Every so often, comic book publishers send out previews of upcoming comics without any of the lettering finished. The result, while pretty to look at, leaves readers wondering just what the hell is going on in those pages. Well, wonder no more.
Here at Bleeding Cool, we have combined decades of experience in reading comic books, so we can tell what’s happening, even without the words. Using that knowledge, we’ve lettered these previews ourselves, using our best guess at what the dialog should actually be. We can’t guarantee 100% accuracy- in fact, our accuracy may be much lower than that – but we can guarantee that it’s better than looking at a bunch of unfinished pages.
In the latest, long-awaited issue of Improbable Previews, we look at Weapon X #1, one of the books spinning out of the meat-and-potatoes ResurrXion relaunch event! Greg Pak writes this one with Greg Land on art chores, but let’s not hold Land’s “art” against it. Fresh off his movie success, Logan deserves a fresh start, and a team of similar mutants dealing with the organization that’s haunted his past for decades seems like the perfect way to accomplish that… we think. Check out our application of Stan Lee’s mighty Marvel method to these unlettered preview pages, and check out Weapon X #1 when it hit stores on April 12!
