wearing obsession of millions and makes it handsome like never before."

"Super Graphic might be my favorite book ever. I am a complete statistics nerd. I am also a comic book/sci-fi nerd. Never before have I seen anything that combines these two separate worlds so brilliantly. I wouldn't describe the act of ingesting this book as 'reading' per se, more of an effortless flow of information into the readers mind."
-Neill Blomkamp, Oscar-nominated writer and director of District 9 and Elysium.

"...wonderful! If you even have a passing interest in the super hero world, but specifically if you have an interest in excellent, witty, incredibly attractive infographics- in data being conveyed in a really engaging, really striking way this is such a smart book, such a fun book...Get this book because turning the pages, and seeing something new and an incredibly different take on this approach.every single page is just an un-alloyed delight. It is great! I can't recommend it highly enough. This book made me very, very happy."
-Glen Weldon, NPR

"Super Graphicis an absolute joy and a feast for the eyes. It's stuffed with enough information to keep you occupied for hours and fun enough to want to revisit again and again. If you're a comics fan or simply love data visualizations, you definitely need to check it out."
