First Look: 4-Page Unlettered Preview of ULTIMATE COMICS X-MEN #4

Kitty Pryde shows us what she can do in the upcoming issue of ULTIMATE COMICS X-Men.

Yesterday we reported on Marvel's decision to make all of their ULTIMATES line of comics available for free digitally, and today we have some more ULTIMATES comic news. Earlier this morning, Marvel released a four page, unlettered preview of their upcoming ULTIMATES COMICS X-MEN issue #4, and it looks like not everyone will be getting along.

STORY BY: Nick SpencerART BY: Paco Medina, Juan VlascoCOLORS BY: Marte GraciaCOVER BY: Kaare AndrewsRELEASE: Wed, December 7th, 2011
Stryker’s rampage against all of mutantkind escalates in your first look at Ultimate Comics X-Men #4 from the creative team of Nick Spencer and Paco Medina! With the number of mutants still on the run dwindling down, the new X-Men must act quickly if there is any hope of survival. Except when tensions rise amongst the group – a traitor may be in their midst. Can Stryker be stopped and can the X-Men hold it together in time to save their race? Find out in Ultimate Comics X-Men #4!

Although the latest preview of ULTIMATE COMICS X-MEN is unlettered, there's a lot you can tell from these few panels. Whether Johnny Storm is being a jerk, or Kitty Pryde just happens to have a really short fuse remains to be seen; but one thing's for sure, you do not want to mess with Ktty Pryde. The two get into a heated altercation, and Ms. Pryde hardly gives Johnny a chance to "flame on" before blasting him through a wall.

Paco Medina and Juan Vlasco split art responsibilities in this issue while Marte Garcia handles the colors. The end result? One gorgeous comic. Check out the full four page preview below, and if you like what you see, look for the book on store shelves December 7th.

That Quicksilver....I envy Medina, Vlasco, and Garcia's artwork.

She probably increased her density to whack Johnny across the room. Kind of interesting to see Johnny even go so far as to flame on over whatever argument they're having.
