    But Why Tho? - CJ Sep 16, 2020

    Giant-Size X-Men: Storm #1 is the perfect standalone tale for one of Marvel's fan-favorite mutants, with top-notch characterization and artwork. I'm glad that Storm got the spotlight in this tale, and that it managed to be a standalone tale that helps advance the grand narrative ofDawn of X.Fans of the X-Men, and Storm in particular, will definitely want to pick this one-shot up.

    From cover to cover, this is a truly glorious book and while there is a little bit of cliche in some of Storm's thoughts about life and its meaning, this book is so beautiful we'll just look past it. It's wonderful. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 16, 2020

    Giant Size X-Men: Storm #1 ties up a lot of plot threads in a satisfying manner. Hickman lays out some clues to what might come next for the World, and it'll be fun to see where he takes the whole thing. Russell Dauterman's art makes the whole thing pop, with Matthew Wilson's colors giving the pencils the flair they need. All in all, Giant Size X-Men: Storm #1 is a wonderful ride. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 16, 2020

    Giant-Size X-Men: Storm has it all, from action to crazy science fiction concepts we've come to adore from Hickman, to deeply meaningful character beats. In the opening alone, we get to see Emma and Jean spar a bit, reminding us they aren't the best of friends and have a history. Above all else, Giant-Size X-Men has been a series about layering visuals in an emphatic way, but the story and character writing has been excellent too. In what can appear to be a simple scene or simple visual, there is so much more behind it, be it the history or the subtext. Giant-Size X-Men is a delight of the mind, the eye, and the imagination.
