"They say What You See Is What You Get-- but Kevin "Boingthump" Phenicle could always see more than most people. In the world of phone phreaks, hackers, and scammers, he's a legend. His exploits are hotly debated: could he really get free long-distance calls by whistling into a pay phone? Did his video-game piracy scheme accidentally trigger the first computer virus? And did he really dodge the FBI by using their own wiretapping software against them? Is he even a real person? And if he's ever caught, what would happen to a geek like him in federal prison? Inspired by the incredible stories of real-life hackers, WIZZYWIG is the thrilling tale of a master manipulator-- his journey from precocious child scammer to federally wanted fugitive, and beyond. In a world transformed by social networks, data leaks, and digital uprisings, Ed Piskor's debut graphic novel reminds us how much power can rest in the hands of an audacious kid with a keyboard"--Publisher's web site

"Book 2 covers the early years of 1981-1983, when Hip Hop has made a big transition from the parks and rec rooms to downtown clubs and vinyl records.

Der amerikanische Underground-Comiczeichner Ed Piskor ist derzeit in aller Munde. Sein Comic "Wizzywig" über die frühe Hacker-Szene und den fiktiven Computer-Nerd Kevin "Boingthump" Phenicle wurde auch an dieser Stelle positiv besprochen. Mit der deutschen Übersetzung des 1. Bandes seiner Comicserie über die Geschichte des HipHop ist jetzt auch das deutsche Feuilleton auf ihn aufmerksam geworden. Piskor beschreibt die Entwicklung des HipHop von 1975 bis in die frühen 1980er. Was zunächst wie die Aufzählung unendlich vieler Protagonisten dieser mittlerweile etablierten Musikrichtung wirkt, entwickelt sich zu einer vielschichtigen, detaillierten Analyse, die kulturelle und soziale Einflüsse, z.B. aus der New Yorker Bronx, hervorhebt. In einigen Zeichnungen erweist Piskor der Comic-Ikone R. Crumb seine Referenz, ansonsten pflegt er einen klaren Zeichenstil mit einer Farbgestaltung, die der von Plattencovern und Filmaufnahmen aus den 1970ern entspricht. Zeitgemäe︢ Wissensvermittlung, die neben dem umfassenden Titel "XXX - Drei Jahrzehnte HipHop" von N. George gern empfohlen wird
