Phoenix Resurrection: The Return Of Jean Grey #1 (of 5) by Matthew Rosenberg

Phoenix Resurrection: 
The Return Of Jean Grey #1 (of 5)
by Matthew Rosenberg,
Leinil Yu (Illustrator)
"I just finished Phoenix Resurrection by @AshcanPress, and enjoyed it *immensely*! The story is captivating from the first page, and the entire comic reminded me why I love the X-Men so much! Thank you for writing, @AshcanPress. I didn't realize how much I had missed Jean Grey." 
Synopsis (via Goodreads): She will return, like a Phoenix from the ashes. Years ago, Jean Grey died and the X-Men mourned her. Since then, the world has changed, her teammates have lived without her and died without her. And now, when strange events start happening all over the world, those teammates can only come to one conclusion – the one true Jean Grey is back!

I think my tweet says it all! When I was trying to type this post, I couldn't think of a better way to say it, so I just quoted myself. 😅

The beginning of this comic is eerie and foreboding. There are a few things happening simultaneously, and no one has any idea what is going on. Sometimes stories allow the reader information that is withheld from the characters, but I'm equally in the dark. Nothing that happens makes sense, and I'm left needing more answers. Not just that... more everything.

Like I said in my tweet, this comic and its story reminded me why I love the X-Men. There are so many of them, all vibrant and filled with their own stories to tell, but I love watching them come together as a team. 

It's only going to be five issues, and the first one came out this week. It should still be available at your LCS! Get it! I promise you won't be disappointed!
