Chapel Hill Comics is proud to announce that as part of our 10th/35th Anniversary Festivities, we will host Ed Piskor on Saturday, November 16, from 6pm until 9pm! Ed will sign his newest book, Hip Hop Family Tree volume one!


Ed’s not messing around with throwaway stuff here; he’s putting together a comprehensive history of hip hop in comic form. This first volume, which takes us through 1981, features not just the hip hop artists like Grandmaster Flash, The Sugar Hill Gang, and Kurtis Blow, but the people behind the scenes of hip hop, like Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin, and the other people they intersected with, like Debbie Harry, Keith Haring, and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Not only that, but he’s drawing and coloring the book in a style contemporary to the events within. It looks just like a Marvel Comics treasury from the seventies, down to the size. It’s gonna be big! We will also have copies of Ed’s Hacker comic masterwork Wizzywig! Please check out some of the art and videos below, and then mark your calendar: November 16 is the date, and Chapel Hill Comics is the place.

Chapel Hill Comics is proud to announce the next meeting of our book club!

We’ll be meeting at on Sunday, March 24 at 2pm. Alicia will lead a discussion of Maggie the Mechanic, the first Love & Rockets volume by Jaime Hernandez, which is a staff favorite!

If you don’t have a copy, we are scheduled to receive a big shipment today (Friday, March 15), so we’ll have them available!

If you’re not aware of Maggie, or of Love and Rockets, here’s information  about Maggie the Mechanic from the publisher, Fantagraphics:

The 25th anniversary Love and Rockets celebration continues with this, the first of three volumes collecting the adventures of the spunky Maggie, her annoying best friend and sometimes lover Hopey, and their circle of friends, including their bombshell friend Penny Century, Maggie’s weirdo mentor Izzy — as well as the wrestler Rena Titañon and Maggie’s handsome love interest, Rand Race… “Maggie the Mechanic” collects the earliest, punkiest, most heavily sci-fi stories of Maggie and her circle of friends, and you can see the artist (who drew like an angel from the very first panel) refine his approach: Despite these strong shifts in tone, the stunning art and razor sharp characterizations keep this collection consistent, and enthralling throughout.

Please come out and talk about a comics masterwork by a great cartoonist!
