Fictional Character Interactions Over Time

Posted to Infographics  |  Nathan Yau

Popular nerd comic xckd takes a look at character interactions over time in Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, 12 Angry Men, and Primer. The horizontal axis is time and the vertical axis indicates which characters are together at any given time. The result is something that looks like famed Minard graphic. Well, sort of. And of course it’s all hand drawn, which adds to the nerd-ish charm.
