Hip Hop Family Tree may soon be coming to a TV near you.

The comic's author Ed Piskor announced on Twitter and Facebook Monday that he has sold the rights for Hip Hop Family Tree to become an animated series, as part of a recent development deal. Piskor didn't provide any further details about when we might be seeing this new animated series or any specifics on what it will be about, but he promised in his post on Facebook that there would be "more on this later."

Transforming Hip Hop Family Tree into an animated series seems like such a good idea, it's shocking that no one has done it sooner. A Hip Hop Family Tree animated series would not only bring Piskor's vivid and vintage-looking illustrations to life, but it would also hopefully be able to feature some of the groundbreaking music that the comic is all about. 

Hip Hop Family Tree is a hip-hop history comic strip that has been serialized on the pop culture blog Boing Boing since 2012. In each installment, Piskor covers defining moments in the history and development of this American art form, from the release of Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" to the first rap group to perform on Saturday Night Live to the day Dr. Dre met Ice Cube. Piskor released the third volume of his Hip Hop Family Tree books earlier this month.
