In perhaps the quintessential "I can't believe no one did this sooner" moment in the brief history of the comic book/tumblr age, upcoming Uncanny X-Force
scribe Sam Humphries
has created "F Yeah Mohawk Storm,"
a tumblr page dedicated to Storm's famous coiffure from the Chris Claremont/Paul Smith era of Uncanny X-Men.
To the unmitigated delight of many (myself included), Humphries and series artist Ron Garney are bringing
the mohawk back in this month's Uncanny X-Force
#1. In November ComicsAlliance spoke with Humphries and artist Kris Anka
