Just for fun.
As you almost certainly know by now, Ed Piskor’s X-Men: Grand Design is a 6-issue distillation of the original series’ first 300 or so issues. Basically, Piskor took decades’ worth of material and boiled it down to a coherent, straightforward narrative, done up in his distinctive cartooning style.
The first two issues, which make up the series’ first volume, have been collected in a nearly Treasury-sized trade paperback that’s out this week. (Click here for more on that.)
Since the first volume captures the first wave of mutantdom, it seemed like a good time for a 13 COVERS spotlight on the X-Men of Lee, Kirby, Thomas, Adams, et al.
