Ed Piskor wins Eisner Award


Congrats, Ed!

Such is the attention to authenticity Piskor pours into his richly detailed and thoroughly researched series–he only includes anecdotes if he can find "corroborating evidence," he stresses. This diligence earned the Pittsburgh native an Eisner Award for "Best Reality-Based Work" at Comic-con on Friday, for his work on Hip Hop Family Tree, vol. 2.

Catch up on Hip Hop Family Tree right here at Boing Boing, and buy the hard copies.
