Fascinated by comics from an early age, Ed Piskor cut his cartooning teeth illustrating stories from Harvey Pekar's legendary "American Splendor" series. In the last decade, Piskor has collaborated on several graphic novels as well as his own series, "Wizzywig". "Hip Hop Family Tree" is a true labor of love for Piskor who both wrote and illustrated every volume. Piskor, heavily influenced by illustrator, R. Crumb, first originated "Hip Hop Family Tree" online where he could indulge his fascination with Hip-Hop History and all the men and women who have lived their lives, like Piskor, with their own visiionary art, lifestyle and devotion to craft. Astounding in detail, the ambition of "Hip Hop Family Tree" is to include every pioneer and contributor to Rap music including the stories of DJ Kool Herc and Grandmaster Flash, to Sylvia Robinson and the Sugarhill Gang, and from Afrika Bambaataa and Grandmaster Caz to Dr. Dre. But, just who is the real Roxanne? Find out within these pages where Piskor designs this series with the Ben-Day Dots that shout-out to earlier eras of comic book superheroes. Because, the origin story of these superheroes begins in the Bronx. A mixed set of early editions with the exception of volume 4, which is in First Edition. This set also includes the "Hip Hop Family Tree Hip Hop/Comics Connection Pt. 2" in Second Printing.
