This Storm comic seems to rely on other events surrounding it, and certainly expects you to be up to speed on who everyone is -- at least in the first issue. It actually gets a bit more explanatory later on in the volume, which confused and then began to ignore me.

Since my exposure to X-men previously has just been brief crossovers with other comics and a huge childhood obsession with an animated TV series, it's fair to say I come into this pretty new. I liked the Storm portrayed here: struggling with past bad decisions, trying to feel her way into being a true leader, and not completely sanitised. She chooses not to kill at several points, but that's because she knows what it's like to use lethal force; it's a real choice, not just idealism.

All in all, I can't rate this that highly because there's so little here, but I think there's a current solo Storm comic, and I'm thinking of picking that up. There isn't enough here to let Storm shine, and the comic seems pretty dated in the way it tells its story now, but it does hint at compelling and interesting aspects of Storm's character. ( )

Adequate story and what must be very early art from Terry Dodson - a little rough here, a little cartoony there but not unpleasantly so. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0785185011, Paperback)

Long ago, Storm won leadership of the underground mutant community known as the Morlocks. But her reign was a distant one, and Storm's neglected subjects grew increasingly embittered. Ultimately, the mad Mikhail Rasputin swept the Morlocks away into another dimension - a harsh dimension where time ran much faster than normal. There, the next generation of Morlock children came of age, hard and cold and bitter. They returned as a terrorist unit called Gene Nation, and Storm nearly had to slay their leader to defeat them. Disturbed by her actions, haunted by the guilt of failing the Morlocks, Storm seeks a new balance in her life. But when she is abducted to Mikhail's brutal dimension, can Storm prevail against the living reminders of her failure? Or will the sins of her past drag her down?
