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.
