(W) Ed Piskor (A/CA) Ed Piskor
Discover the history of hip hop in graphic novel form - this
omnibus collection of the New York Times best-selling
series includes over 140 pages of extras in a deluxe
hardcover for the first time!
Ed Piskor's Hip Hop Family Tree has been a global phenomenon and
perennial bestseller since the first (of four) volumes was published in
2013, spawning multiple printings, fourteen comic books, and the author's
wildly popular YouTube comics channel, Cartoonist Kayfabe (with fellow
cartoonist Jim Rugg). Yet the series has never been collected under one
cover. Until now.
This omnibus collection includes the original 360-page series with
over 140 pages of extra material: a cover gallery of every HHFT book and
comic book cover and back cover Piskor ever created, pages from the HHFT
comic book series that have never been collected, new annotations of the entire
series by Piskor, and much more.
Hip Hop Family Tree is the entertaining, encyclopedic history of the formative
years of the music genre that changed global culture. Piskor's cartooning crackles
like Kirby and takes you from the parks and rec rooms of the South Bronx to the
night clubs, recording studios, and radio stations where the scene started to boom,
capturing the flavor of late 1970s New York City in panels bursting with obsessively
authentic detail. With a vigorous and engaging Ken Burns-meets-Stan Lee approach,
the battles and rivalries, the technical innovations, the triumphs and failures are
all thoroughly researched and lovingly depicted. Like the acclaimed hip hop documentaries
Style Wars and Scratch, Hip Hop Family Tree is an essential cultural
chronicle and a must for hip hop fans, pop-culture addicts, and anyone who wants
to know how it went down back in the day.
