    This was a strong start to the dark timeline this event is exploring. Action, adventure, tragedy and love exist here in perfect balance. It's going to be difficult to wait for issue two. Read Full Review

    Overall, Storm and the Brotherhood of Mutants #1 is an excellent debut which shows what happens when everything goes wrong. The story by Ewing is a class in world building. The art by the creative team is wonderful. Altogether, a great story that shows our heroes when they have their backs against the wall. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 1, 2023

    Storm & the Brotherhood of Mutants #1 is an excellent kick-off. The issue drops a lot on readers, but it never feels that way. Its a killer story throughout, full of action, engaging plots, and terrific art. If this is what Sins of Sinister is going to be like, its a classic in the making. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Feb 8, 2023

    Storm & The Brotherhood of Mutants #1 was a futuristic, semi-apocalyptic mutant story with some clever twists and fast-paced plot threads that will keep readers on their toes. X-fans will see that this issue has a ton of moving pieces and may get a bit too overwhelming through the first read. I highly recommend giving this issue a couple of looks before you judge it. However, I dont want to reread an issue multiple times to totally understand whats happening either. I want to reread for fun and not for clarity. Nevertheless, the potential is here for quite a fascinating story and a killer opening to this series. However, for anyone who may not like the futuristic, time-bending tales, this might not be your cup of Darjeeling.

    This is, in fact, the second chapter of a miniseries in much the same way that Powers of X #1 was the second chapter of its own. Once readers understand that positioning, this is an easy issue to enjoy as it frames a very promising saga ahead. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 8, 2023

    Storm & the Brotherhood of Mutants #1 is a good piece of the puzzle overall. While it doesn't totally stand on its own, the issue presents an event that's not quite as straightforward as a bad guy and those fighting against him. It adds yet another layer to the already complicated mess that was revealed in Sins of Sinister #1. As a part of the overall narrative, it's a solid addition. Read Full Review

    On paper, Storm and the Brotherhood of Mutants #1 is an excellent idea, but there aren't enough pages to clear up some of the confusing sections. Read Full Review
