From the Publisher"It's a very heart-felt love letter to comic books, the imaginary people that inhabit them and the actual people that imagine the imaginary people."
- The Awl
"Ingenious graphic breakdowns that explore every corner of the superhero universe."
- Geek Magazine
"In the taxonomy of nerdhood, comic geeks and math dorks are not mutually exclusive. To wit: The new, deftly illustrated Super Graphic will leave nerds of every stripe satisfied."
"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 books and his passion for design and mashed them up into a series of eye-pleasing infographics that make sense of the medium's poorly catalogued history... the book demands that every self-respecting comic book head get their hands on a copy."
"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.
"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."
"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."
