If you ever want to see an ode to 80’s rap mixed with space aliens, then I have the book from you. wax is a 13 year old boy, and his biggest dream is the be the best DJ ever. But it takes some practice to be the best. In Wax’s case, someone gets hold of a really rough cut song,that could be deadly. Now Wax has to save the world, make perfect rhymes, and become a s I Fuzhou master. Over all this middle grade graphic is not for me, but it has amazing illustrations and color work.
Just think first, whatever you do - consider if your brain is up to the gaudiest, trashiest artwork around, and if it could cope with a daft and childish sci-fantasy adventure where the characters talk in rap and hip-hop lingo.
Mine wasn't, and couldn't.
Sci-Fu is a fun graphic novel. The characters were diverse. Illustrations were colorful and full of action. I loved the classic rap lyrics throughout the text. I think this novel will truly capture the imagination of my students especially the boys.
