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?!
