    it was difficult to imagine how X-Men: Red could top itself so quickly, but it does so in X-Men: Red #10 before promising to do it again very soon. Arrako could not be in better hands.

    Comic Watch

    Aside from one (admittedly persnickety) stumble, this story galloped across the finish line, catapulting readers into place for the upcoming Sins of Sinister event. I am hotly anticipating Storm and the Brotherhood of Mutants and I cannot wait to see where Ewing takes it.

    AIPT

    X-Men: Red #10 pays off a number of running plots from this and other Ewing written series in fittingly epic fashion. A must-read for Storm fans.

    COMICON

    X-Men Red #10 is a fantastic entry in what continues to be one of Marvel's best comic book series right now. Al Ewing, Stefano Caselli, and Jacopo Camagni did an excellent job battling the battle of Omega-level mutants in Storm vs Vulcan with the endgame of Abigail Brand's plot. The pacing for everything was on point as you were kept engage in everything going on in X-Men Red #10. Hopefully we don't have to wait to long before getting back to the implications of how things end in this issue.

    Major Spoilers

    X-Men Red has felt a bit rocky for a few issues after the A.X.E. event but has managed to wrap up major story plots in a dramatic conclusion. Storm and the mutants of Arakko prove to be engaging characters that deserve to have stories written about them.

    You Don't Read Comics

    X-Men Red #10 is yet another great issue. The team does what they always do, presenting an awesome story. It’s a little emotionally vapid, but it’s still a fun read.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    X-Men Red #10 concludes the storyline with the treacherous Abigail Brand and her plots for the cosmos, but the comic is sadly underwhelming. Despite the artwork by Stefano Caselli and Federico Blee’s colors, the fight between Storm and Vulcan isn’t that great. It doesn’t help that previous issues have done the legwork to undercut Vulcan as a genuinely threatening villain and real challenge to Storm. As a result, there’s no stakes or investment to this fight which has a foregone conclusion before it even starts. The story with Abigail Brand wraps up a little too quickly and her fate is left too uncertain, so hopefully another story will expand on what happens to her next.

About the Author: Al Ewing

Al Ewing (/ˈjuːɪŋ/) is a British comics writer who has mainly worked in the small press and for 2000 AD and Marvel Comics.

Career

Al Ewing began his career writing stories in the four-page Future Shocks format for 2000 AD and moved on to regular stints on Judge Dredd (2008–2015), for which his 2010 story “Doctor What?” marked Brendan McCarthy’s return to 2000 AD. They later worked together on a new series entitled The Zaucer of Zilk. Ewing worked on Damnation Station and Zombo, the latter illustrated by Henry Flint, which was collected in trade paperback in 2010.

Ewing has also contributed to Solar Wind, FutureQuake, and The End Is Nigh. He is responsible for the mobile comic Murderdrome, created with P. J. Holden.

In May 2007, Ewing created the comedy blog “The Diary of Ralph Dibney”, writing as the titular DC Comics superhero (also known as Elongated Man), Dibney’s therapist, or as the even more obscure DC Hero Richard Dragon, as they react to the events of each week’s issue of the comic book 52.

Breaking into American comic books, Ewing was also picked by Garth Ennis to provide a six-issue arc on Jennifer Blood, published by Dynamite Entertainment, and a spin-off series The Ninjettes.

His debut prose novel Pax Britannia: El Sombra, published by Abaddon Books in 2007, features a mysterious Mexican hero fighting back against the menace of steam-powered Nazis. It is set in the same Steampunk alternate history as the other novels from the Pax Britannia series. Three other novels have been published since, with a fifth on the way.

Ewing wrote Mighty Avengers and Loki: Agent of Asgard for Marvel Comics and co-wrote the first year of the Eleventh Doctor Doctor Who title with Rob Williams for Titan Comics.

Ewing has since written New Avengers, U.S.Avengers, Ultimates, Rocket, Royals, and The Immortal Hulk, all for Marvel. The Immortal Hulk was a nominee for the 2019 Eisner Award in the “Best Continuing Series” category, and had earned publisher Marvel Comics a Diamond Gem Award the previous year as “Best New Comic Book Series.”

In 2021, Ewing won the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book at the 32nd GLAAD Media Awards for his work on Empyre and received an additional nomination in 2021 and one in 2022 for Guardians of the Galaxy. In June 2021, it was announced that Ewing would serve as co-writer of Venom alongside Ram V, with Bryan Hitch serving as artist.

Personal life

At the end of Pride Month 2021, Ewing came out as bisexual.
