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.
In this issue of Improbable Previews, we attempted to figure out what was happening in Nick Spencer and Rod Reis' Civil War 2: The Oath #1 while hopped up on pain medication after hurting our knee on the ice over the weekend. Did we accurately predict what the story is about? We think so. But give it a read, and let us know. Civil War 2: The Oath, hits stores on January 25, after originally having an October 26 release date, thanks to how ridiculously late Civil War 2 ended up being.
