I love infographics. Part of the reason that I adore The Oatmeal’s comic style is that much of it is in infographic form.

The designer is Stephen Taubman, who is a self-declared Aliens fanboy. Not only is how bloodshed plays out accurately depicted, he even includes handy tips for humans in case you come into contact with an Alien or Predator. ;)

The artist, Alberto Antoniazzi, is a graphic artist specializing in logos, t-shirt designs and other illustrations. Click Below for the Full Resolution:
Check out a little nod to all the Saved by the Bell fans out there. Do you recall Jessie Spano’s terrifying plummet into the harsh, painful world of caffeine addiction? ;) Nathaniel James does. This hilarious infographic details the caffeine intake of Ms. Spano as the episode progresses.

The designer, again Stephen Taubman, detailed exactly how a massive 240 foot shark would be able to get enough speed up to launch itself in the air and destroy an entire passenger jet. Wow…
