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 this issue of Improbable Previews, Nick Fury Jr. kicks off his solo adventures in a story by James Robinson and ACO. But what kinds of secret missions will the modern psychedelic super-spy be tasked with? We’ve applied Stan Lee’s mighty Marvel method to these unlettered preview pages in an attempt to decrypt the code. Until Nick Fury #1 hits stores on April 19, this is the best you’ve got.
