First Two Issues Of Marvel’s X-Men: Grand Design Go Back To Press

Everyone Has Designs On Piskor

♦ Marvel Comics is going back to press for second printings of issues 1 and 2 of X-Men: Grand Design, the critically acclaimed comic book series by Eisner Award-winning, indie cartoonist Ed Piskor. The second printings will feature all new covers by Piskor and will go on sale on 14 February 2018…

“I’ve been devoting myself to X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN for about two years and to know that the demand from readers has exceeded what stores have ordered is pretty thrilling,” said Piskor. “I’m really glad that the second printing will take care of that demand. If you think we have something special here just wait until summer when you get to see how I fold-in the gold standard stuff with Wolverine, Phoenix, Storm Colossus, Nightcrawler, and Kitty Pryde in X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN, SECOND GENESIS.“

Piskor, who is best known for documenting the history of hip hop with the award winning HIP HOP FAMILY TREE graphic novels, is writing, illustrating, coloring and lettering X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN, for an epic undertaking that distills three decades of complicated comic book continuity into one compelling, self contained story.

X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN will return late this summer with X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN, SECOND GENESIS issues 1 and 2.
