I am definitely getting this one today! :) a friend of mine said that Storm has a connection to Dracula? and that it was hinted in this issue, Aside from Babs giving it a 6 out of 5, I wanna see that connection. Oh and Gambit is just the coolest X-man right now!

I loved this as well!! It answers so many questions about Storm's recent views on killing. And I LOVE Chris' artwork, he's one of my all time fav's. 5 out of 5.

Great review, Om picking this one up. 
 
How can anyone hate storm?

Sounds like this writer should be handling an X-Men monthly.  Or all the X-Men monthlies.

I just read this issue an hour before seeing this video. I must say I agree on most accounts. All of the characters are well-written ( which isn't that easy to do ). The art is great, I too like an artist that can really show facial expressions. The story itself is very well written, especially for a one-shot.
The only kind of minus I had with this story is that it's way more written around storm, and I sometimes had the feeling that Gambit was just kind of tagging along and not really doing anything. 
 
So I wouldn't have given it a 5/5 but definably a 4 or 4.5 /5 !
All in all; very good review and I mostly agree !

 I am not a Storm fan at all, but I enjoyed this issue quite a bit.  Emma's tan lines didn't hurt. ;)

I really do like some of the art that Chris has put out, but sometimes its too jumbled for me and i have NO clue what the hell is going on. But i am excited to read this b/c i have never felt any way about Storm or Gambit, so lets see if this changes my POV

Chris Bachalo is one of my favorites, as well. I loved his work in X-Men Supernovas.
 
I could always imagine Storm and Emma could be friends. I'm not talking about going out for drinks/sleepover friends. I more mean something more formal. A level of deep respect that neither would ever out right admit.

Love Chris Bachalo. Has been a long time favourite of mine, along with Humberto Ramos and Marc Silvetri.  
Loved his run on X-Men with Miket Carey writing. I know I may sound like a scratched record, but I would love to see Bachalo do another run on X-Men. Maybe this is a sign for good things to come. ;)

I am definitely going to be picking this up before work tomorrow.

I literally did not pick this up because of the Tie to Curse of the Mutants... but next time I go to the CB store I'll get it!

Same here.  I didn't realise it was Bachalo's art.  And the characterisation sounds bang on (for a change)... perhaps Chuck Kim should write Uncanny instead ;)

Agreed

Huh, I thought this was a relatively hum drum issue and I only picked it up for Bachalo's art.  I was a bit disappointed really.  We didn't get to see Gambit blow anything up, even after the mission went to hell, and a few of the pages didn't even look like they belonged in the final product, almost sketch quality.  Ah well, you can't please everyone.

always thought Mr. Chris Bachalo's art would improve... does anyone remember Generation X? 
backj in the day, i thought the art sucked!  but then i realized Mr. Bachalo was simply surrounded by bad inkers and colorists! 
i don't care if it's a One-Shot as long as he delivers \m/ ^_^ \m/ in a rocking way!

Posted by Aspenite

Chris rocks for sure!

Posted by B'Town

Babs you sold me... I'll pick this up.  The art is incredible.  And Emma?  Wow, hotter than ever.

Posted by Dex

I just picked up this issue.. It was great! Gambit and Storm together is magic.

Posted by AskaniSon295

Loved seeing Northstar and Dazzler  and Emma complaining about her suntan.

This is the one bright spot of the "Curse of the Mutants" run. I enjoyed the art and can't believe no mention of the best part (pic related) GO TEAM JACOB!

I like the facial expressions he draws, but I pretty much pass on the rest too.  Not my style.  At all.
Posted by Osiris1428

I like more realism meet comic bookish style like Lee,  Doug Braithwaite, ummm....yeah guys like that.
