Fantagraphics Books will collect Ed Piskor’s four-volume Hip Hop Family Tree in a new omnibus that will include not only the 360-page series but over 140 pages of additional material, including the covers and pages from the original Hip Hop Family Tree comic series that have never been collected before.  The 504-page hardcover will be released on October 17, 2023, with an MSRP of $75.00.

Hip Hop Family Tree started as a webcomic on BoingBoing and then was picked up by Fantagraphics, which published the first three volumes and serialized the fourth in magazine-format issues before collecting them in a single volume.  They also issued the first and second volumes as a box set with a bonus comic (see “‘Hip Hop Family Tree’ Vol. 2”).  Volume 2 of the series won the 2015 Eisner Award for Best Reality-Based Work, and the first and third volumes were nominated in that category as well.

Fantagraphics also announced Red Room: Crypto Killaz, a new four-issue miniseries by Piskor that’s a followup to his splatterpunk series Red Room (see “Fantagraphics to Publish Ed Piskor’s ‘Red Room’”).  The series will include variant covers by Peach Momoko and Jim Rugg.
