Explorations in thought and the realm of the written word.
Raw, honest, and completely relatable - this is definitely one of my favourite books I've read this year!
You can visit Wil's bandcamp page and purchase a copy of him narrating this book, with extra asides and anecdotes not included in the written version.
When I finally get a flat with a coffee table, this is going on it!
"Why would you not want to build infographics about comic books?!" Tim Leong (Author and Illustrator) in an interview with LifeHacker in July 2013.
I checked this book out from the library, thinking that I'd enjoy the graphics but likely have to diligently trudge through a mass of script as well. I was totally off the mark! Not only did I not have to trudge through any of the contents, but I occasionally had to pull deals with myself to put the book down after the next picture and go to sleep!
Super Graphic is OH. SO. PRETTY. as well as informative, quirky, and unique - ironically the same things I look for in my comic books, graphic novels, and..well..pretty much everything. At only 196 pages and sizing in at 9.4 x 7.4 x 0.6 inches (23.88 x 18.8 x 1.5 centimeters), this paper back might seem a little on the dinky side for a standard coffee table book (which usually come hardbound, three times as thick, and weighing in at a couple of pounds minimum). Don't let that fool you - this book was made to be looked at. Besides, since when did underestimating a superhero by it's size and appearance ever work?
This book was OK....but I don't think I'll be reading the next one to follow. I've given it a 3/5 because it was simply OK. It wasn't horrendous, but I did not enjoy reading it as much as the first instalment.
