Tazirai said...

The artist must have missed the memo. Fix it lol.

Can we please be done with her and Angel and Fandumbex after this?

X-Man said...

I like her and Warren lol.

brad said...

There were many more x-book solicits than these for December! X-23, Shatterstar, Iceman, Dead Man Logan, Deadpool.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

Is that 616 Warren? He looks like a hipster.

Eric Ton said...

No, this is referring to the Age of Apocalypse version. Also, will there be any future post for artwork by famous comic book artist?

CmX said...

I don't think that's AoA Warren, I think that's supposed to be Warren as a Horseman of Salvation.

Jeferson Santos said...

I hope that be Kwannon pretending to be Betsy in this cover. Let's Betsy in her original body, sil vous plait

CmX said...

Jeferson, I think it's an error on the artist's part. Regardless editors approve the artwork before it's inked/colored, so I'm guessing they didn't have time to fix it since these issues are being churned out pretty quickly.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

@CmX, yeah. I dodn't think its AOA either. Anyway, all these artists need to get the memo... Mohawks are all played out. No matter how cool Mohawk 'Ro was, tha style has no place in 2018! :-)

FSaker said...

Uh... I didn't get what's the problem with the cover. I mean, I don't think Betsy look Asian in it - not the Betsy fighting Mohawk-Angel, at least. The Betsy in the background does because that's how she looked like when they started dating (same reason why Not-Mohawk-Warren's skin is blue in it). As for the hair color, while it is darker than her current color, maybe we can consider it a shadowing effect.

Really, I think it's a nice cover. And the solicitation for UXM's first arc looks very promising.

I'm surprised X-Men Red will still be around by then, though, especially considering basically all the X-Men on it will also be heavily featured on UXM.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

@FSaker, I agree. Neither of the Bestys in the cover look Asian. I'm actually more concerned with her ass being out in the background. LOL. However, I know people don't mind the thong, so I'm gonna stop now.

CmX said...

She's not drawn with Asian features, but she's obviously drawn as post-body swap Psylocke here. I mean, she looks exactly the same on the background of the cover.

Really, they just need to color her hair lavender and it'll be fine hahah Should be an easy fix.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

@CmX, kinda like how she was drawn in every flashback and current scene of her mini. LOL.

CmX said...

Rahsaan, let's be real she was hardly ever drawn with Asian features lol Here and there sure but not really.

Anonymous said...

Completely disagree - Mohawks have and will always have space in any era...
And yes she does not have Asian features in that cover... But then again apart from Lee and Davis she never had.

FSaker said...

"Completely disagree - Mohawks have and will always have space in any era..."

I agree. However, not everyone looks good with a mohawk. Storm looks fantastic every time she has a mohawk haircut. Daken looks good with a mohawk.

Warren does NOT look good with a mohawk. And I hope this is an alternate-Earth Warren or something like that; the poor (rich) guy is ALWAYS messed up with all these changes... his background is so messy that it makes Betsy's look perfectly normal in comparison.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

Now, Anonymous and FSaker, if mohawks have a place always and forever, can we also bring back Rachel's mullet? LOL.

Vigmed said...

It's too much hair. You can't have both a mowhawk and a really long ponytail that is that thick of hair.

My boy supposed to be avian, not equine.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

@Vigmed, you just made me flatline.
