The podcast of the superfun Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men panel I did at the Rose City Comic Con has gone live! Check it out here!
Had a blast on that panel. Realized I’ve written a heck of a lot of X-Books over the years — X-Men Phoenix Endsong, X-Men Phoenix Warsong, Magneto Testament, Astonishing X-Men, X-Treme X-Men, Storm… even Alpha Flight with Fred Van Lente, which is kind of X-Adjacent. And we talked about a ton of those books! Especially Magneto and X-Treme X-Men.
Jay and Miles are very, very funny and the audience was incredible. Enjoy!

Lucas Siegel has posted a review of “X-Men: Phoenix – Warsong” miniseries at Newsarama.com. Here’s an excerpt:
I hope Greg Pak has more in store for these and other team oriented characters. He seems to merge the two story telling styles better than most writers out there today, something Iâ€™ve also enjoyed about his work with that one big green guy. Bottom line- this story is worth the read. It builds on the characters of Emma Frost and the Stepford Cuckoos in a big way, and shows the latest status quo for The Phoenix. Itâ€™s a different style of story telling than weâ€™re getting out of a lot of super-hero books, as well, and thatâ€™s refreshing. Iâ€™ll give this book a solid 800 out of 1000 Stepford Cuckoos. Thereâ€™re only 3, you say? Read the book.

FanboyPlanet.com has posted rave reviews of Greg Pak’s “Incredible Hulk” #103 and “X-Men: Phoenix – Warsong” #5, both of which hit comic book stores today. Here’s a taste:
Incredible Hulk #103: … Pak is the guy. In all this time, we’ve never really questioned the status quo of the Bruce/Hulk dynamic because everything was so good. Then in just a couple of panels Pak reveals it and â€¦it’s still just so good. Despite this storyline putting an acceptable epilogue on the Hulk’s saga, Pak even naturally spins into World War Hulk. Suddenly, I can’t wait.
Phoenix Warsong #5: More Paktastic goodness, closing one book on Grant Morrison’s X-Men run while planting seeds for more storytelling. Though the artwork is a little uneven, this book never lets up, and never talks down to the readers. It’s not for the casual reader, but it is tremendously rewarding for long-time fans.
Two comics written by Greg Pak hit comic book stores today.

Reviewing for SilverBulletComics.com, Steven Forbes lauds “X-Men: Phoenix – Warsong” #4, written by Greg Pak with pencils by Tyler Kirkham. An excerpt:
Iâ€™m not going to blow it for anyone coming in late to the series, but it gives added depth to one of the current X-Men, and I canâ€™t wait for the other X-books to catch up to this series. Iâ€™m very interested to see how it plays out. Top notch writing, here, and very interesting ideas.

FanboyPlanet.com has posted a great review of “X-Men: Phoenix – Warsong” #3. The book is written by Greg Pak with pencils by Tyler Kirkham. Here’s an excerpt from the review:
If it’s better than it should be, it’s because Pak is a subtly humanistic writer, picking up the threads of Grant Morrison’s work on New X-Men and somehow bringing it all back down to a human level.
