Wow! We only got to see four pages so far and Selene is already revived. Cool! I hope Madelyne is also successfully resurrected (and I wonder if she would still be evil, since Maddy used to be a good girl before being corrupted and becoming the Goblyn Queen. Her last appearance pre-Fraction even showed her soul/conscience bonding with Cyclops and Cable (of course, then Fraction plainly ignored it and made her evil again for no reason).

Dodson's cover with the Sisterhood is nice (especially when I realized the background is Arkea), and the variant cover with the X-Women is even nicer! This book slowed down after Battle of the Atom, but last issue was great and I'm confident that Wood will do a good job with the next issues of this arc!

I'm in love with the art - it's Kris Anka so of course I love it but the storyline needs to pick up more pace, I'm so over Arkea and Sublime and I'm actually meh to see yet another Maddy 'resurrection' just because she's uberpowerful and evil, the character needs to grow beyond that imo.

Psylocke herself have been bland so far - where's the fire? The passion? The warrior cry?
