The Supernatural Sprawl of True Blood

the supernatural sprawl of true blood infographic

The HBO phenomenon that captured our attention it’s first season has become hard to follow. The Supernatural Sprawl of True Blood infographic created by Jess Bachman from visual.ly breaks down the types of characters that have appeared so far in each season and each episode.

TrueBlood started as a show about the relationship between humans and vampires. But over the course of five seasons, the list of supernatural creatures has been steadily expanding. Love it or hate it, there are a lot of supes — and keeping track of them all is becoming increasingly complex. This infographic should help you sort it all out.

The design does a good job of using unique, recognizable illustrations for each type of creature, and then grouping them together for each episode.  It’s also very obvious that the episodes have consistently gotten more complicated as the show progressed.

Credit for the illustrations goes to Ilias Sounas, and thanks to Jess for sending in the link!

My biggest issue with this comes from having read it via RSS on your website where the word "Supernatural" is the same size as "True Blood" in the headline. Because of that I saw "Supernatural" as being the show, and the rest of the picture was a count of BLOOD.

It's just a lesson to think about when summarizing and reproducing larger works, that a cold reader may jump in the wrong initial direction.

I've watched both shows, and Supernatural having just restarted this week, it was the quicker recall for me.
