X-Men's Deadliest Ninja Gets Spotlighted In Free Psylocke Sketchbook

Are you looking forward to her mini-series?

I've always been a fan of Psylocke.  I first discovered her in a Captain Britain trade.  Then we saw her join the X-Men.  When she was changed into a ninja assassin, I was a little blown away.  I never really thought it would stick.  All these years later and she's still kicking butt, ninja style.
 
As you may have heard, Psylocke is getting her own mini-series written by Christopher Yost with art by Harvey Tolibao (and cover by David Finch).  To help celebrate this event, Marvel is offering the chance to check out some behind the scenes material with a Psylocke Sketchbook.  You can view it through Marvel Digital Comic Unlimited by clicking HERE.  Both Yost and Tolibao offer commentary on never before seen sketches.  This is your chance to get a sneak peak into an explosive story of betrayal and revenge.
 
Marvel promises that the mini-series will "change the already significant role of Psylocke forever!"  Normally with a mini-series, I wouldn't necessarily believe that but with Chris Yost writing, I wouldn't be surprised if this were true.

The art looks great, I can't wait to see how it will looked like inked. And with Yost writing I'll be sure to pick this up.

I pray she gets  a new costume at the end of this mini. Dazzler got one, she should tell her BFF it's time for a change.

Agreed. I'm so tired of her thong/bathing suit outfit. Maybe something reminiscent of her pink costume? Or hell even her Exiles costume.

Beautiful. Nice to know we will get some British Betts flashbacks as well.

Beauty, Skill. That's what i wanna see in this series!Psylocke  is my very favourite super heroine! 
I've been a fan since 1994.. 15 years now. Even got a tattoo! 
 
I think this one will be awesome. Chris will make a great job, for sure!

Nice backside!

I guess this is a point James Robinson could have made about his threesome in Cry For Freedom. A sub population of comic book fans were outraged over Hal Jordan embarrassed by Ollie over sleeping with a couple super heroes...yet, how many female heroines don't wear any pants?!?!?!?!?!
 
I love our British/Asian looking Psylocke but she's a loooooong ways from Alan Moore's depiction or even Claremont's when she wore the pink outfit. Betsy always wanted to be tougher but her personality isn't remeniscent at all of this version.

I hate the cover, specifically because it's so heavily focused on her ass. It's been 20 years, lets move on.

I am so buying this series and nothing will stop me!

She needs her own movie! Megan Fox would be a shoe in to play the roll.

Posted by The Phoenix Child

I would rather that Kelly Hu plays Psylocke or Tia Carere if there will be a movie with an Asian version.
 
if it will be a british version... Rachel Weiz would look nice with a purple hair.

  I thought she had her original body back and wasn't Asian anymore anyway. Or is that completely wrong?

 She's still in the Asian body. Her original body got resurrected for like a second until Dazzler blew her face off.

I was one of Psylocke's biggest fan during the 1990's era ever since Marvel Comics decided to turn her into a Japanese Woman and left for dead the British Woman whom is her true identity, I think the return of her Japanese Woman version is Super Cool and in her very own comic book saga ultra cool. Oh yeah here's a picture of Psylocke's 1990's version hope you all like it

   I'll third that. That also explains why I prrobably forgot. I think I read through that arc as fast as humanly possible.
