Nominated for FOUR Glyph Comics Awards! Named one of USA TODAY's top graphic novels to watch at San Diego Comic-Con! "BB Wolf strikes a relentless tempo that grabs you by the ears and refuses to let go. I never put this one down for an instant. Great stuff."-- Greg Ruth, artist of Freaks of the Heartlands, Conan: Born on the Battlefield, and Our Enduring Spirit "BB Wolf and the 3 LPs is one of the best graphic novels of the year and a must read for any comics fan!"-- Alex Dueben, Comic Book Resources "If Arnold's monochromatic through-line were a beverage to be savored (which it is), it would taste like a strong, bittersweet Southern tea. ...Koslowski's beastly linework proves his past Eisner Award nominations were justly deserved. [BB Wolf] yanks at your heart strings so hard it's bound to snap a few."-- Kyle Lemmon, Under the Radar –Books like this are the reason I got back into the comics scene... 5 Stars!” --Alex Haas, the Independent Comics Review A farmer and family man by day, blues musician by night, and a drinker of fine spirits at any hour, BB's life seemed simple. But this fragile peace comes crashing down when the LPs decide to take his land by any means possible. When all is lost, BB lashes out, setting into motion acts of revenge only a Big Bad Wolf could unleash. Rich Koslowski (award-winning creator of Three Fingers and The King) brings to life this haunting debut from writer J.D. Arnold. Set in the Mississippi Delta of the 1920s, BB Wolf & the 3 LPs is a classic story of racism, murder, revenge, and music... all filtered through the clever re-telling of a timeless fairytale.

The lore of the early days of hip hop has become the stuff of myth, so what better way to document this fascinating, epic true story than in another great American mythological medium -- the comic book? From exciting young talent and self-proclaimed hip hop nerd Ed Piskor, acclaimed for his hacker graphic novel Wizzywig, comes this explosively entertaining, encyclopedic history of the formative years of the music genre that changed global culture. Originally serialized on the hugely popular website Boing Boing, The Hip Hop Family Tree is now collected in a single volume cleverly presented and packaged in a style mimicking the Marvel comics of the same era. Piskor's exuberant yet controlled cartooning takes you from the parks and rec rooms of the South Bronx to the night clubs, recording studios, and radio stations where the scene started to boom, capturing the flavor of late-1970s New York City in panels bursting with obsessively authentic detail. With a painstaking, vigorous and engaging Ken Burns meets- Stan Lee approach, the battles and rivalries, the technical innovations, the triumphs and failures are all thoroughly researched and lovingly depicted.  plus the charismatic players behind the scenes like Russell Simmons, Sylvia Robinson and then-punker Rick Rubin. Piskor also traces graffiti master Fab 5 Freddy's rise in the art world, and Debbie Harry, Keith Haring, The Clash, and other luminaries make cameos as the music and culture begin to penetrate downtown Manhattan and the mainstream at large. Like the acclaimed hip hop documentaries Style Wars and Scratch, The Hip Hop Family Tree is an exciting and essential cultural chronicle and a must for hip hop fans, pop-culture addicts, and anyone who wants to know how it went down back in the day.
