Improbable Previews: Corpses of Ideas Rise From the Grave in New Mutants: Dead Souls #1

Every so often (but seemingly less so since we started this column), comic book publishers send out previews of upcoming comics without any of the words added. The result, while nice to look at, fails to give readers a sense of what the final product will actually be like, which is, after all, the purpose of a preview.

Thankfully, there’s a better way! We’ve wasted decades reading comic books, so we can pretty much tell what’s happening in any comic just by looking at the pictures. In that spirit, we’ve completed these unlettered previews ourselves, using our best guess at what the dialogue will be. We can’t guarantee 100% accuracy, but we can guarantee that it’s more fun than looking at the unlettered art.

In this issue of Improbable Previews, we found this unlettered preview of New Mutants: Dead Souls #1 by Matthew RosenbergAdam Gorham, and Michael Garland in a dumpster outside the offices of Valnet Inc., pulled it out, dusted it off, and swiftly applied lettering to complete the story. New Mutants: Dead Souls #1 (of 6) hits stores on March 14th. Until then, this is all we’ve got…

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.
