Biographical note:

Tim Leong founded and edited the Eisner Award–nominated magazine, Comic Foundry and has served as the Design Director at Complex Magazine and Director of Digital Design at WIRED Magazine. He organizes his graphic novels by color and lives in San Francisco, California.

Main description:

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.

Review quote:

" 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; [author Tim] 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."
- Starburst Magazine

Review quote:

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

Review quote:

"...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

Review quote:

"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.

Review quote:

"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."
-GeekDad

Review quote:

"I could leaf through this book for hours. It's fun, it's smart, it's informative, and I'm saying that as a student of comic art, not as a fan geek. (Even though the author is horribly, tragically, staggeringly wrong in his analysis of which Flash is the best.)"
-Mark Waid, writer of The Flash,Kingdom Come,and former editor-in-chief of BOOM! Studios.

Review quote:

"In his new book, Super Graphic: A Visual Guide to the Comic Book Universe, the award-winning art director and designer, who founded and edited the Eisner Award-nominated magazine Comic Foundry...took his lifelong love of comic bo"Tim Leong's smart and charming new book offers a 'visual guide to the comic book universe' through clever charts and graphs."
