Marc Silvestri is a very successful comic book artist and creator. He is one of the founders, and the current CEO, of Image Comics.
And of course, Alan Silvestri is a very successful film composer and now vintner. He is also possibly the nicest, most reasonable, most easygoing person you will ever meet, especially considering how wildly successful he is.
Ever since the 1980s, when I read X-Men and loved the Back to the Future soundtrack—and learned that both Silvestris are Italian-American (duh)—I wondered...could they be they related?
I guess it’s a common enough Italian name...but how common?
Within the past year, at some point I was commenting on a Facebook thread with Sandra Silvestri (Alan’s wife)—so I asked!
No. They are not related.
