Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey #3: What the hell is in New Mexico?

Jean is out there, somewhere … in the Land of Enchantment???


Needless to say, there are SPOILERS ahead. You’ve been warned.


So far, besides the dead walking the Earth again, Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey has been all about location, location, location. The story starts in Annandale-on-Hudson, the upstate New York town where Jean grew up.
