During New York Comic Con, journalist and author Ta-Nehisi Coates hinted that a new standalone series focusing on the X-Man Storm might be in the works with artist Jen Bartel. Earlier today, that news was apparently confirmed by reporter Dawn Fallik for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Subsequently, Coates retweeted Fallik, and added “Bright Lady” — referencing Storm’s famous invocation.

Bartel also retweeted Fallik, seemingly affirming the report.

Reports that a Storm solo book might be in the works began floating around NYCC last Friday, when Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso didn’t rule out the possibility during a Q&A.
A longstanding member and occasional leader of the X-Men, Storm has starred in three different comic series, but only recently got her first and only standalone courtesy of Greg Pak and Victor Ibáñez, which ran for 11 issues from 2014-2015. Ororo Munroe has been making appearances in Coates’ first Marvel series, Black Panther, where she has been attempting to mend the relationship with her former husband, T’Challa. She could also be seen fighting alongside him in the short-lived Black Panther and The Crew series.
Jen Bartel’s artwork can be most recently seen on an issue cover of Marvel’s America series, as well as Jem and the Holograms.
No word on a release window for Storm’s standalone series has been announced yet.
