So, here we are two decades down the road after "The Dark Phoenix Saga" played out in the pages of "The Uncanny X-Men" and with the transformation of Jean Grey from Marvel Girl into Phoenix set up by the ending of the movie "X2: X-Men Unlimited." In reading the stories from "X-Men" #129-137 again from this vantage point in the space-time continuum I find it impossible not to think about the original ending that writer Chris Claremont and artist John Byrne had envisioned for the saga, in which Jean Grey is stripped of her mutant powers and down the road Magneto shows up and offers her the powers of the Phoenix. The intention was for Jean to refuse the powers and to stay an ordinary human being. I always thought that road not taken was a better payoff to "The Dark Phoenix Saga" than her allowing herself to be killed on the moon, but when Dark Phoenix ate the sun around which orbited the planet of the asparagus people, Marvel's editor-in-chief Jim Shooter dictated that Jean Grey had to pay for her life.
Actually, this trade paperback collection has two distinct but related storylines. "X-Men" #129-134 constitutes the culmination of the Hellfire Club plotline. Jason Wyndgarde has been playing mind games with Jean, laying the groundwork for a seduction that will turn her to evil. His goal is to make her his black queen, the counterpart to his white queen Emma Frost. But when he unleashes her dark side the result is the birth of Dark Phoenix. This is actually the better story arc in this collection with a lot more happening than in the issues specific to the rise and fall of Dark Phoenix.

La saga du : "Dark Phoenix" fait partie des grandes sagas en terme de comic. Ce récit a été publié en 1984 dans les numéros 129 à 137 de X-Men écrits par Chris Claremont et John Byrne et dessinés par John Byrne, avec Terry Austin comme encreur, Bob Sharen aux couleurs.

Cet arc ne se concentre pas uniquement sur l'événement Dark Phoenix mais nous montre les intrigues qui ont amené à l’avènement du "Dark Phoenix. C'est dans cette première partie que l'on voit Jean Grey soumise à une tentation. J'ai trouvé cette première partie assez intelligente et intéressante, de savoir où cela va mener Jean Grey.

Ensuite dans la seconde partie les X-men font face au Phénix Noir (Dark Phoenix), avec des moments tragiques et touchant, et une fin logique et inévitable.

Le récit est donc très bon dans l'ensemble, mais comme toujours avec Claremont je n'aime pas la façon dont celui-ci raconte ses histoires ce qui fait que du coup pour moi ce livre est un bon livre mais pas un livre exceptionnel alors que celui-ci avait l'histoire pour atteindre ce but.

Pour le dessin John Byrne est fidèle à lui-même toujours aussi bof bof, mais bon rien de dramatique.

Pour cette édition, on a droit a des détails des couvertures originales mais pas celles-ci, sinon on a le récit en intégralité.

Seule sa mort sera la délivrance, mais les X-Men sont-ils prêts à sacrifier l'une des leurs ? Chaque fan ou curieux du monde des X-Men se doit de posséder pareil ouvrage.

L'histoire de la Phoenix Noire (the Dark Phoenix) est une histoire tres belle parce que il y a des moments ou on comprend l'amitie de Phoenix, une entite tres puissante. Wolverine, Colossus, Storm, le Profeseur-X, Cyclops, La Bete, Nightcrawler et l'Ange(the Angel)combattent l' Impere Shar, et les choses ne sont pas bonnes pour les heros. A la fin, la Phoenix Noire prefere detruire sois meme. Le final est tragique pour Cyclops et ses amis. Et avant cette battaille, il y a beaucoup de personages comme Emma Frost, connuite comme la Reine Blanche (White Queen), Harry Leland, le Roi Noir (Black King) et le (maledict) Mastermind (Jason Wyngarde)et le rest du Club Infernale (Hellfire Club), le Senateur Robert Kelly, Dazzler (Allison Blaire) et Kitty Pryde, Monsieur et Madame Pryde, le Docteur Grey (pere de Jean) Elaine Grey (la mere de Jean) et Sarah (soeur de Jean) avec trois apparitions: Mister Fantastic et Thing des quattre Fantastiques,Mister Fantatisc dit a son ami Ben Grimm qui il y a peutetre une entite plus puissante de Galactus, le Docteur Strange, Spider Man et le Surfer d'Argent,(Silver Surfer/Norrin Radd), qui il pense que l'entite est comme lui, une amourose de l' espace et des etoiles, mais il sait qui elle n'est pas une personne comme lui, mais une monstre.
Pour les fans de X-Men, de l'avventure, je vous conseille de lire ce Comic Book (Bande Dessine)

