"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.

By S. H. Wells TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 17, 2010
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.

A Kid's Review on April 21, 2013
Format: Paperback
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. This should have been titled "Phoenix Aftermath," or "Phoenix Wrap-Up."

The story is pretty boring and it's pretty much just the clean up after the whole Phoenix saga. It just serves to get Jean Grey back into the Marvel continuity, break up Scott Summers and Madelyn Prior, and get him back with Jean Grey. It also served to remind me why I stopped reading X-Men back in the 90's. Every male on the X-Men/X-Factor/X-Force teams with a pulse wants to sleep with Jean Grey. She's not even that interesting of a character to read about. So why do all these male characters want to get with her? Is it because she's female, has red hair and breasts? I kinda like my characters to have more defining characteristics than, "Ohhh she's hot and has curves!"

The only good parts of this book were the parts where the Fantastic Four and the Avengers show up and interact with Jean Grey. Even then the interesting parts are the Avengers and the Fantastic Four just being there!

I can't recommend this to anyone, give it a pass.
