Review

Graph, graph and away!

LOOK! Up on the shelf! It’s a book! It’s a comic! No! It’s Super Graphic, the only book you’ll ever need for all your comic-related infographic needs!

Ever wondered who has more trick arrows, Green Arrow of Hawkeye? Or how many times the letter “V” appears throughout V For Vendetta? What about which spy, Black Spy or White Spy, has the longest winning streak in Spy Vs. Spy? Or what Batman has had on his utility belt throughout the years?

Tim Leong’s Super Graphic has all the answers for these questions, and more. From Marvel to DC, Calvin And Hobbes to Death Note, this book is a tongue-in-cheek, frequently hilarious depiction of the comics world in a nutshell, all brilliantly explained in colourful, easy to understand bubble charts, pie charts, bar charts, Venn Diagrams, maps, line graphs, and ... well, you get the picture.

But enough speech bubbles. The best way to convince you that this is THE most useful, informative and entertaining book about comics ever created (one that does not require too much reading), is to SHOW you what we’re talking about!

Super Graphic is available at Kinokuniya, Suria KLCC.
