    Ughhh, I didn't expect this to be worse than Endsong, but somehow it was. I figured not having Greg Land on art would be a step up, but Tyler Kirkham is almost as bad. On top of that, the story is a lot weaker, lacking the emotional gravitas of Endsong. I think I enjoyed the new origin for the Cuckoos, but the writing for the Phoenix just lacked any sort of exploration or innovation. It's like Grek Pak wanted to use the concepts of the Phoenix and the World (from Morrison's run), and just mashed Ughhh, I didn't expect this to be worse than Endsong, but somehow it was.

It's like Grek Pak wanted to use the concepts of the Phoenix and the World (from Morrison's run), and just mashed them together, and it just fell completely flat. The X-Men (Whedon's line-up) were also written pretty poorly, even Emma. All of the dialogue just felt really stiff. Some of the concepts used here could've easily been cool, but the execution was extremely poor. The ending was also one of the most anti-climatic endings in recent memory. Just a very mediocre mini-series as a whole. Could be worth reading if you want to know the origin of the Stepford Cuckoos, but otherwise just skip this entirely. 4/10. Mediocre.

    Continuing the great X-read of 2017 that has now stretched into 2018... Okay. So I am way behind on reviewing these x-books that I have been reading. So I am going to just kind of ramble about all of them and copy/paste my thoughts. Which will make for a bit of a mess and I am sorry.

Quick ramblings: Cable and Deadpool continues to be surprisingly good though a little more scattered in these couple of volumes. X-Men the Blood of Apocalypse was rushed in my opinion... Phoenix Warsong was pretty decent. Melodramatic but not a bad story. (and when is a Phoenix story not melodramatic?) New X-Men is a good series with some great characters that grow volume by volume. Uncanny First Foursaken was not my cup of tea really. Black Panther: The Bride was probably much better to BP readers. As part of an X-Men run, it can probably be skipped. Wolverine Origins born in blood was not particularly memorable. Astonishing X-Men will possibly get its own review as it is a reread and interesting as such... Civil War was one of the first times in my life that I could say that the movie was better than the book. For the most part, it was really boring to me. The X-Men universe tie-ins were only slightly more interesting to me. X-factor continues to be a delight. Exiles continues to be great. I need to get back to writing reviews of these as I finish them. Reading them in quick succession like this, I begin to forget what happened in individual books (which I suppose equally speaks to the books themselves and my memory...)

    There are some interesting ideas here and it fits in nicely with Morrison's X run. The central premise should have been as emotionally satisfying as Endsong but isn't done as well. I'm not a fan of the Top Cow style brought by Kirkham and the rest of the team, and the book doesn't even look as nice as Land's mostly lifeless tracing. Worth a read for the interesting backstory to the Cuckoos, but not much else. There are some interesting ideas here and it fits in nicely with Morrison's X run.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Where did the cuckoos start? I don't know. Where did John Sublime start? I don't know. By that, I mean, where did these characters appear. It seems kind of murky and out of order maybe. Anyway, all OK even if this SHIELD agent is basically a character only Pak cares about. (Has any SHIELD agent ever been loved?) Where did the cuckoos start? I don't know. Where did John Sublime start? I don't know. By that, I mean, where did these characters appear.

    Oof, another book in French completed! Found myself reading faster and easier than the first. Plus, no matter the language, it's always fun to see old school x men in action😊 Oof, another book in French completed! Found myself reading faster and easier than the first.

    The story was not as strong as Endsong--not as emotional--but it was a lot stranger. If you were a fan of Grant Morrison's work, this is a nice continuation. It's really weird. The art is much better than Endsong, thankfully. The story was not as strong as Endsong--not as emotional--but it was a lot stranger.

And it WAS enjoyable indeed! It focussed on some of the more interesting mutants. Specifically, I was able to learn a bit more about the weird (and sexy) Stepford Cuckoos and my home girl, Emma Frost. It also managed to add some interesting layers to the Phoenix Force, which is definitely one of the strangest metaphysical concepts in all of Marvel. Did it always make sense? Not quite... but it wasn’t boring, rarely made me roll my eyes, and featured some fascinating and gorgeously rendered sequences. In a way, it felt at home within the Morrison/Whedon X-verse. That’s a very good thing, because that’s when X Men truly hit it’s prime. Is this mandatory reading? Nah. But it’s a short, fun little tale that will make your imagination run wild and keep you entertained and happy for an hour or two. Well done, Greg!

