Definitely the best of the Giant Size X-Men Specials. Dauterman's art is next level and Hickman uses a really fun roster of characters.

Giant-Size X-Men: Storm #1

By: Jonathan Hickman, Russell Dauterman
Released: Sep 16, 2020

In GIANT-SIZE X-MEN: JEAN GREY & EMMA FROST, Hickman and Dauterman took Jean and Emma into Storm's mind to learn what had happened to her. Now they take the X-Men's resident goddess to the far end of the world to save herself!

I originally picked up Hellions because of Psylocke and Havok with an "I'll give it a try" attitude, but DAMN - four issues later, and I'm hooked. The art and the story have been consistently on point. Any creative team that can actually make me be interested in 1980's "throwaway" villains like Nanny and Orphan-Maker are masters of their craft. Hats off to Zeb Wells, Stephen Segovia, and crew.

A near perfect ending to the Hellions’ introduction arc. The key story elements were neatly dealt with and the overall arc felt satisfactorily completed (i.e. no irritating loose ends).

I was a bit shocked by what happened to Maddie, but it made sense. Zeb Wells did “right” by her. He honored her complexity and made me sympathize with her pain.

Zeb Wells’ storytelling more

What happened to this series? I really don't like what Percy is doing with Beast. His public humiliation of Colossus is a weird scene that just felt off to me. Followed by that laughable moment where Logan goes all feral and scares off a few dozen mutants (including Storm, Nightcrawler, Psylocke, Cable and at least three of the Stepford Cuckoos). Not sure I'm gonna stick with this series much long more

This is a continuation from Ben Percy's Wolverine series. I don't read that book so the intro was kinda jarring. I feel like there's been a sameness to this title from issue to issue that is starting to get a little stale at this point. How many times have invaders on Krakoa slipped under X-Force's radar now?

This issue was pretty good until it just...wasn't. So I guess Beast is sliding into full-on super-villain mode (or Dark Beast I guess). And I'm not sure how I feel about Logan and Jean actually being a thing. Kind of a weird issue of X-Force.

I liked how this was set up like an X-Men horror movie. Fun issue all around; though I feel like calling it 'Nightcrawler' is a bit of a misnomer. Could've easily been called 'Giant-Size X-Men: Cypher'. That might've fit better. Also: I always enjoy Alan Davis' art (that was a nice plus)!

I love Rachel so mostly I wanted to check this out for her character. That and I thought the premise sounded cool. Objectively I don't think this was a bad first issue; it just didn't grab me. The rest of the team didn't seem very interesting and I don't think they'll be likable enough for me to become invested. Doubt I'll be picking up the next one. Not awful but just not for me.
