    The illustrations are awesome and the story is fun, but the rap battles don't translate well to written text and, since the raps are kind of central to the whole concept of the book, it negatively impacted my impression of the book as a whole. ...

    Good little middle-grade graphic novel that manages to seamlessly connect sci-fi and hip-hop in 1980s Brooklyn. Some of the references may go over the head of younger readers, but all the knowing inclusions that Mercado adds into the narrative don't detract from the story-telling, so r...

    This is a cute, youth oriented, superhero story with vibrant colors and cartoonish sense of humor. The creator is obviously a hiphop head with a love for the culture and it shows in the references, art direction, and the playlist at the end of book. It earned three stars for the hiphop...

    A neat mashup of hip-hop, sci-fi, and kung-fu in a graphic novel for all ages. Wax is a talented kid DJ who gets transported into a different dimension, along with some of his friends and family, to learn ?sci-fu? and face an evil robot in a DJ showdown. Definitely a unique concept...

    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. ...

    Really retro but fully futuristic, Sci-Fu is a fun rap battle graphic novel. Wax's mix skills accidentally get him in a duel with rapping kung fu robot aliens. If Wax loses, the aliens gain control of not just Brooklyn, but the whole earth. If Wax wins, maybe he will also win the heart...

    Have you been looking for an all ages book featuring a mostly Black cast, an ice cream truck, robot aliens, hip-hop, and cats. Well, it's finally Your Year. Sci-Fu is a fun book, if you can stomach 80s style raps as written in the voice of young teenagers. It's silly, beautifully dr...

    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. ...

    I really enjoyed reading the comic. It kept my interest the whole way through. I loved how he is a middle schooler but a struggling Dj trying to get the girl. The artwork is incredible. The drawings are colorful and creative. The only problem is that the comic had some areas that were ...
