Aw yeah! We got our advance copies of Ed Piskor's Hip Hop Family Tree in the house and it looks dope! OK, I feel like a dope using old hip hop slang. But c'mon, check it! I should've put something next to it for scale because this book is BIG — 9" x 13" big.
Piskor chronicles the rise of hip hop with the obsessiveness of a crate-digger, and this first volume takes it back to the beginning on the streets of the Bronx. He's got cartooning chops to spare and he's packaged the book to resemble a late-1970s Marvel comic for extra fun.
We've got more previews in the works — if you're impatient you can just sample some strips in the Boing Boing archives. Get ready for one of our biggest books of the year, dropping in October and available for pre-order now!
