Hip-Hop and Comics: Cultures Combining
Hip-hop and comics are two American artforms that bring together disparate elements to create vast worlds of creativity. They share much common ground-rappers and graffiti artists utilize superheroic imagery and adopt larger-than-life alter egos; MCs and producers assemble universes with words and sound; comic creators draw on hip-hop's rich visual vocabulary and incorporate music, dance, and fashion into the fabric of their stories. Here, Patrick A. Reed (Depth of Field, ComicsAlliance) brings together an all-star group of graphic artists and musical innovators to discuss the ties between these two creative cultures.
