    This series really needs to break out of its current cycle of having Jean pair up with a different Marvel guest star every month. Read Full Review

    Compared to the issues that have come before, the seventh issue of Jean Greys solo series is by far and wide the weakest as the conceptualization of the story, dialog, and art, are the perfect trifecta of cloying over the top antics, melodrama, and failed humor that falls flat. With respect to the strong delivery of Hopeless so far, I hope this was simply a stumble. You know the ones we all have where we try to recover and play it off while everyone else pretends they didnt see it? Im choosing to look the other way. Just this once. Read Full Review

    For the first time, I have no real idea where Jean Grey is headed. Whenever the framework or structure for a story changes, theres some capacity for it to not quite land. Ive liked the set-up for the series so far, but this shift is one that is leaving me with a lot of questions. Whats going to happen from here? What does spectral Jean want and is she truly the Jean we know? How will Emma play a role moving forward? Hopeless has been hitting out the park on writing, so I have faith, but the series seventh issue is not quite what I expected and was maybe more ambitious than it needed to be via storytelling but less ambitious in visuals.

    Overall, as I'm sure I have made clear, I was really disappointed with this issue. Too much thrown in too fast and hit or miss art really brings this issue, and the series as whole down a few notches. But it is the characterization of ghost Jean Grey that completely turned me off. She was written totally out of character and was acting more like a child then her younger self ever has. I am really hoping that in the end this is not the Jean Grey we all know and love and it is another spirit that is just taking advantage of the situation. With the recently announced return of the adult Jean Grey coming soon, I really hope it is the later, because of this is a glimpse of the Jean Grey we're going to be seeing again, I would rather they just left her as a fond memory.

    This isnt a train wreck of a comic, but its far from functional. The narrative is confused, the art isnt particularly good, and old Jean Grey is borderline unbearable. Give this one a pass. Read Full Review
