• The Fantomex Love Pentagram explodes!
• With the truth about their sordid past fully revealed, can Fantomex, Psylocke, and Cluster look each other in the eye?
• Every psychic ninja needs a vicious animal with no impulse control and a short temper to back her up...right?
• Puck! Man, does that guy love jerky. Especially buffalo and bison jerky, dipped in Canadian whiskey.
• Plus: a terrifying surprise villain from the X-past is definitely playing chess, not checkers, across Los Angeles.

Loving the story
LOVE the cover on this one, too!

but the interior art is getting worse and worse...
HelaGood - 7/27/2013, 9:16 AM
i especially hate the coloring... it's like something out of a Scoopy Doo children's book

I really want to love this book, and I enjoy the Psylocke arc for the most part...but I really think this book needs to get its act together. It needs a mission statement, and it needs its main roster to gel together properly, cus so far its just not happening.

Cable & XForce on the other hand came storming out of the gate, and hasn't stopped since the first issue. Great cast, great team dynamic, and a mission the reader can get behind.

Humphries, work harder on this, please. PS his Avengers AI #1 was really great!! first issue had most of the team together, and a clear and present danger to investigate. He writes a fantastic Pym, Vision and Victor Mancha.

The art is bad but the story is okay, it would be funny if deadpool popped in like, "No, she's mine!" lol

Liking the story and the cover but the interior is really craptastic. I don't know where Marvel is finding these guys but they need to stop. So many of their books are doing the same.

This looks like shit! Art is kind of sketchy and the storyline sounds hokey as hell!

fantomex needs movie love,hopefully the x-force movie he may show up.
HelaGood - 7/27/2013, 10:03 AM
@xcrementus - agreed!

i loved how this book started with storm, and puck, and spiral... and then it totally spiraled out of control into just a psylocke romantic novel. wtf?!?
KeefNCookies - 7/27/2013, 10:05 AM
Have not been enjoying this book. I agree with PeterDarker, there are way too many bad artists at Marvel.
HelaGood - 7/27/2013, 10:10 AM
another GREAT example of awesome covers and REAL PATHETIC interior art is Thunderbolts.
aRandomSinisterClone - 7/27/2013, 10:14 AM
that's some of the worst art ive ever seen someone paid to do.
A2ron - 7/27/2013, 11:04 AM
I don't read this but it sounds like Psylocke is a lesbian now, if so when did that happen and why does Marvel feel like they have to reveal shit like that. Plus the art is crap.
A2ron - 7/27/2013, 11:17 AM
If they include Psylocke in the X-Force movie I want her to be British and "straight".
sameoldthing - 7/27/2013, 11:47 AM
They should put Psylocke in X-Force because she's got cool abilities & unique look.
Hot Asian chicks are always needed & welcome.

Domino would be boring..look she has guns. Blah!
Look she has a white face..is she Johnny Depp?

Shit art
csdot - 7/27/2013, 1:36 PM
art is awesome. love the Diabolik homage panel.
ChanceX74 - 7/27/2013, 2:27 PM
Man, I've been out of the loop for a while now. Are all the X-Men going gay? Aren't they being a little ham-fisted with all the conversions? Rictor? Shatterstar? Who's next? Wolverine?
PersonOfNoInterest - 7/27/2013, 3:43 PM
Um... terrible art... well, okay, it's not that bad. But neither one of them looks like the characters I know. Seems like a soap opera more than an X-Men title.. and when did Psylocke kill Captain Britain?

Guess I've been over at DC for too long.

@xcrementus -

I can't agree with you more. I've almost completely lost interest at this point. I met Humpries at a signing when the book premiered and got really excited after talking with him about the characters. Things started out okay, but I feel like he's just winging it at this point with this Psylocke love triangle that seems completely off track from what was happening with Bishop. Maybe Rick Remender is just too tough to follow, but his series started out with a bang and continued to hammer through to the end. With this new run I'm left scratching my head. And now the art sucks as well to top things off.

WOW... that is one manly looking Psylocke. OTOKO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
RPD - 7/27/2013, 6:56 PM
Hope she kills him. Fantomex is so annoying...
Shadowelfz - 7/27/2013, 7:48 PM
Ugh please kill him Besty. Pretty please?

The art at Marvel is getting worse by the day.
jimoakley666 - 7/28/2013, 6:51 AM
I really like that artwork. You lot have got crossed eyes, I swear.
samster10001 - 7/28/2013, 3:34 PM
Interior art is shit and I agree what's with all marvel characters being gayed up out of nowhere. [frick]ing retarded.
Minato - 7/28/2013, 3:45 PM
X-Force Movie= Cable, Deadpool, Domino, Fantomex, Psylocke
wcwpoet - 7/29/2013, 6:41 AM
I'm freaking confused as heck isn't Fantomex in Cable & X-Force? Is this more Wolverine type stuff where he's in multiple books doing one thing that has nothing to do with the other?
