Improbable Previews: Dark Days The Forge Triple Feature With Jim Lee, Andy Kubert, and John Romita Jr.

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, we have pages from three artists from DC’s upcoming prequel to the Dark Nights: Metal super-mega-crossover event which is itself the prequel to the launch of the Dark Matter publishing line. That means instead of one long Improbable Previews, lucky readers, today you get three short ones!

First up, there’s a page from Dark Days: The Forge #1 by the creative team of Jim Lee and Scott Williams:

And one from the creative team of John Romita Jr. and Jonathan Glapion:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
