Editorial Reviews

Review

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

"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."
-GeekDad

One of the "Great Illustrated Books of 2013"
-Chicago Tribune

Holiday Gift Guide Pick. "Whether he's a Superman or Batman fan, he's sure to get lost in this comprehensive collection of comic book info. This book has every factoid he could ever want."
-Glamour

"strikes exactly the right balance between meticulous representation and witty self-awareness which makes Super Graphic my book of 2013 (so far)."
