Improbable Previews: Relationship Problems Abound In X-Men Gold #1

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 look at X-Men: Gold #1, the new comic from Marc Guggenheim and Adrian Syaf that kicks off as part of Marvel's ResurrXion relaunch event on April 5. We've already heard that the book will bring back the "soap opera" aspects of the X-Men, while eschewing stories about equality or civil rights and mutants as a "struggling minority." It also puts former romantic partners Kitty Pryde and Colossus on the same team. What will happen? Read on to find out!

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.
