That art is gorgeous

I like that Marvel is putting out a lot of solo books instead of team books. What I don't like it all the books are 3.99. WTF Marvel??? Atleast DC and Image books are mostly 2.99$.

Did she just let that Pirate dude die or did his armour protect him?

Oh my god that looks stunning.

Tempted to check out the first issue mainly because it's a bit different and I don't recall Storm ever having an ongoing before (that I know of). I usually pick up the variant covers but is it just me, or is Marvel on a Skottie Young kick lately? I like his stuff, but I'd like to see some variants by other artists from time to time. Though that Young variant of Storm is rather nice looking.

May grab the 1st at least

totally unnecessary.

Posted by The Stegman

Looks pretty. But I really can't afford another ongoing unless it REALLY grabs my attention.

@tommythehitman: in the very least you can see he got shot in the a$$. and surely the tank lands on some of them, but hey they're bad guys. oh and i call bulls%it. the winds are strong enough to lift a tank but not blow away small wood houses?!

firstly lighting gave barry abs of steel. secondly, lightning gave shazam a ping pong table. now they give storm clothes. is there anything lightning can't give? a good transformers movie.

Wow! So excited for this! I genuinely, cannot believe that such an amazingly diverse character has never had her own solo series before. Bitches better buy this amazing looking book!

Can we get a Thor appearance? I actually liked when they were dating.

Posted by consafo80

I'll definitely give this go. I'm a Storm fan and like what I've read by Greg Pak. Art looks good too.

Posted by medulaoblaganda

Am excited for storm solo series.

Posted by fables87

First I wanted it for Storm, now I want this for that art.

It has very shocking results.

Storm is a decent character but Pak is one of my favorite current writers. Just might have to give this a go.

Posted by Figgs216

This art looks so goood.

Posted by Spideysense44

Trynna decide if I should pick this up or not, guess I'm going to wait for a worded preview

Posted by The Impersonator

The art looks great. But I wonder how long will Storm keeps up in the air.

Posted by The Average Bear

Now that is some amazing art

Bout time Storm got a solo book. Marvel is really putting their female characters up front at the moment. DC wants to know what took so long?

Posted by Erik

I predict that it will go 8 - 10 issues.

Posted by Figgs216

@erik: That's what I'm been wondering how long will Cyclops, Magneto, Nightcrawler and Storm last. I hope they last long just to show that Wolverine isn't the only X-Man to hold his own book.

Edited by Teerack

I wonder if with a solo book a writer will actually be able to make Storm more then the close minded self important person she currently is. It would be damn impressive since she has like 50 years of stubbornness to support her lack of character depth. I really hope Pak is able to do something for her.

I'm not a fan of the colorist. All the pages have really muted colors for no reason and it makes it less exiting then if the pages popped with more color.

Posted by KingWillie

Beautiful art.

Posted by ShadowPro
Posted by Dernman

I have zero interest in her as a solo character. That's not a bad thing.

Posted by Roddy010

Haters gonna hate but I'm happy to see more people willing to give the book a try than pre-bashing it.

Posted by RedLantern23

All the Storm fanboys on the vine should be happy. I'll pass though.

Posted by johnny_blaze

A woman of color with her own series. That's rare. I will be supporting.

Edited by imredjimmy

I haven't read anything by Pak but the art is gorgeous. I do feel like Storm has a character has been lacking recently. She's gotten more annoying and bitchy then before. I'm hoping this series will rectify that or at least justify it in a better way. If Wolverine is really dying soon, she'll become the head of the Jean Grey school and is therefore sort of the leader of the X-Men. This solo book is deserved.

So far, I like what I see, but I fear a meh story.

Storm is an awesome character, but she's very powerful and can be quite difficult to handle in a good story.

I mean, Lightning ? Control of the wind ? She's potentially almost as powerful as magneto and it's difficult to manage a good opposition without too much ass pulling from the writers.

I will be looking forward for this series, tough.

Posted by HolySerpent

@i_dont_like_comics: yeah I don't how how storm was able chage clothes. At least with Shazam you can argue its magic

Posted by i_dont_like_comics

@johnny_blaze: yeah. because storm or any other black woman doesn't get her own book because she's black. nailed it, buddy.

Posted by Perfect 10

@i_dont_like_comics: its an old talent of hers she's used since her debut, they just havent shown her using it in a few years. it has to do with manipulating the unstable molecules in her costume to change them

Posted by Perfect 10