A wonderful trip into the past... 21 février 2002
Par Jeffrey Ellis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This graphic novel reprints one of the classic X-Men stories of old -- the Dark Phoenix saga. For those who might not be up on their comic history, the Dark Phoenix Saga told the story of how Jean Grey -- one of the original X-Men -- found herself cruelly manipulated by the evil mutant Mastermind until she finally lost control of her own powers and became a threat to the very future of the universe. In the end, it falls to the X-Men (led by Jean's lover, Cyclops) to either bring her back to sanity or destroy her. This was perhaps the pinnacle of the Chris Claremont/John Byrne creative team and certainly very few subsequent X-Men stories have come close to touching the quality of the Dark Phoenix Saga. Chris Claremont's secret as a comic book writer was that he never wrote down to his audience. While some others might have simply said, "Hey, it's only a comic book," and cashed in their paycheck, Chris Claremont approached his X-Men stories with a sincerity and integrity that elavated the best of his work out of the super hero genre. As always the characterization of the individual X-Men is strong with Wolverine truly coming into his own. Even the usually somewhat dull Cyclops is given one of his few chances to shine in this story and Claremont manages to present a multifaceted view of this sometimes overly upright figure. The dialogue, especially Cyclops' final monolouge on the moon, is also far more powerful (and at times genuinely witty) than what is generally expected from a "comic book." Over the course of this story, Claremont and Byrne introduced several characters that would later become key ingrediants to the X-Men's success -- the Hellfire Club, Dazzler, Kitty Pryde, and all of them show their future promise from their very first appearances.
I was a kid when these issues first came out and I can remember what an impact they had on me at the time. Not to be overdramatic but back in 1980, the fate of Jean Grey affected me much the same way the fate of Jay Gatsby affects me now. Now, some might scoff at that or say that its easier to please children but that's not true. Even more so than adults, children and young teens can spot when someone's just going through the motions. Every year, hundreds of new comic books are released. Most cease publication after less than six issues. X-Men survived. It takes a lot to make an impact on you when you're young and that was what made Claremont and Byrne's X-Men so popular. Unlike future writers and artists, they never took their audience for granted. With the Dark Phoenix Sage, they crafted one of the great legends of my youth. When I recently reread it, I do so for the sake of nostalgia but I was overjoyed to discover that even though I'd gotten older and subsequent events in the X-Men had cheapened a lot of what those earlier issues were about, the story hadn't suffered. As both a piece of childhood nostalgia and as a story held up on its own considerable terms, the Dark Phoenix Saga is a powerful piece of work and it is a must-have for all comic book fans -- past, present, and future.

Still the best ever 9 octobre 2000
Par Christopher Griffen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The Dark Phoenix Saga by Chris Claremont and John Byrne was simply the best comic book story I have ever read. While this trade paperback contains most of it, the story really ran for about 25 issues *before* the issues in the TPB.
It started as a subplot when the mutant X-Man, Jean Grey, was possessed by the Phoenix entity, a being of great power that slowly transformed her into one of the most powerful superbeings in the universe. The story contained in this book is the climactic end to the story. As Phoenix, Grey becomes more and more powerful to the point where she can no longer fully control the urges that her godlike abilities give her. A shadowy organization called the Hellfire Club seeks to control her and manipulate her power to their ends. Meanwhile, her fellow X-Men, including her love Scott Summers (a.k.a., Cyclops), seek to infiltrate the Hellfire Club. Ultimately they end up defending Phoenix after she has unleashed her powers in ways they never dreamed imaginable.
The Dark Phoenix Saga is a story of power, love, subterfuge and tragedy. Each of the X-Men has their moment to shine in this story. Of particular note is the sequence wherein Wolverine singlehandedly rescues the entire team, one of the best single-issue stories ever, in my opinion.
Claremont and Byrne were at the peak of their abilities in this story. Neither has shone as brightly before or since. While stories like The Dark Knight Returns and Watchmen are often said to be the best comic story ever created, my vote goes to the Dark Phoenix Saga.

Classic Story: You MUST read this to be considered a fan. 29 janvier 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The quintessential X-men story. Written almost twenty years ago, the storyline shows the reason why the X-men are so popular: despite having all their powers, they are subject to the same temptations and succumb to the same sins as us mere mortals. Amidst all the action you have to have in a comic book, there is the evolving love affair between Scott and Jean, and Wolverine's side role in it. There's the addition of Kitty Pryde, and her journey as she discovers and develops her talents. There's the first appearance of Sebastian Shaw, Emma Frost, and all the other characters who evolve into important places of the X-men mythology. Of course, there's the fate of Jean Grey, and the final admonition that "absolute power corrupts absolutely" (which has, by the way, since been used ad infinitum by any other comic book writer who wanted to sound cool). A very well-told, well-illustrated, and rich comic book. A good introduction to the X-men, if you've never met them before. If you have, and are more familiar with their current incarnations, this book gives you somewhat of an idea where they came from.

Now THIS is Claremont... 16 février 2005
Par Raymond A. Wonsowski - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If you are anything like me, and read Claremont's more recent work, scratch your head, and wonder if Claremont has any relevance anymore in comicbookland, THE DARK PHOENIX SAGA is the answer.

If you are new to the X-men universe, and want to know the merry mutants at their very best, or your only exposure to them has been in the movies, this is the book that should be first on your list.

Claremont, the writer, and Byrne/Austin, the art team, are as if they were thinking with the same brain. The result is one of the most breathless, rollercoaster, and truly epic sagas in comic book history. Cyclops, Phoenix, Wolverine, and the rest are written and rendered so well, you can almost hear the dialogue being delivered.

In short, this is the closest you will ever come to holding a wide-screen summer blockbuster in your own two hands. You will not regret this purchase.

One of the most important comic stories of all time 17 mars 2004
Par Edward Aycock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The Dark Phoenix saga has too much backstory to really mention in a review. Both the history of the character of Jean Grey and the writer/artists conflicts with the then editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics isn't found anywhere in this book (and believe me, it adds a lot to the tale) but the co-plotters Chris Claremont and John Byrne (assisted by Terry Austin on inks and a huge acknowledgement to the overlooked Tom Orzechowski and his lettering) have written such an engaging tale that you can jump in anywhere and enjoy the story. The best thing is that they were not consciously setting out to write a "saga" and therefore, they weren't pressured to create something that would sell in the trade paperbacks twenty years on. It's just far and away a story with a punch: a gut wrenching finale and some of the most beautiful artwork of the era.
This latest edition of the trade spruces up the artwork (no more dot matrix colors) and includes (for the first time) the much needed cover gallery, which was absent from previous printings. The art and story have hold up so well that almost a quarter of a century later it still stands as one of the best comic stories of all time.
