Writer Christopher Yost (Red Robin, X-Force, New X-Men) and penciler Harvey Tolibao (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Anita Blake) are currently telling a fun, action-packed tale of the X-Men’s most cunning and sexy character; Betsy Braddock, a.k.a Psylocke. The purple-haired ninja has traveled to Japan to bury her original body once and for all, but of course nothing is ever that easy. Accompanied by Wolverine, who makes a quick exit to attend business of his own, Betsy is attacked by a large group of ninja who belong to The Hand and finds herself embarking upon a mission that she must see to its end. Check out this preview of Psylocke #2:









Psylocke #1 was a solid read, and I’d expect no less from #2. Yost provides for a well written story that incorporates events in Matt Fractions current run on Uncanny X-Men, which doesn’t go unappreciated. It’s possible that Yost may be attempting to clear up what is quite possibly the most mis-understood and head-scratching factoid in X-history; what happened with the bodies of Psylocke and Kwannon. The art by Harvey Tolibao is nothing short of spectacular; his lines are clean and he provides the right feel for an X-book. It would be great to see him become a regular on an ongoing X-title at some point in the future. The coloring is also bright and vibrant, complimenting Tolibao’s work nicely. Psylocke is a mini-series that will satisfy the casual and hardcore X-fan alike, and dedicated followers of Betsy Braddock may need to have a new pair of underoos close by after giving it a read.
