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 dialogue 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.

But when Ollie tries to do some killing of his own, Wonder Woman shows up to stop him. Check out what happens — or our best guess at what happens — below:
