And... it's a wrap! Here is the third and final Treasury Edition of Ed Piskor's X-Men: Grand Design trilogy, his soup-to-nuts overview of the epic (his)story – or, perhaps, (his&her)story, as there are plenty of women X-"Men" populating this volume – of the Mutant Marvel Masterwork known as... The X-Men! As he revisits the home stretch of Chris Claremont's epic – and defining – run on X-Men, Ed crams in so much story line that readers' heads will be spinning trying to keep up. And then he tops it off with a twist (knot?) ending that wraps up the Grand Design into a neat package. Grand Design is simultaneously a great way for newcomers to get introduced to the awesome X-Men saga, and for long time fans to revisit its highlights. Both will come away with fresh insights and a better sense of the mechanics of this marvelous saga's construction and be better able to see its embedded inflection points, as the power of Piskor's X-ray vision builds to the revelation that its uncanny design is indeed grand.
