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.
As superstar writer "The Great One" Brian Bendis builds to the end of his final story arc on Guardians of the Galaxy, "Grounded," he intends to make a lasting impact, leaving the comic in a "cool, classy way" and setting up the next creative team (Charles Soule and TBA?) to pick up the pieces. But what about the poor characters in the book, subject to being the tools for an aging Bendis to leave one more mark on the Marvel Universe? Will any of them survive?! Find out as we reletter Guardians of the Galaxy #16, by Bendis and Valerio Schiti (in stores January 11), in this issue of… IMPROBABLE PREVIEWS!
