Here it is, complete in one volume, Ed Piskor's all-in-one telling of the saga of the X-Men. The idea here being imagining this saga as being conceived start to finish as a unified whole, as an epic (and then some!) graphic novel. This volume collects all six double-size comic books, which had been, in turn, collected in three treasury editions. It also includes the three classic issues that were reprinted in the treasuries (recolored by Ed in PiskorColor™) along with all the covers. And then, there is the exclusive bonus material! First there is a brief illustrated history of the genesis of the project, which goes all the way back to Piskor's childhood and includes a generous sampling of his early, childhood X-Men drawings. And then there is the real reason to buy this edition: The Complete X-Men Grand Design "Script". This shows how Ed "wrote" the entire story – in pictures and words together. There is quite a bit to dig into here. "Reading" this script can double as a class in Piskor's process and demonstrates the indissoluble unity of words and pictures in his comics; they are one.
