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.

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 stu

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 ...more

Es una serie interesante aunque un poco extraña luego de la gran "La última canción del Fénix", resulta difícil qué se quiso demostrar o el argumento que guardaba poca relación con la anterior o por lo menos había muchas diferencias en la expresión del Fénix.
En este caso las propietarias del Fénix van a ser las gemelas Cuckoos de Stepford, las cuales van a alojar el poder del Fénix entre las tres, cosa que servirá en adelante para explicar por qué su corazón se vuelve de diamante.
Así mismo la pa

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?

This terrible "story" does not even have decent art to save it. Just awful.

Nice art an interesting story. As a continuation of Endsong, there are some really mind-blowing revelations in this book and overall I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

Por fin completo la historia de las cucos. No es un cómic de 5 estrellas pero es un digno final. Y todo lo que sea Frost y Kitty es bienvenido.

Had a bit of a story and what felt like some form of purpose. More than Endsong at least.

Companion to Phoenix: Endsong, this time centered around the Stepford Cuckoos. Great art, good story.

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.
