Sequential Underground #34 – Looking for the Perfect Comics

Sequential Underground

Pittsburgh cartoonist Ed Piskor joins Nick Marino and Shawn Atkins to discuss hip hop history, the formulation of taste, hand lettering, comics reprints, and tons more.

Ed’s recently embarked on an ambitious new project — chronicling the genesis of rap music through a comprehensive Hip Hop Family Tree series for his Brain Rot webcomic on BoingBoing.net.

But this isn’t Ed’s introduction to the history of rap music. He’s a passionate hip hop head with his own specific views on the development (and death) of the genre.

And we don’t just talk about hip hop in this episode. We also dig into our mutual love of comics, covering topics such as: reading old original issues vs. recolored reprints, “Where’s Waldo?” X-Men, The Kubert School, assembly line comics production, the proportion wheel, and emotional connection to source material.

    This was a pretty epic talk about hip hop. I’m glad I didn’t say much to muddle it up with incomplete thought waves. It was cool to hear Ed talk about his passion of hip hop/rap and it’s history of the music. I can’t wait to see more hip hop comics.

    @Shawn: What about this: http://league.jmkprime.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/jla-wutang-clan_crop.jpg Does that count as more hip hop comics???
