To celebrate the resounding critical and commercial success of the first two volumes of Ed Piskor's unprecedented history of Hip Hop, we are offering the two books in a mind-blowingly colorful slipcase, drawn and designed by the artist. As if that's not enough, in addition to the two books and the slipcase itself, Piskor has drawn a 24-page comic book -- Hip Hop Family Tree #300 -- specifically for this boxed set that elegantly reflects the confluence of hip hop and comics, which was never more apparent in the early 1990s than with the famous Spike Lee-directed Levi Jeans commercial starring Rob Liefeld, who went on to create Youngblood and co-found Image Comics, not to mention ending up on the radar of gangster rapper Eazy E. Piskor tells this story as a perfect parody/pastiche/homage to '90s Image comics.

About Ed Piskor

Ed Piskor wurde 1982 geboren und studierte an der Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. Seit 2005 ist er als professioneller Zeichner tätig. Bekannt wurde Piskor durch seine Zusammenarbeit mit Szenarist Harvey Pekar, einem Pionier des US-Underground-Comix. Er zeichnete für Pekars autobiographische Serie American Splendor und schuf mit ihm die beiden Graphic Novels Macedonia und The Beats. Wizzywig ist sein erstes großes Solo-Projekt. Piskors Stil ist beeinflusst von der Underground Comicszene der 1960er und 1970er Jahre. Als eines seiner wichtigsten Vorbilder nennt er Robert Crumb.
