Hip Hop Family Tree is in development to be an animated series.
Piskor announced this new development deal via Facebook and Twitter yesterday. “I've got a secret. I sold the rights a while back for Hip Hop Family Tree to be an animated series. A development deal. Shhhhhhhhhh...” No additional information on a production company, network, or timeframe were announced.
Fantagraphics released the third volume, Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 3; 1983 -1984, earlier this month. A year ago, Fantagraphics’ Associate Publisher Eric Reynolds told ICv2 that the first volume of the series had close to 20,000 copies in print (see “'Hip-Hop Family Tree'”). The second volume and a gift box set released last fall (see “'Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 2' and 'Gift Box Set'”).
