    Weekly Comic Book Review - Matt Sargeson Mar 4, 2013

    As unhappy as I've been with Ultimate Comics X-Men of late, this issue almost makes up for the sins of the past. Tightly paced, passionately scripted, beautifully illustrated, it's an unfaltering recap of the events of the last 12 months told from a compelling alternative view point. It's also one of the best 'jumping on point' comics I've read in a while. Here's hoping Wood has another couple of stand-alone stories waiting for us before we get back to the exhaustive pessimism of Kitty Pryde's Utopia. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Feb 27, 2013

    Even though this issue doesn't move along the overall story, it's still brilliant. I love what Brian Wood is doing with this book and these characters. This is a great jumping on point for new readers, and Storm fans will have a great time reading this, since it's all about her journey. The art is great as always, and I loved the cover of the issue. I wasn't too keen on the new inker, and fans of this book may find some of the story here repetitious.Overall, I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Feb 27, 2013

    Barberi opens the book with a scene that not only gives an exciting dose of action, but symbolically shows the relationship between Storm and Colossus. He really has his work cut out for him after that, with many pages detailing a quiet escape into the woods. He depicts sleepless nights and desolate landscapes in a way that will make you weary just flipping through the pages. This one-off flashback puts a much-wanted spotlight on everyone's favorite mohawked mutant, and now we can see just why she's a rebel with a cause. Read Full Review