    Greg Pak usually does a good job playing with other writers' toys. His work on the Hulk is the best stuff since Peter David's, and I enjoyed the few Battlestar Galactica comics of his I read. Here, he tinkers with a few of Grant Morrison's weirder additions to the X-Universe from New X-Men, but leaves the toys in worse shape than when he started. The Stepford Cuckoos are three (though they were once five) identical blondes that share one cold, humorless, telepathic mind.

They're the prized students of the cold, humorless, telepathic Emma Frost. In this book, we get their needless origin story, the confusing reintroduction of the previously confusing Weapon Prime, and the reemergence of the titular Phoenix Force. The team of X-Men dealing with the bombshells gone bad is Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men lineup, but in Pak's hands, they have none of the pathos or humor, and come off as much less intelligent. All in all, this is a needless origin story miniseries that isn't all that fun to read. Even the zombies aren't that entertaining.

    I missed this when it first came out and a friend loaned me her copy. My reaction mostly consists of me wanting to re-read things to see how the addition of this story shapes my reaction the other stories. How does it fit with Endsong? Does the characterization of the Cuckoos in current continuity match this? Mostly it illustrates one of my main frustrations with the X-Men comics - a storyline is done with some loose ends left over and all those loose ends are then dropped once the writer moves I missed this when it first came out and a friend loaned me her copy.

Mostly it illustrates one of my main frustrations with the X-Men comics - a storyline is done with some loose ends left over and all those loose ends are then dropped once the writer moves on to something else. Characters come and go depending on whether or not the writer likes them; characterization is variable. Still, as a stand-alone story it worked for me once I figured out what was going on and recalled some of the previous miniseries. Emma remains a fascinating character although somehow I doubt that we'd see such a small reaction from her in main continuity following the revelations here; Emma is so protective of those who are simply her students, I can only imagine how protective she would be of her actual children.

    oh gosh. not having a solid grasp of what "the phoenix" is outside of "some version of jean grey that isn't always her" and not really understanding who the cukoos were (outside of the Astonishing run), made this poorly written, poorly drawn book even more convoluted and confusing. more work was put into the variant covers than anything else. was it really anything more than an excuse to draw teenage triplets in various outfits? oh gosh. not having a solid grasp of what "the phoenix" is outside of "some version of jean grey that isn't always her" and not really understanding who the cukoos were (outside of the Astonishing run), made this poorly written, poorly drawn book even more convoluted and confusing. more work was put into the variant covers than anything else. was it really anything more than an excuse to draw teenage triplets in various outfits?

    Very strange, but overall okay. I think "Cuckoo Warsong" would have been a much more appropriate title. Second reading, Apr 2014. I liked this volume a little better this time. It certainly fills in a lot of holes that were left from past plotlines. But it's almost all action, and very little substance. And there's just no getting past the Top Cow art.

    I adore having not just an origin for the Cuckoos but also a pretty interesting one. The whole Phoenix bit, on the other other hand, is murky and not the most interesting part of the story. At least it seems to have some repercussions in the end (though they've been largely thrown out as other writers decided to use the Phoenix YET AGAIN).

    Hate the art, didn't much care for the story (I've loved Pak elswhere but not on this) which reveals the mutant "Stepford Cuckoos" are actually nanotech creations designed to take over the Phoenix Force for a mutie-hating bad guy. Uninspiring, uninteresting story, and did I mention the art was awful?

    it was a great follow on from Endsong and I really like the continuation of the story. I know that a lot of like the Scott/Jean pairing but to tell the truth I prefer him with Emma Frost.

    Emma, as always, was fabulous. But I'm not fond of the drawing style, and the plot dragged a bit towards the middle. Emma, as always, was fabulous. But I'm not fond of the drawing style, and the plot dragged a bit towards the middle.

    Captivating art, well-developed story, playful crosstalks, flat scenario. I really enjoyed Jacob.
