Hip-Hop and Comics: Cultures Combining

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

UPDATED: Mon, Jul 08, 05:34PM
Since its earliest days in the South Bronx, Hip-Hop culture has been linked to comic books: graffiti and album covers utilize superhero imagery, rappers adopt secret identities and grandiose aliases, and producers incorporate sensibilities and samples into their music. Comics creators respond in kind by using the elements of Hip-Hop in street-level storytelling, incorporating graffiti techniques into logo design and art styles, and quoting rap lyrics for context and content. Patrick A. Reed (editor of Depth of Field magazine) brings together visual artists, comic book legends, and musical innovators to talk about the historical ties between Hip-Hop and comics, look at how the forms have intersected over the last four decades, and showcase current and upcoming projects.
