Even if you are not a fan of hip hop or rap per se, one cannot deny its pervasive influence on the world at large. If nothing else, this first volume, covering the years 1975 through 1981, demonstrates the nonstop merging of style and culture that is part and particle of the American experience. --Gregg Reese"
Imagining the early days of the hip-hop movement with writing and art that intentionally evoke the bombast and energy of an early '80s Marvel comic, Piskor has introduced scores of music fans to comics by serializing the series for free on Boing Boing, but these stories look even better in Fantagraphics' printed collections. "
Action-packed, fun and funny. "
...[A]mazing... if I was going to itemize everything that was good and successful about it, I wouldn't even know where to begin. It's fantastic in so many different ways. I was predisposed to like it and it has exceeded my expectations. ...I'm starting to have this growing conviction that Ed Piskor just may be the greatest thing to hit comics since Robert Crumb. --Kim Deitch"
In Piskor's comics, the ... lyrics breakdance off the page... the print version is beautiful, with faux-yellowed pages, a muted color palette and an oversized 'treasury' format recalling its subject's era. Piskor's art falls somewhere between R. Crumb's blues portraits and Joe Sacco's journalism comics. "
Piskor has an aficionado's eye for details and connections. "
They say the story of Jesus is the greatest ever told, but JC didn t steal a DJ mixer during the New York Blackout of '77 or bomb a subway car with Fab 5 Freddy. With his Hip Hop Family Tree, comics artist Ed Piskor delves into the history of hip-hop and gets straight-up biblical, penning a 'who-begat-whom' with a b-boy twist. "
This is the comic I've been waiting 40 years to read. --Harry Allen"
It's a great story and Piskor tells it immaculately well. --Bill Adler"
Piskor is obviously a huge rap fan ... He presents the facts in a nostalgic, faded-ink and rubbery realism of '70s Marvel Comics style, turning rap's early innovators into larger-than-life heroes of history. "
This is the comic of all time. --Biz Markie"
The amount of research and history Piskor packs into this book is mind boggling. "
These stories are carefully researched and detailed along with great comic book style art... "
An avid lover of hip-hop music and superhero comic books from a young age, Ed Piskor has combined his two passions to create a remarkable reading experience ... Hip Hop Family Tree imagines real-world events through the filter of 1980s Marvel Comics, bringing hip-hop visionaries to the page in a style that exaggerates their energy and style to capture the intensity of the music without having the beats. "
Being in an Ed Piskor comic is cool enough to freeze hot water. --Fab Five Freddy"
A young Pittsburgh bard travels back to the New York birth of rap with DJ Kool Herc and rattles off encyclopedic knowledge through dynamic, interwoven narratives of the '70s and early '80s. The feat is backed by era-appropriate art on pages yellowed with nostalgia. Dope, yo. "
Ed Piskor is the sh#t!! --De La Soul"
Piskor's strip is funny and warm, tossing in a few keen nods to two cultures that have shaped him. "
These comics [are] almost too good to be true... If you're a lover of hip hop and / or graphic novels, these are a must! "
In Ed Piskor's Hip Hop Family Tree, readers get to experience the origins of rap music in a way like never before; they get to live it. They get to walk the streets of New York City, where in rented performance rooms with cobbled-together gear pioneers like DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, and Grandmaster Flash birthed a new art form. "
...Piskor... lovingly draws the origin stories of hip-hop's legendary superheroes. Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash and the Russell Simmons/Rick Rubin crossover team-up are rendered like something between Watchmen and Wild Style. --Christopher R. Weingarten"
[W]hen I discovered Ed Piskor's Hip Hop Family Tree I was in heaven. These bite-sized biographies of hip hop s biggest names and slice-of-life reflections on its defining moments are routinely featured at Boing Boing, but to really experience these beautifully stylized vignettes in all their throwback glory you really need to check out the collected editions. --Z."
When cartoonist Ed Piskor decided to unspool the labyrinth history of one of America s greatest artistic accomplishments, he spared no effort to immerse his readers in the era of jump suits and scarred vinyl. Everything in Hip Hop Family Tree screams nostalgia: the Ben-Day dots, the sepia discoloration even the print feels course and pulpy, like a priceless cultural artifact unearthed in a garage sale or your dad s basement. Flipping through the oversized pages, you can almost hear the slap bass, horn swells, and ricocheting rhymes of hip-hop s inaugural years. --Sean Edgar"
Hip Hop Family Tree [is] an exhaustive, lovingly-rendered portrayal of the movement's explosive early moments. --Nathan Reese"
These are dookie-gold-chain d-o-p-e. --Darcy MacDonald"
An astonishing feat of cultural archaeology, in both ambition and execution. The project somehow doesn t seem quite real: a comic-book history of hip-hop going back to the very beginning the late 70s where lore is thick and documentation scarce. To tell this story in any language would be a challenge; to tell it in the language of comics feels like a magical summoning.--Lary Wallace"
One of the defining histories of hip hop Ed created a portal into the beginning of hip hop, and just saying that a picture is worth a thousand words is a poor way of explaining why its impact is greater than that of a detailed book.--Daniel Genis"
Captures the personalities, imagery and milestones with a hilarity and efficiency that no other medium could.
Ed Piskor is the sh#t!!
Extraordinary effort. Even if you are not a hip-hop fan, you need to read this.--Jatin Varma
These are dookie-gold-chain d-o-p-e.--Darcy MacDonald
A superhero-riffing, world-building, toe-tapping, beat-hitting story of a whole lot of people, some brilliant, some lucky, some crazy, and some all of the above.--Alex di Campi
[A] rapid-fire telling of the early days of rap and hip hop culture There s a lot to learn even if you think you ve heard it all.--Gene Ambaum"
He s not just doin a comic book, he s doin' a piece of history.--Darryl DMC McDaniels"
