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.

This comic was a huge disappointment. The title is basically a lie. She doesn't "rise" in this book, if anything she sits around and reflects on things she's done. Read morePublished on April 22, 2013 by zombie phreak
