This series is as good as Joe Sacco’s Palestine.
Whoa that’s heavy. But yes, a worthy comparison.
Fan of Palestine, but gotta say, I’m enjoy this!! … My only “wish” were that if it were eventually graphic novel-ified, that the pace could be slowed down a bit.. of course, it’s difficult to write about non-fictional characters in that way I suppose.
Thank you Boing boing for turning me onto this musical history comic and thank you Ed Piskor for creating such an awesome historical narrative. As a fan of music history, I constantly am cross referencing all of the music and people that are explained in this comic. This is just so many levels of awesome. Thank You.
i’ve been reading these for awhile, but i missed the beginning and the explanation. i’m blown away by the look and style — it’s so authentic. this is all just so very very well done.
Yes! I think it’s almost time for Marshall Mathers!
almost time? In 1979, Em is a seven-year-old.

I just want to know when it will be available in a book form.
I have commitment issues, but, I’ll probably decide on a publisher pretty soon. It’s going to take a while for the book to come out though. There are 50 pages finished so far, and we’re just barely hitting 1980.
I love this comic but I would guess you really don’t like Russel Simmons the way you draw him and have him speak.
No prob at all with Russell Rush…

Why is Russell Simmons made to be such an egregiously lisping, crazy-eyed Satanic clown? Is he really that evil? Kurtis Blow seems to be just as wall-eyed, ill-spoken and ripe for ridicule in interviews I’ve seen with him. I have no interest in Simmons as a person at all, and have a low opinion of his talents, but I still think this must be an unfair portrait of him.
