As children, we all had aspirations and dreams about what we would be when we grew up. Cartoonist Ed Piskor had the dream of becoming a professional artist, and his dedication and talent allowed that dream to become a reality.
After already making his name in the industry with his graphic novel series Hip Hop Family Tree, he now takes on the task of working on one of Marvel’s biggest teams with X-Men: Grand Design.
Issue Two of Six hit shelves on January 3rd and Piskor spoke to amNewYork about this project and how it all got started.
Piskor said, “I put a tweet out there into the universe and just said, ‘Marvel should just let me make whatever kind of X-Men comic I want to make.’ And they got in touch right away. And they said, ‘What do you want to do?’”
