    This is one of the strongest issues of Jean Grey's solo series, thanks in no small part to the art of Victor Ibanez. Read Full Review

    This is a sandbox with so much to play with inside, the opportunity isn't squandered by writer or artist. Jean Grey was one of the strongest X-Men titles before Marvel Legacy, there's no reason to believe it won't continue shining as bright. The approaching Phoenix spells even more thrills on the way.

    It's a fun story, it's got great artwork, and in the grand scheme of the story through the series, it is a great and logical next step. It takes into account some old, forgotten plot threads, which is nice to see for existing readers. Unfortunately, I think it would overall be a little confusing to anyone coming into this fresh.

    Issue #8 has many interesting qualities but strikes some low points by omitting key events in Emmas backstory in lieu of the paramount objective to intertwine Jeans personal journey and the central Phoenix plot. Read Full Review
