    Matsu'o did make Psylocke into the Psylocke we all know and love; there's some bad blood between them, and now it's only been made worse. Will Yost successfully lay the body plot to rest for good (yes, ber pun intended), and if he does, what's going to happen then? Will this be the end of it, once and for all? Read Full Review

    But ultimately, as you might expect, this book caters to the Psylocke fan more than just the casual X-reader. It heavily references (but never outright explains) Kwannon, her various power sets, her time as a blonde-haired British girl, and the recent events in Matt Fraction's "Sisterhood" arc. It also lacks a wider relevance to the overall X-Men line that would appeal to less hardcore readers. But if Psylocke is your thing, and you've been clamoring for her return to the team for years, you certainly won't be disappointed by her portrayal here. Read Full Review

    There's a nagging feeling in me that this story, as intriguing as I find it, will probably be deeply uninteresting to people who aren't already invested in the character. That said, it's been a while since Psylocke had much of the spotlight, and even longer since she did so in a way as well-written as this. I, and the planet's other five Psylocke fans, welcome it.

    The Comic Addiction - Paul Steven Brown Nov 4, 2009

    This mini is off to a decent start but this is far from feeling like the definitive Psylocke story. The visuals a pretty good and get the job done. Hopefully, we’ll get to know who Psylocke is again and what makes her tick and that this series doesn’t end up being just something to wrap a sexy David Finch cover around. Read Full Review

    Wolverine will likely pop up later in the storyline, and Psylocke has a big, nasty sword on the cover of the next issue--so there is likely to be lots more bloody fighting in the next few issues (if that's what the kind of thing you enjoy). Read Full Review

    This comic is thoroughly entertaining and fast-paced, and I don't think I could really call it "a girl comic." Yeah, it has a female protagonist, but it's outside the girly box--so to all the guys out there who might be apprehensive about buying this miniseries because it's a girl comic, it's definitely no Wonder Woman. It's a sure hit for Psylocke fans, and a definite take-a-look for anyone in need of some amusement. Read Full Review
