‘X-Cessive Force’ Print Breaks Down All The Powers Of Marvel’s Most Violent Mutants

XCessiveHeader

I grew up in the '90s, so no matter what I do with the rest of my life, I will always have a certain amount of nostalgic affection for X-Force. The hyperviolent, gun-toting mutant strike force that was originally created by Rob Liefeld back in 1991 has gone through a lot of different lineups and changes over the years, but one thing they've always had in common is that they specialize in massive amounts of destruction.
But just how is that destruction carried out? Graphic designer Rogan Josh has the answer in a new poster that he made where the various rosters are broken down to show just what they can accomplish, whether it's through claws, blades, claw-blades, or just good old fashioned guns.

Pop Chart Lab Breaks Down ‘The Myriad Monikers Of Gotham’s Villains’ [Infographic]

Chart01

Like virtually everyone else on the Internet, I enjoy a good chart breaking down my favorite pieces of pop culture into their components, cataloguing and organizing them for easy -- or at least well-designed -- reference. As a result, I tend to be a pretty big fan of the folks over at Pop Chart Lab, who have devoted their considerable graphic skills to doing exactly that. The only problem I've had with them is that their first attempt at organizing the names of Gotham City's population of villains and assorted weirdos had some glaring omissions.

Fortunately for me and that blank spot on my wall, they've corrected that in a second version, and it is amazing. Check it out to see where the names of Arkham and Blackgate's maladjusted miscreants fall, from the Joker (categorized under "Inanimate Objects" and specifically under "Playing cards") to the extremely obscure Gloves (under "Gloves").

Salvador Anguiano Brings You The Many Heads Of The Batman [Infographic]

Batman 75th Anniversary Art by Salvador Anguiano

This year's 75th Anniversary of Batman celebrations have resulted in some pretty great pieces of art from folks celebrating the Dark Knight's birthday. When artist Salvador Anguiano set out to draw a poster commemorating the event, he was faced with an interesting problem. With so many distinct eras of Batman, there was just too much to choose from. So he didn't.

Instead of picking one distinct Batman to highlight, Anguiano's poster features 75 different versions of Batman (or at least their heads) pulled from all across pop culture.

Mashable’s Spider-Man Infographic Attempts To List Every Spider-Man Costume Ever, But Um, Actually…

Spider-Man infographic, via Mashable

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in theaters now and an X-Men movie just around the corner, we are once again in the midst of the summer superhero movies, and that can mean only one thing: It's Infographic Season! Yes, we are once again at the mercy of those easily digestible fact sheets with slightly dubious information, designed to go viral just like some horrifying apocalyptic disease created in a lab by a mad scientist.

Oh c'mon, I'm kidding. But really, when you put something up and claim that it's "Every Costume Spider-Man Has Ever Worn," like Mashable did this week, you're just asking for some dork to come along and correct you. And today, my friends, I am that dork.

supergraphictop

Comics are a medium that combine words and pictures. Tim Leong, Author/editor/designer of the new book Super Graphic, out today, is taking the medium of books about comics in a whole new direction by presenting information in not necessarily a similar way, but one that preserves the spirit of combining words and pictures in such a way that tells a story. ComicsAlliance sat down with him for a while to talk about fitting the details into colorful charts, his love of infographics, and how a chart can have a tone.
