    A surprise team-up and a nice nod to Scott and Jean's past helps this miniseries continue to deliver. Read Full Review

    Rosenberg is giving us an amazing story as he begins to tease at the answers but still leave us wondering what's next. And I'm more excited than I have been in a long while to find out. Two weeks is way too long to wait! Read Full Review

    Another great issue that is really fleshing out both Jean's turmoil and the mutants reaction to it. Read Full Review

    Does the powerful aspects of our past selves overcome what we have transformed into today? Jean Grey is no longer dead, but which piece of her is the strongest part of her resurrection? What does this change about the X-Men and their fallen friend? The presence of shadows stretched across the issue; which really spoke to the idea of a rebirth of “darkness”. Which is probably the most ironic thing to arise in the presence of fire. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 10, 2018

    Phoenix Resurrection: Return Jean Grey #3 starts to give us some answers and that is all you can ask for when following the madness that is the Phoenix returning. Overall this story is unpredictable which is a step up from most stories where someone is coming back to life. Needless to say they were already on the right track since by all accounts Jean is already alive. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Will Morin Jan 16, 2018

    Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey #3 starts strong and fails to keep momentum, though the few final pages of this otherwise exciting tale dont ruin the issue as a whole. If youre excited for the return of Jean Grey, or if you want to be but need some convincing, this is the issue where things really take off, and despite a few issues, the payoff is well-earned.

    PHOENIX RESURRECTION #3 brings a much needed fire to a series that still has yet to bring any satisfying answers. Read Full Review

  • 7.0 - Roger Palmer Jan 10, 2018

    This is one of those issues where the story barely moves forward, its interesting to see all the pieces slide together but on its own merits, very little really happens. Once again the art style is great and one of the best things about this series. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 10, 2018

    It's an issue of building and while that'll work when read in one sitting, it doesn't as individual issues. One wonders how this would have read if it was released all at once as a graphic novel. While I'm still reading the event to see where it goes, I generally feel like I haven't missed much up to this point. Some editing to speed up the pacing would have absolutely helped the first three issues and it should be interesting to see how the rest of the series goes but so far this is greater hype than entertainment.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Jan 13, 2018

    A major push forward needs to happen in the next issue or this runs the risk of losing impatient readers. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 10, 2018

    Phoenix Resurrection has crossed the halfway mark and still has yet to live up to its potential. Even as issue #3 makes some strides in terms of the X-Men's role in this tale, it stumbles due to rushed, unsatisfying artwork. There's still room for this book to bounce back in the remaining two issues, but based on the course of the series so far that seems unlikely. Read Full Review
