Marvel is set to release five variant covers for the upcoming Phoenix rises event. When you connect them, they form a giant piece of art by Victor Hugo.
With the Jean Grey tale heating up at Marvel (see what I did there?), the publisher is rereleasing classic stories featuring Phoenix – and best of all, all of the issues will only be one dollar each!
A few weeks ago, Marvel revealed Jean Grey was returning in a new five-issue mini-series titled Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey.
Press Release Publisher Aspen Comics will be at Phoenix Comicon with a wealth of exclusives in tow this Thursday, May 28th through Sunday, May 30th. Frank Mastromauro (Shrugged), Peter Steigerwald (The ZooHunters), Vince Hernandez (Fathom: Kiani), Siya Oum (Lola XOXO: Wasteland Madam), Tom Hutchison (Big Dog Ink), and Heather Finley (Executive Assistant: Iris Annual) will be in attendance at booths #9067 and #1066.
When people joke about the impermanence of death in comics, they usually mention Jean Grey and the shenanigans regarding her heroic sacrifice and the various workarounds used to bring the character back from the great beyond. But, would you be interested to know that her heroic sacrifice back in X-Men #137 wasn’t the ORIGINAL plan? Your Major Spoilers (retro) review awaits!
