Over the years there have been many, many comic books and graphic novels, and over the years they have racked up quite the numbers when it comes to damage, death and different versions of themselves.
So how are we mere mortals meant to keep up?
Have no fear! Tim Leongs’ book is here!
Tim Leong, former Director of Digital Design and WIRED magazine, Founder of Comic Foundry and Former Design Director of Complex Magazine, is releasing a new book entitled Super Graphic: A Visual Guide to the Comic Book Universe. Out August 1st, the book combines data from all comic books into one neat little complilation of pie charts, bar charts and other infographic forms.
This may seem strange, but it really is a breakthrough for all comics and graphic novels, as the data for this medium is so huge; Leong is really doing inspirational work by making it more academic.
Leong points out how intricate comic storylines can be (and somewhat contradictory), shares advice on some of the longest running, best loved comics, and gives a brilliant breakdown of DC Comics demographic.
