How Did You Know? - {day 2}

We're back with another 5-day trivia hunt!

To remind you of the rules: Every day this week, I'll be presenting a specific challenge. Your job: come up with the answers and hold onto them! Why? Because on Friday, you'll need them to solve a short puzzle. The first person to email in the correct answers and successfully show how you arrived at them (thus the title: How Did You Know?) wins a choice of any t-shirt and book from our store.

We're also adding some special prizes this time around for those who come really close, but don't get all the answers in time. And last month, we awarded some shirts and books to a couple contestants who impressed us with charts, diagrams, and other complex methods of recording and organizing the clues/answers. So we'll be on the lookout for the creative among you, as well. This is all to say: it pays to play whether you nab the grand prize or not.

As with previous How Did You Know? posts, comments have been turned off, but I definitely encourage you to work in teams. April's winner was the team of Bill Pearson and Adam Constable, who I know benefitted greatly from e-mailing each other throughout the week. So write your friends, send around each daily challenge, conspire, work together, whatever it takes to make sure you're armed with the right answers going into Friday's puzzle.

If you missed Day 1's challenge, it can be found right over here.

Today we're playing Name That Tune. Each of the following pages has a tune in need of a name. So go to it and remember to check the last page for a clue to tomorrow's puzzle.

The Origins of 36 Marvel Characters, Illustrated

No matter what their powers, every super hero has an origin story, from Spider-Man’s radioactive bite to Iron Man’s life-threatening chest shrapnel. In their latest poster, the designers at Pop Chart Lab have taken their infographic savvy to the Marvel Universe, charting the heroic origins of 36 different Marvel characters through miniature, minimalist comics.

Without using any words, they’ve managed to illustrate Bucky Barnes's plane explosion and subsequent transformation into the Winter Soldier, Jessica Jones’s car crash, the death of the Punisher’s family, and other classic stories from the major Marvel canon while paying tribute to the comic book form.

Explore the poster below, and see a zoomable version on Pop Chart Lab’s website.

Keep your eyes open for future Marvel-Pop Chart crossovers. The Marvel Origins: A Sequential Compendium poster is “the first release of what we hope to be a marvelous partnership,” as Pop Chart Lab’s Galvin Chow puts it. Prints are available for pre-order starting at $37 and are scheduled to start shipping on March 8.
