X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN by Award Winning HIP HOP FAMILY TREE Cartoonist Ed Piskor

30 Years of Iconic Comics Books

8,000 Storytelling Pages

1 Unexpected, Unprecedented and Uncanny Undertaking

New York, NY) Eisner Award-winning indie cartoonist Ed Piskor’s unexpected, unprecedented and Uncanny X-Men comic book series X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN has everyone talking. Best known for documenting the history of hip-hop with the award-winning HIP HOP FAMILY TREE graphic novels, Piskor is sampling and distilling more than 8,000 pages of superheroic storytelling to create a definitive remix of the first 280 original issues of X-Men comic books and 30 years of complicated continuity into one seamless masterpiece of superheroic storytelling. Piskor is writing, drawing, inking, coloring and lettering all six 40 page issues of X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN, which Marvel will publish over three years as three separate but interconnected mini-series — X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN, X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN-SECOND GENESIS and  X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN-X-TINCTION. The series’ first issue, on sale now from Marvel Comics, is already a critical and commercial hit.

On January 3rd, 2018, Marvel will publish the second issue of X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN. Then on April 17, 2018, Marvel will collect both issues of X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN, as an oversized paperback collection in the same size and format as HIP HOP FAMILY TREE, and will also include the first issue of X-MEN by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby masterfully recolored by Piskor, and a host of recolored classic pinups. Each X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN trade paperback will feature a classic X-MEN comic book, recolored by Piskor.

“This is a project I’ve always wanted to read and it’s an honor to be trusted to make it,” said Piskor. “X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN was made upon the shoulders of giants so I knew that I had lightning in a bottle. The extraordinary response from the readers proves this as fact. Just you wait until the Dark Phoenix era. Retailers, I suggest you adjust future orders accordingly. The fans have spoken.”
