Super Graphic: A Visual Guide to the Comic Book Universe
Super heroes never actually stay dead, unless you’re a character in Mark Millar’s Kick-Ass, so how long are most super heroes typically “dead” in the Marvel Universe? Ever wonder how many Green Lanterns there have been to protect universe Sector 2814? Does anyone really know if the zombies are more dangerous than the human survivors in The Walking Dead?
Well, if you have ever actually wondered any of these things, then check out Tim Leong’s new work of comic genius, Super Graphic: A Visual Guide to the Comic Book Universe. Leong has taken all of those annoying Venn Diagrams and bar charts from your past high school years and finally put them into a format you’ll love. Whether you want to know how many super heroes’ parents died tragically, how many heroes have capes, or even commonalities between heroes and villains in the different comic universes, then this book has all the stats you’ll need. So get ready to boost your knowledge for the upcoming Comic Con season and pick up a copy of Super Graphic this July. And remember, San Diego Comic Con is July 18-21; Baltimore Comic Con is September 7-8; and New York Comic Con is October 10-13 this year.
