Phoenix Resurrection Reading Order Checklist

You’ve probably heard the old saying “nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” While this is true, a version of this can also be applied to the X-Men character Jean Grey, where nothing is certain except her death and eventual resurrection.

Since her death in 2004, fans have been quietly waiting for her return. Well, the wait is finally over with Phoenix Resurrection, which promises to show the return of the classic character. Will she be the Jean Grey that readers remember or will she something more sinister? I guess you’ll have to read to find out.

To make it easy to read, I’ve put together the Phoenix Resurrection Reading Order Checklist. It includes every need to know about what to read, creative teams and release dates.
