Maybe 2.5. Yost and Neves are good storytellers, and the set-up — T'Challa possessed and turned against Storm — is solid. But the Shadow King, for all his vaunted power, is a third-tier villain at best, and the constant ruminations on Storm's place in the world didn't work for me. I suspect part of the problem, too, is that I'm reading it long after Storm and T'Challa split, so this loses a lot of oomph (a perennial problem reading older comics collections for the first time).

I feel like this book covered some of the same themes that the 1996 Storm miniseries I recently read tried to-but actually did it well. This was written over a decade later and Storm is living in a very different situation but it works-and I think the reason for that is cause of the stage of life that she's in. It's kind of hard not to notice that a lot of stuff I've read about Storm from the 90s on seems to either be about balancing being a leader and her personal life, or people challenging he ...more

I was expecting much more from this book. It's still great, as always, to read about Storm, but other than that, the story is pretty straightforward, you don't have time to get into and empathise with what she is feeling. It's a quick succession of decisions and flights, and it's all done. It seems too easy when you consider she is fighting one of the x-men's most powerful enemies. On the other hand, illustrations are good, and sometimes, marvellous. I might consider checking the book again with ...more

Storm was always my favorite X-Man as a kid, and I would be lying if I didn't say that I was disappointed by her lack of badassery in the films. It's good to see that she hasn't been forgotten, and has been recognized for the super-powerful Mutant she is. (Yes, I know how much of my nerd is showing here.)

There isn't much by way of depth or "deep" thoughts here, but it is still an interesting ride, and some decent art to boot. Every now and again, it's nice to step away from the more "serious" gr

I love Storm! This was my first reading of a Storm centered story arc and I thought it was great! I won't hide the fact that I love that this character is an African woman, who is a strong leader & warrior. Storm is someone my daughter can look up to, as well as my son! On another note the artwork was amazing! I really loved this style! I can't say enough about it! Overall an enjoyable read & I hope to check out some more stories that feature Storm!

I've loved X-Men since I was little. And Storm was always my favorite. I've been on an X-Men kick lately, and reread all my Storm graphic novels. And today I found this one.

I loved this one! It just might be my favorite. And as an added bonus, there are scenes with Storm and T'Challa in the back from older comics.

Decent combination of various threads to craft a story about identity, priorities and sacrifice. Storm is a complex character that deserves more solo stories. Perhaps one day she'll get her own movie.
I enjoyed the first four reads and artistic work until the last one done in 1990s... didn't like story and artwork was mediocre.

4.5 stars.

I've always loved all the Storm-centric stories that Marvel has produced over the years! Storm. A thief. An X-man. A wife. A queen. Can't get more complicated than that!

Well, drawings are excellent, story to, but Oh my god! A self pity! I can not believe that someone can blame herself for everything...

Only because of that I gave 4 stars.

Although I haven't got a clue what's been going on in the X-Men Universe I really enjoyed this one.

Bit boring, the story is slow and hard to get into. Quite a disappointment but there was some good art here and there. 3 stars.
