I like this actually ! Showing that Psylocke can remain standing against the Shadow King which makes sense ! She's the one who stopped him before and she'll do it again. I know this'll end the Shadow King somehow so I am glad the ninja with an addict to kill and hasn't been in many comics and arts since Uncanny X-Men 2016 gets to end this ! Her art is also cool in this one !

The art in this issue was a mess to me but mostly appreciated too. I like her art here and in issue 3 when Shadow King was trying to get Logan.

Marvel promised only the best artists drawing Astonishing X-men.
So disappointing this shit art on the climax of the story.

LOL! Based on that Todd Nauck post below, I want him! Sort of reminds me of Art Adams!

I personally think the art looks amazing. It reminds me of the late 90s art which I LOVE.

Looks good to a degree. But Love Psylocke finally getting some props.

At this point, I would have figured Psylocke to know more about Farouk than Xavier.

Land's cover art makes me laugh and then sigh. Dude just keeps getting worse somehow.

Thanks to that, I can better appreciate the interior work. It's good.

Shadow King reminds me of Mojo.

When he is defeated his body will be wisked away by Spiral.

Who from the 90s artists do you think cover art looks like? It look lazy like Rob Liefield so I see what you mean.

I miss the Rick Remender uncanny x force days, when he gave Bet's a heart beat reminder of who he is/was and the potential she really has.

Yup like that giant butterfly she used on dark angel.

X-Position - Alilotron used their indomitable will to ask, “With her time in Astonishing X-Men coming to an end, can we expect to see Psylocke on a new team or book soon?” Dementia5, asked “[Marvel Editor-in-Chief] C.B. [Cebulski] has stated on Twitter that Jubilee will have a role in the X-titles going forward. I know you can’t spill on where and when, as that’s too spoilery, but could you at least give a cryptic hint?” Finally, Wind Rider asks, “With Jean and Kitty getting some time in the leadership seat are there any upcoming plans for a new and more critical role for Storm in the X-Verse?”

White: All three are in Mystery in Madripoor… and an upcoming as-yet-unannounced book!
