|Storm #10 cover by Stephanie Hans|
On the whole, the stories from Storm have been a great experience. This is a solid solo X-Men series that has carried itself off with aplomb and certainty. It has a well-established voice in the main character and a direction that seems well planned and has been executed to a high standard.
Storm #10 has a charming opening page. It is a homecoming of sorts for the title character; we see Storm as she is set up for the culmination of the introspective examination that Greg Pak has led us on throughout the series this far.
The beginning of this issue also throws readers off guard when it comes time to throw out the hooks, build some suspense, and bring the story around at the conclusion for a neat cliffhanger. The storytelling devices are employed fluidly and with a confident sense of craftsmanship.
This confidence from the creative team has permeated the series and helps redefine Storm for a new audience. In many ways this series has defined Storm as a character. It has asserted all of the traits associated with her in the past and brought them together in a cohesive, modern manner, making this rendering of Storm definitive, particularly from the point of view of the art, which has been so fantastic.
