Improbable Previews: The Spectacular Spencer-Man Debuts in Amazing Spider-Man #1

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.

In this issue of Improbable Previews, we've gotten our hands on some unlettered Ryan Ottley art from his and Nick Spencer's Amazing Spider-Man #1, which were posted in the middle of a CBR fluff interview broken up into five clickable parts. What will happen when the man behind Secret Empire and a failed Cincinnati city council bid takes over everyone's favorite friendly neighborhood wall-crawler? We'll have to wait until July to find out, but you can get a sneak peak below:

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1
NICK SPENCER (W) • RYAN OTTLEY (A/C)
An alien invasion hits New York City and the only one who can stop it is…Spider-Man?! But that's far from all you'll find here – a revelation from the past puts Peter Parker's job, relationships, and whole life in jeopardy! And if even that's not enough, you'll see a new roommate, new love interests – and a new villain! Spider-Man goes back to basics courtesy of Nick Spencer (SECRET EMPIRE, SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN) and the Marvel debut of RYAN OTTLEY (Invincible)!

About Jude Terror

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

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
