Re: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS 5-page preview

It says "Expected release April 10th", which is a month past the early release date from March. I can only access the preview; otherwise, it says "preorder".

Countdown to Darkness #4 is currently scheduled for release on April 17. However, the graphic novel compilation of the entire series will be released on April 10. How's that for fucked up?

Looks like #4 may be up. Or least a couple pages. Font is too small for me to read what they are saying.
I can make out most of it by zooming in, though it's blurry. Here's what I think it says (the pages are actually the wrong way around, with the first page on the right):

Countdown was released the same way; the trade paperback was available a week before issue #4.

The reasons had to do with production and distribution. The trade paperbacks were printed elsewhere and had a different supply chain. And technically, the trade paperback of Countdown was street dated for the same day as issue #4. But some outlets ignored the street date and put it on sale early.

Re: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS 5-page preview

Guess I didn't notice this before or maybe I did but if you look at the itunes page, it has the comics with text. And CHRISTOPHER was able to note most of what was said, but what wasn't there before was the scroll bar which scrolls the comic to the next page, which is the teaser page for #4, but this time has text.

Can anyone make out what the Klingons and April are saying??

Re: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS 5-page preview

^actually I can read a little of what the last two pics say..

Klingon: And why would we do that April?
April: Because I can give you the Starship Federation Enterprise

Can't make out tho what April was asking of the Klingons yet.

April wants to make some kind of deal with them and offers the Enterprise in return.
But I can't quite make out what the deal is.

Well, they'll probably be a starship to be named later involved in the deal, too. Or draft picks.

I wonder what happened in the Abramsverse that turned April evil...

Based on Countdown I wouldn't call April evil.
He's spent 20 years fighting a war, trying to protect those poor Phaedans from being slaughtered when he could have hidden behind the PD and stayed on Enterprise drinking coffee, working his way to Admiral.
Stealing Enterprise and making that deal seems to be his last & only hope to win.
