Hip Hop Family Tree

Hip Hop Family Tree by Ed Piskor

One of The Washington Post's Top 10 Graphic Novels of 2013

"Being in an Ed Piskor comic is cool enough to freeze hot water." – Fab Five Freddy

"This is the comic of all time." – Biz Markie

"It's a great story and Piskor tells it immaculately well." – Bill Adler (co-author, Def Jam: The First 25 Years of the Last Great Record Label)

"This is the comic I've been waiting 40 years to read." – Harry Allen (Public Enemy Media Assassin)

"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." – Jonathan Zwickel, MTV.com
