|Storm #6 cover by Stephanie Hans|
Storm #6 picks up straight after the events of Yukio's betrayal of Storm's trust and the battle of the clans in Vegas.
Storm is indignant about the events we saw in the previous issue, and is heading home aboard a private charter plane. The mix of passengers on board is used to great effect by writer Greg Pak, each playing a role in the drama of the current issue. Between a medical courier, a politician, and a snobby upper-class women who has an anti-mutant attitude, Pak has an eclectic mix of support characters in this issue. It is great to see each used in a meaningful way here and from the cliff hanger ending in the next issue.
Pak's writing has been of a high class, consistently throughout this series. Issue #6, however, is an issue that's in transition. Pak is bridging the first part of the series, which has dealt with various figures from Storm's past, with a forward looking story in this issue, building up on a plot that will span multiple issues.

Combining the artistic differences in this issue with the story's transitional feeling means that Storm #6 does feel like an in-between issue in the series. Despite this, the issue has a nice flow and set action piece, which show cases Storm's increasing confidence with her powers. We have a good set upon this issue, which looks to be rounded off in the next.
