"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
"His classic indie comic composition and narrative ease make the strip readable, informative (who knew Rammelzee went tagging with Basquiat?), and respectful to the art forms and artists it covers." -J.P. McNamara, Demencha
224-page full-color 13.25" x 9.5" hardcover • $49.99

"…features color versions of the first several years of Sunday for that all-time, pantheon-level comic strip. I want [it] and you should, too." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter
