That interior art looks incredible. My money remains on this book being the breakout hit with the CBR super-fan crowd.
Humphries' enthusiasm and understanding of the cast has sold and god bless Lowe for approving this. 90's art vibe is cautiously okay, but I'm more interested in second artist. Plz let it be Coipel, and not Deodato.
People are quick to forget/ignore the power of art. As a form of healing, and as a form of propaganda.

It's not going to be Coipel or Deodato. Sorry. They're over in Avengers land.
From what little X-men I've read, I think she's a cool character and I plan to check this out for her. I 'm also thinking of getting Remender's X-Force, because I hear she has a prominent role in it.
Any other trades/HCs focusing on her? What's Psylocke's essential reading for a Psylocke newbie?
Remender's UXF is very essential to where she's going to be in the new volume of the series. I do think the book plays an important role in defining Psylocke.
After that, try Psylocke Mini (2010/2011) by Chris Yost. It has an introduction of where Betsy was (before the transformation) and some great action, especially the Wolverine vs Psylocke fight.
If you want to go further, read the 80's Claremont's Uncanny X-Men in the Australian Outback + Act of Vengeace (where the Transformation of Psylocke happened) + X-Men (90's) issue #1-7 (where the Blue-Gold Team formed).
Hope that helps

I liked Garney's sketchy style he's been doing the past few years but this is amazing stuff. Has an Adam Kubert vibe to it. Damn, yet another book added to the pull list....
Support titles that need supporting. Quit buying, reading and complaining about comics you don't enjoy.
She also didn't have much of the Hero streak they retconned her into having. She donned the costume because no one else would. She was a more reluctant heroine. But tht set up her run in the American issues.
They should really revisit her days in Britain. Especially showing how she cared for the warpies.
