  1. I’ve enjoyed every single piece you’ve done in this couture style it reminds me of the New X-men costumes of Morrison & Quietly. Your art gives them that timeless look that could fit in any storyline from Claremont to Ellis. Please keep up the uncanny work you do.

  2. Firstly, amazing as usual…there’s just a few little things that irk me.

    Why did he include Sage, one of the crappiest characters to ever sport an X?
    Second, why isn’t Psylocke’s hair purple. Her hair has been consistently purple since her debut as a mild mannered english rose.
    Thirdly, why did he have to make Ms. Marvel looks like Lady Gaga?

    Other than these minor gripes, I humbly bow down in reverence to your brilliance.
