I admit it. I'm jaded.
There are very few things that come along that really excite me these days, however, this vampire chart from io9 is one of them.
The chart (which we could only include partially to the right because of its massive size and awesomeness) summarizes the strengths and weaknesses of 50 popular vampires throughout popular culture. Included in the list is everyone from Count Chocula to Blacula to the lead vamps on True Blood.
It lists such attributes as sun sensitivity, coffin user and blood sucker. In other words, if you're alone in a dark alley with the vampire Lestat, this handy cheat sheet could get you out relatively unscathed.
I can't implore you enough to check out the complete, large version on io9's website. Words simply don't do it justice.
And when you come back, tell us what you think.
