SDCC 2017 – Ed Piskor on X-Men Grand Design
SDCC updates folks, there will be a six issue X-Men book detailing the long history of the merry mutant with Ed Piskor working on the script called X-Men Grand Design.
The Hip-Hop Family Tree creator will be stitching the story from decades worth of stories starting from the Original 5 team of Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast, Iceman and Angel all towards the current roster and beyond.
And speaking of the Original 5, the covers will feature several characters in different costumes through the years.
Here’s the press release post-SDCC panel:
