I'm looking forward to it whenever it's ready.

As an aside, one advantage to Tufte-style information-dense charts is that they can be interesting enough to engage readers with more of the details of the content, and not just say "yeah, OK" to your main point. For instance, the first graph in your post rewards additional attention. When readers engage with the details, they may learn more valuable things from the data than the ones you'd had in mind.
