Super Graphic

A Visual Guide to the Comic Book Universe


The comic book universe is adventurous, mystifying and filled with heroes, villains and ComicCon 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 colourful 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.
