What an ending! It's amazing to see these characters, and
while I went in with a good dose of nostalgia, that last
page is a reminder that we are in new territory here.

One splendid aspect of this experience is the attention to detail in the backgrounds of each panel. Somewhere along the line in the late 80s or early 90s artists stopped bothering to include the narrative context of a background in their panels. Sure, they could draw a nice close up or action shot - but without the narrative context, it felt hollow.

These 'issues' are liberally strewn with fabulous backgrounds, providing a consistency of storytelling context that has largely left the industry. Modern artists could learn a lot from this superb sequential storytelling. Clearly it is a labour of love.

Very much looking forward to the story of Jean/Phoenix unfolding for us.

And I have to say that I think JB is doing a masterful job at walking the line of picking up where we "left off" while branching off into new territory without going too far off into left field to drive home the point that this is different. It takes a Master storyteller to pull that off. Luckily, we have one!

Thanks again for giving this to us, JB. It is much appreciated.

I know I've said it before, but I'm loving your layouts on this, JB. Some of the best work of your career here.
