Great retrospective! Congratulations!

Wow, Psylocke had quite a busy year in 2011, right? That's great! Let's hope 2012 is an even better year for her!

Though I look at that Schism #2 picture and keep wondering why she went to a snowy (and presumably very cold) place wearing just her bathing suit... not a very wise decision, Betsy....

JJ.Froud said...

Always look forward to this! Well done!!

Our girl has had a busy year. Lets hope 2012 will be even grander, and with what's in store in UXF for Otherworld, I think she will.
