The Halloween Report [infographic]

Overall, I like this one but The Halloween Report is a mixed bag.  Heavy on the illustration, The Halloween Report includes elements like the historical timeline, some pumpkin facts and an analysis of candy corn.  

I really like the 21 moons with jack-o-lantern faces, and the pumkpin comparison to the BMW Mini makes a good reference.  I like the idea of the candy corn ingredients, but the slices don’t accurately represent the proportions.

I don’t understand the 7x8 visual grid of pumpkins.  How does that mean 1.1 billion pounds?  The comparison to space shuttles is tough too, because most people don’t have a good feel for how much a space shuttle weighs.  I would have continued the BMW Mini comparison and shown how many Minis it takes to weigh 1.1 billion pounds.
