    1. Morgan Spurlock is a American documentary filmmaker best known for his documentary Super Size Me, in which he only ate McDonalds food for a month.He was married to vegan chef Alex Jamieson, who wrote an diet book inspired by the Detox diet he had to take after the McDonalds experiment The couple divorced in 2011.

    2. A "behind the arches" look at disturbing stories connected to this iconic symbol of 'Americanism'.

    3. Just some crazy stories about strange findings that are kinda disgusting but okay, but otherwise same details from the movie, Supersize Me but it's enjoyable.

    4. Though I like Morgan Spurlock's work alright, I mainly got this book for my wife, who's a big fan most especially of the Supersize Me film and book.This book is an odd conglomeration of strange fast-food related stories with interludes taken straight from Supersize Me, all in comic form by a handful of artists (the most notable of whom is Sock Monkey creator Tony Millionaire ). The stories are presented by 'MC Supersized,' the Ronald McDonald caricature featured on the cover, in the tone of the [...]

    5. Supersized is a graphic novel tie-in with the documentary film “Super Size Me.” It panders a bit to the teen set by filling many pages with behind-the-kitchen-door “gross out” stories about what happens when foreign objects and bodily fluids make their way into mass-produced meals. Ok, icky, fair enough, but those stories don’t really sway me. The two times I’ve found strange objects in my food (a small rock and part of a Brillo pad), it’s happened at small, privately owned eaterie [...]

    6. I knew this book was based on the documentary Super Size Me, which I haven't seen, but I didn't realize that this is non-fiction! Part of the book chronicles Morgan Spurlock's 30-day experiment of eating fast food -- and only fast food -- three times a day. The other part includes facts about fast food and horror stories from restaurants, as told to Spurlock by former employees and customers.These sound like urban legends, but the stories are presented as true. I don't eat at any of the fast fo [...]

    7. A lot of the art is ugly, most of the stories are lame, the narration is a bit confusing and jumbled, and I would never buy it as it's low on content and value. If you've seen the much, much better documentary "Super Size Me," you don't really need to see this -- unless you want to graphically refresh your mind regarding parts of the doc. Still, the overall message is a very positive, important and powerful one, and it's kind of neat seeing a cartoon Spurlock destroying himself on McDonalds and [...]

    8. Wow, Morgan Spurlock has really pimped out this ordeal! While that's not necessarily a bad thing, I didn't really care for this manifestation. Portions of the book recount Spurlock's 30 days of fast food feasting (complete with Morgan in comic form) and consultations with scientists that are featured in the movie. However, the main "narrator" is an obese Ronald McDonald who seeks to (patronizingly) gross out young readers with fast food horror stories. I think the scientific sections are convinc [...]

    9. Um livro curioso, muito indicado a adolescentes pelo seu conteúdo chocante. São pequenas histórias de terror muito real da indústria de fast food, conjugadas com detalhes da odisseia de Spurlock em documentar os resultados de uma dieta baseada apenas em hamburguers conjugado com uma análise dos métodos massificados de produção de comida à escala industrial. Supersised funciona como livro panfletário, destinado a chocar e com isso fazer reflectir sobre os hábitos alimentares. A tentati [...]

    10. All young adults should read this graphic novel. It makes a great companion piece to the movie. The art makes the Ronald McDonald-esque rather grotesque and repulsive looking, especially for a clown. But, the message in the book is just as powerful as the movie, with some different anecdotes about fast-food and how thoroughly disgustingly bad for your body it is (not to mention the gross out moments like animals parts in food or maggot-filled lettuce). The last story in the book is rather nasty, [...]

    11. Updated 1/19/15:At first I thought this was a book for kids to learn about fast food, and how unhealthy it is. (For some reason I think I saw it on something as a book for kids to read?) Well, this is NOT a book for kids, and neither is the documentary. I advise you be 14+ before watching the documentary, as there is foul language. I really enjoyed the documentary of Super Sized. I didn't care for it in comic-form, or the foul language in this book. The documentary was a lot more informative. I [...]

    12. This book grossed me out of everything that could potentially happen in the local McDonald's. What was sickening was how there were various animals found in the food people made and how there was cow feces in the burger that disabled a woman forever. I was so sickened, I never want to eat at a fast food joint ever again! The burger test was also terrible because it showed how many preservatives go into the foods that fast food joints make, and how much sodium is in the foods as well. I would rec [...]

    13. It was supposed to gross you out and make you think twice about eating fast foodmission accomplished. I'm not sure the world really needed this is graphic novel formatbut hey, if people want to read it I'm happy to provide it.

    14. Good presentation of the film interspersed with gross front-line anecdotes and facts about the fast food industry. Nothing especially surprising if you've worked in food service, but this would be a good book to give kids to explain why you shouldn't eat it.

    15. All fast food chains are franchise of hell. the short novel sumarise the movie Super size me and as a bonus adds some disgusting urban legends about fast food. Rats are included too. The sad thing is that this book has point and it is sort of you should read.

    16. Some decent disgusting fast food stories, but fuck is the tone of this thing overbearing. I get that it's aimed for a younger audience, but even at its short length it was difficult getting through this thing just because of how obnoxious the presentation was.

    17. If your child hasn't read this, get it for him quick! My 12 year old read this a while ago and hasn't wanted to stop for fast food since. We just picked it up for our high school library.

    18. This was pretty gross. It's kind of a re-cap of the documentary Supersize Me. Not terrible and will probably keep me away from fast food for a while.

    19. It was awful. Disgusting. Even though I knew most of the facts and evidence the graphic novel presented I was still disgusted. Will not eat fast food for a long time after this.

    20. GN companion to the documentary Super Size Me; a selection of creepy and gross tales about the fast food industry.
