Greetings True Believers, during SDCC 2017 Marvel’s Next Big Thing panel, they announced a new title. This one will star the Children of the Atom. X-Men Grand Design will delve into the long history of Marvel’s mutants. The official synopsis says,
“A true inclusive book for all X-Men fans, X-Men Grand Design stitches together the stories of the important years of the X-Men. Bridging the history of everyone’s favorite mutants with the present day, it’s a title that truly sums up Marvel Legacy and its importance to the Marvel Universe.”
Marvel has tapped Eisner Award winner Ed Piskor to take on this endeavor. Known mostly for underground comics, like Hip-Hop Family Tree. This will be his first superhero comic. Issue one of his new story is set to hit store shelves in Fall of this year.
In my opinion, it is always nice to see new talent, and the premise intrigues me. What do you guys think? Are you familiar with Mr. Piskor’s work? Do you think he’ll be a good fit for the X-Men? Let us know in the comments below.
