    All-in-all, get your hands on this if you can. If you are looking for a story that plays out more in the characters minds then with their fists then you will really enjoy this read. And if youre looking for a WAM! POW! action issue, dont be deterred as there is still something in it for you too. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of competition for your comic dollar currently, even if you only consider X-Men comics. I had numerous problems with this particular issue, but most of that had to do with the setup leading to the main storyline. Not much is known about the main plot yet, except for the bad guy, so it's not like there's no potential in this series. At this point though, I can only recommend this series for Storm and/or Black Panther fans, since it appears it'll have it's most last effects on them and not the X-Men. Everyone else should consider picking up the trade if the story improves next issue. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, the importance of the series really relies on whether it puts Storm firmly back in the mutant-verse or not. If it does, then at least there'll be some point to the exercise. If not, it's doomed to be another of Storm's instantly-sidelined and forgettable miniseries like many before it. Despite attempts to raise the character's profile in recent years, all Marvel have managed to do of late is show that no writer they've got is especially sure what stories to tell with her. It'll keep the Storm fans happy, but if that's not your thing, there's little here for you. Read Full Review
