“Rap Robot Max”, the first hip-hop comic book

Today, the hip-hop industry and everything connected with it – music, clothes, concert tickets – is a place where many billions of dollars rotate, but from the beginning of the 70s to the beginning of the 80s it was more of a job from the category ” Do it yourself”. DJs and AMs burned at parties in community centers; dancers practiced their movements in clubs, not in video; and artists began to wrest their way from the bottom, and not from the galleries. It was in that spirit that Eric Orr, an artist from the Bronx, published the comic strip “Robot Max Max” dedicated to hip-hop culture in 1986, which became widely known as the first hip-hop comic book. Orr fell in love with comics in his early childhood — so much so that he and his brothers were ready to steal Sunday comics from the church. The first comic-style drawing he created depicted Charlie Brown (the hero of the comic book series Little Bellied Trigger, orig. Peanuts – approx. Continue reading

Jeff Jackson, author of Destroy All Monsters, about literature that conveys the unbridled power of rock music

Have you ever thought that you are being deceived? So literary critic Johnny Rotten has signed his monthly column, The Great Rock and Roll Novel, for the London Review of Books. Fans usually agreed with him: so many outstanding memoirs, biographies, historical monographs and collections of essays on rock have been written, so why are there so few worthy works of art? It would seem that this is an ideal topic to study, but it may be just as difficult to breathe really new life into these three familiar chords, as well as into the stone itself. “Destroy all monsters” is my attempt, inspired by Mr. Rotten’s burning pen, to write the latest rock novel. But, fantasizing about the spectacular death of the genre, I knew that I owed much to those novels that managed to capture fleetingness, mystery, Perception changes the charm and unbridled power of the best that exists in the rock. These works – with scenes unfolding on different Continue reading

Difficulties in illustrating Anne Frank’s diary

After living a year and a half locked up in her father’s office building, 14-year-old Anna Frank writes in her diary that she wants to be an ordinary teenager and “see the world”. She envies the people who enter the building “with the wind in clothes and cold on the cheeks.” Outside the walls of the “refuge”, in the very heart of Amsterdam, Anna, together with her family and friends, is hiding from the horrors of Nazi control, which spread to the Netherlands and most of Europe, the raging World War II and the regime of Adolf Hitler, who massively exterminated Jews and those whom the Nazis did not consider for the people. The Anne Frank Diary has become one of the most popular Holocaust expositions. Partly because the narration is on behalf of an ordinary teenager who lives in far from ordinary circumstances; it humanizes war and genocide. Despite the fact that her diary is not the only chronicle of the war of this kind, he proved his long-term influence and incredible coverage of more than 25 million copies sold, over Continue reading
