X-Men: Grand Design

X-Men: Grand Design Review

Over six tumultuous decades, the X-Men have carved a singular place in comic book lore and popular culture. From their riotous birth in the '60s, to their legendary reboot in the '70s, to their attitude adjustment in the '90s, to their battle against extinction in the '00s, the X-Men have remained unquestionably relevant to generations of readers, the ultimate underdogs in an increasingly complicated world. Now, New York Times-best-selling author Ed Piskor (Hip-Hop Family Tree, Wizzywig) takes you on a pulse-pounding tour of X-Men history unlike anything you've ever experienced before, an intricate labor of love that stitches together hundreds of classic and obscure stories into one seamless masterpiece of X-Men lore. This volume collects X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN and includes X-MEN #1 from 1963, masterfully recolored by Ed, along with other extras including recolored classic pinups. Presented in the same dynamic, oversized format of the best-selling Hip Hop Family Tree.

    Some Testimonial About This Book:

  • Quentin Wallace

    This was a mixed bag. One one hand, the art is good and it's printed on a different type of paper that makes it feel like an authentic older comic. But the thing is, there's really not a fluid story h...

  • Przemek Skoczy?ski

    Komiks napisany z miłości do X-Menów. Traktowałem to jak skrypt, który z grubsza zarysuje całość i w zasadzie trochę tak jest, ale to niesie ze sobą dosyć dramatyczne konsekwencje, np. tak...

  • Dave

    I thought this was a very funny and clever way to catch up on a massive and chaotic X-men history and Piskor does so with love, humor, and detail. I am looking forward to the next batch of stories th...

    The X-Men were the characters that got me into comics. I picked up all four issues of the X-Men Vs. Fantastic Four in the first comic book store I ever went to, and immediately fell in love with comic...

  • John H

    I loved this. Yeah, there were some abrupt transitions in the story, but when you consider the hundreds of X-Men comics, some of which probably don't mesh together very well, this book is an amazing a...

  • Adam Spanos

    The best and most ambitious X-Men project in decades! That Piskor is able to not only organize all of the tangled X-Men continuity but also make a coherent and interesting story out of it is a bit of ...

  • Adolf Hydra

    Simple plot but not bad, final expected but not bad, is an easy book to read and good for people who do not have a specific time for this activity since you can read in the truck, free spaces, etc....
