    "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)

    "In Ed Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree, readers get to experience the origins of rap music in a way like never before; they get to live it. They get to walk the streets of New York City, where in rented performance rooms with cobbled-together gear pioneers like DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, and Grandmaster Flash birthed a new art form." – Comics Alliance

    "An avid lover of hip-hop music and superhero comic books from a young age, Ed Piskor has combined his two passions to create a remarkable reading experience…Hip Hop Family Tree imagines real-world events through the filter of 1980s Marvel Comics, bringing hip-hop visionaries to the page in a style that exaggerates their energy and style to capture the intensity of the music without having the beats." – AV Club

    "The amount of research and history Piskor packs into this book is mind boggling." – Huffington Post

    Bitches Rule cycle 3 opened Saturday night at & Pens Press in Culver City. I’m really happy with my wallpaper installation made from photocopies of queer zines from my vast collection. The reception was a blast. Thanks so much to & Pens for hosting us. This is their final exhibition in their current space - stay tuned for info about their plans for the future, this is definitely not the end of & Pens. Thanks to all the bitches who participated in this show and all the people who came out to support. Mad love to prvtdncr and Bodega Vendetta for helping me add that extra handmade element to the Bitches Rule cycle 3 zine by sewing a bunch of crazy shit to all 100 of the covers!
