Jimmy Kimmel’s Secret Could Rock the Marvel Universe in Improbable West Coast Avengers Preview

Every so often (but seemingly less so since we started this column), comic book publishers accidentally send out unlettered previews, showing us what the characters are doing but not what they’re saying. What a boner! In Improbable Previews, we correct this mistake by putting the words back in, using our best guess at what they are based on decades of time wasted reading comic books. We can’t guarantee 100% accuracy, of course.

Earlier today, we learned that Jimmy Kimmel will guest star in an upcoming issue of West Coast Avengers, and Marvel even teased the appearance with an unlettered page from the issue. Well, that was nice, but what’s a comic without the speech bubbles? It’s just pictures then. So we added the words, as best we could guess them. Check out the preview below, and pick up West Coast Avengers #4 when it hits stores in November.

West Coast Avengers #4
(W) Kelly Thompson (A/CA) Stefano Caselli
• If the team thought a 50-Foot Woman version of Tigra was trouble, just wait till they get a load of her “friends.”
• That’s right, it’s close encounters of the very large and destructive kind as the West Coast Avengers try to save the day from B-movie-monster-sized threats roaming Los Angeles!
• And while her team takes the direct approach, Kate Bishop finds herself in a compromising position when trying to get ahead of the game… Is she going to end up on the wrong side of this battle?!

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.

About News with Benefits

Why let facts get in the way of a good story? News with Benefits is just like the actual news, but more interesting because it’s embellished. Yes, it may feature made-up quotes, wrong assertions, and completely baseless speculation, but in a way, isn’t that more honest than the shameless buttkissing and corporate shillery you often find in the “real” news? Don’t answer that.

News with Benefits was pioneered at toilet-themed comic book news and opinion website TheOuthousers.com, which is sadly now defunct, but its stench lives on thanks to the support of your clicks and outraged comments.
