RANDOM WORK OF WOW: Lenadro Franci's Psylocke

Sometimes you stumble across a portfolio where the artist only has a couple of comic based pieces, other times there can be one work so brilliant, you'd risk being stoned to death by fellow art lovers for putting something else beside it. These are Random Works of Wow, and illustrating the point this week is Lenadro Franci and Psylocke.

It's been a while since RWOW and My thing for Psylocke featured on IADW, so it's great to get both back with such a killer piece. Plus Psylocke actually looks Asian - an aspect many artists seem to forget.

Lenadro captures the contrasts of this character perfectly. How she is an X-woman, yet almost suits standing in a more Marvel Knights type setting and the traditional katana sliding round into her mentally created one, blending the past with the future.
