Comic book heroes get the info-porn treatment from designer Tim Leong

 As an art and design director for glossy titles like Complex and Wired, Tim Leong had to craft magazine covers that caught people’s eye while simultaneously conveying a wealth of information. For inspiration, he often drew on comic books, whose bold colors and story panels had captivated him since childhood. In 2005 he started the website Comic Foundry as a resource for comic-industry lovers, eventually spinning it up into its own quarterly magazine. For his first book, Super Graphic, due out this August from Chronicle Books, Leong has combined the two forms again, crafting a joyous smorgasbord of comic book data that mashes up super hero stats with graphic design chic.
