It's beautiful! I loved how she just strutted up from her motorbike and ended the fight in seconds!:D

Oh My God is right! All of the images with Betsy are simply wonderful! I like the articulation of her legs on the bike. It is very sensual and strong at the same time. Another positive is the amount of detail and thoroughness placed into the composition of the art. Betsy was certainly long overdue for this miniseries. Now she just needs a recurring X-Men role in Wolverine and the X-Men, and I can die a happy man!

Furthermore, I like that the buttefly effect is back in vogue. It shows a stronger connection to Betsy's English days in the Aussie outback.

It's good to see that Betsy and Dazzler are reasserting their friendship again!

Probably reading too much into this but do you think the reason the butterfly is so thin is because her current low levels? British had a full Butterfly flying around with her, When she went ninja it went jagged and now its very thin. Be cool if that was actually intentional.

Nah I think its because the thin butterfly is more stylish. This scene reminds me a lot of Psylocke in WATXM:D

WOW! just simply amazing! YAY the butterfly!! Get this artist on Uncanny NOW!!

Yay Betts and Alison together!!

PoP said...

i like the coloring. her hair is more lavender and her suit is more black/pink instead of blue/red than most times i see her. and i love how she's with her bff dazzler!

centurion said...

@PoP: I agree. I like the Betsy and Alison interaction. We saw indications that the writers wish to develop a friendship between them in Uncanny X-Men several months ago.

@Anonymous 4:55 P.M. Good point. Maybe the artists are trying to give the buttefly a modern, streamlined look. This mini is an opportunity for Betsy to ascend back to her status as a high level telepath.

Everything just works in those 2 pix. They're EXQUISITE, lol!! I'm def loving the Betsy/Alison friendship too. I can't wait to get a copy next month.

Oh.. My.. God!!! Love love love those previews..
Loving the Butterfly Effect.. it's the same design as the WATXM one.
She simply use telepathy to beat that villain and shows those New X-Men kids what's an X-Man really is.. She's so damn Fierce and Fabulous!!!! Can't wait!!

Amazing!

It's like Psylocke is back with a vengance. Those two pages give her back her bad ass telepath persona that was copied by Emma. And on that bike, she looks much more tough than Emma, and Betsy's only cold when she wants to be,

FSaker said...

Wow, that's amazing! The art is very beautiful, and it's great to see Betsy kicking some ass alongside Dazzler! And not related to Psylocke, but it's also great that finally some writer remembered that DUST still lives with the X-Men (I think she hasn't appeared with them for a long time... was Soraya even shown in Utopia??).

To make things perfect, Yost and Tolibao just need to add a "X" to her uniform to remind us all that she's still a x-woman, not a random ninja gal. It could be like in this picture: http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/0/6754/936119-ff6987e924cb3047c568dfb2f31e3742_super.jpg

centurion said...

@FSaker - Hey. This is certainly a good time for Psylocke fans. The X should be removed from the motorcycle and put on Psylocke's waist.

PsySpears said...

Eeek LOVES it :)
Fierce

Chris said...

Dude this looks so badass. Im so giddy right now. The art is awesome. and the writing will be to. I hope it sells well so we can get so much more

centurion said...

@Chris: It would be a dream for there to be an expanded series from the initial Psylocke miniseries!

Sky said...

I'm liking the art work a bit more now that there's color & shadow to it.
It's very Peter Chung albeit a tad softer.
