Review

"Jean Grey alive? Find out what happened to her after the infamous Dark Phoenix Saga. What a great collection of comics." -- J.M. Guillemette

About the Author

John Byrne, originally from Dublin, Ireland, is one of Britain's top cartoonists, comedy writers and stand-up comedians with wide-ranging experience in performance, production and the teaching of creative skills. He is currently the resident artist on Nickelodeon TV (UK), drawing live and unscripted, and often with "art materials" that include everything from sausages to toothbrushes to TV presenters with luminous paint in their hair. He has a six year-old son Pearse, is married to Fumi, and has a house full of teen in-laws (who he loves dearly especially since realizing the importance of babysitters!).

Chris Claremont is one of the bestselling comic writers in the world. He wrote The Uncanny X-Men for seventeen years as well as the novelization of the movie X-Men 2. He has been the co-creator of several top-selling series for Marvel Comics, including Excalibur, Wolverine, New Mutants, and, in the United Kingdom, Captain Britain. He wrote the Star Trek twenty-fifth-anniversary graphic novel Debt of Honor and a Next Generation sequel, Cry, Vengeance, for DC Comics, as well as" "Alien/Predator: The Deadliest of Species for Dark Horse. His debut novel was Firstflight, the story of a young female astronaut in the twenty-first century, to which he wrote two sequels, Grounded and Sundowner. He collaborated with George Lucas on three novels in The Chronicles of the Shadow War, and has delved into fantasy with the publication of Dragon Moon, a dark fantasy novel co-authored with his wife, Beth Fleisher. The couple lives in Brooklyn with their two children.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Phoenix Rising Premiere classic includes issues Avengers #263, Fantastic Four #286, X-Factor #1, and Classic X-Men #8 & #43 in one great graphic novel.

I bought Phoenix Rising at the same that I bought X-Men: The Dark Phoenix Saga and together they tell one of the greatest stories of x-men history. While I was already familiary with the Dark Phoenix Saga, I had never read the issues that comprise Phoenix Rising. I do think that readers need to know the Dark Phoenix Saga before reading this book and it helps to know about the X-Men relaunch that was done in Giant-Size X-Men #1 (collected here X-Men: We Are The X-Men TPB )

However, once you have the appropriate background, Phoenix Rising tells a great story-- really a rebirth of two immortal powers. The title entity known as the Jean Grey makes a return after being rediscovered in a cocoon/egg/dormant state. But the rebirth of the original X-Men as "X-Factor" was a much more moving moment for this marvel reader.

Modern readers of the X-men can confidently pick up Phoenix Rising and a few other quality graphic novels and have the most important backstory for their favorite mutants. Older readers of the X-men (like me) may not have ever read these issues. I never followed Marvel's various x-overs especially into titles like the Avengers and Fantastic Four (doing extra chores around the house didn't pay a whole lot back then). Either way, Phoenix Rising will be enjoyed by x-fans new and old.

I'm glad to have this book because it connects the dots between the original X-Men becoming X-Factor. Also it helped to figure out what happened between Cyclops and his wife.

All you need to know is that Jean Grey comes back from the dead and Cyclops walks out on his wife and kid, Madelyne and Nathan (who would become Cable). This story completely ruins everything that was created in the Dark Phoenix epic. Read the birth of Phoenix and the Dark Phoenix, but you are better off acting like this part of X-Men lore was never written. If you don't believe me just as the guy who come up with this idea. He will be the first to tell you.
