Marvel have released some preview X-Men artwork to celebrate the upcoming publication of the trade paperback edition of Ed Piskor’s X-Men: Grand Design:
The trade paperback will collect Piskor’s recoloured X-Men #1, as well as the first two issues of X-Men: Grand Design. It will be published as a Marvel Treasury Edition.
X-Men: Grand Design has been very well-received by both fans and critics alike, with our own James Cooke describing it as “…a love letter to the X-Men, a vast summary painstakingly compiled by a fellow fan.” The X-Men are popular as ever in 2018, with Wolverine: The Long Night currently being released as Marvel’s first adventure in podcast audio dramas with Stitcher.
“Ed’s the best new cartoonist in forty years and every line and texture he puts to paper proves an unparalleled familiarity with every moment of the discipline’s history,” said BOING BOING’s Managing Editor Rob Beschizza.
“My work on X-Men would never have been possible without Marvel’s collaboration and the popularity I’ve achieved thanks to Boing Boing’s support on their site for over four and a half years,” said Piskor. “It’s a pleasure to bring the Marvel mutants to the Happy Mutants of BB for this limited serialization of X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN. I created each page to function as its own unique and complete strip that, when read in total, would tell a bigger story. Over the course of the next few months I’ll be providing a director’s commentary with every strip, to give you, the reader, some insight into where my mind was when putting the whole tale together. There’s a lot that goes into each episode, and this is the exact crowd who would appreciate the deep-dive look under the hood.”
The X-Men: Grand Design trade paperback is on sale now in bookstores, and will be on sale in comic shops from tomorrow, April 4th.
