The beats : a graphic history by Harvey Pekar ( Book )
7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This revelatory and exhilarating and funny book not only tells us of the Beat generation, but of a time when we as individuals felt truly free. It is as fresh and pertinent as the latest scholarly history only far more entertaining"--Studs Terkel
Wizzywig by Ed Piskor ( Book )
8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and French and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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" --From publisher's web site

"Yes yes, y'all! Acclaimed young cartoonist Ed Piskor (Wizzywig) schools you on the old school in this essential, explosively entertaining, encyclopedic cultural chronicle of an American art form that changed the world. Hip Hop Family Tree (originally serialized online at Boing Boing) takes you form the parks and rec rooms of the South Bronx to the night clubs, recording studios and radio stations where the scene started to boom, in panels bursting with obsessively authentic detail. The vivd personalities and magnetic performances of early stars like Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, Kurtis Blow, DJ Kool Herc, The Surgarhill Gang, and Funky 4+1 come to life, as do the no-less-charismatic players behind the scenes like Russell Simmons, Sylvia Robinson and Rick Rubin. And graffiti master Fab 5 Freddy meets Debbie Harry, Keith Haring, and Jean-Michel Basquiat as the music and culture begin to penetrate downtown Manhattan and the mainstream at large."--Back cover

This volume covers hits like Afrika Bambaataa's "Planet Rock," Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five's "The Message," and the movie Wild Style, and introduces superstars like NWA, The Beastie Boys, Doug E Fresh, KRS One, ICE T, and early Public Enemy.
