They certainly do in this book.
Bought for my comic/superhero mad son (I have a collection of superhero comics from the 70's/80's myself) Super Graphic is a brilliantly 'visual' book full of masses of off the cuff and geek worthy information about DC, Marvel and Superheroes.
This is all presented in an infographic way such as 'Information is Beautiful' if you're familiar with those books/website. Here you are provided with huge volumes of data that you can consume quickly and clearly.
It's packed to the rafters with bar charts, venn diagrams, pie charts, hierarchies, tree maps, standard maps, time series data and many other infographic styles. A very small taste of what you can find in this -
- Walking Dead kill counter (just who has topped the most zombies?)
- The four faces of The Flash
- The pizzas of The Mutant Ninja Turtles
- The politics of Good v Evil
- Superhero kill counter (Just who has killed the most baddies?)
At 196 pages the quality of this book is excellent and it looks great too!
If you have any geeks leaning towards superheroes/data/graphs in your house I can thoroughly recommend this book!
