We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here are two of mine:
|Proposed Title:|| & .|
|Alternate Title:||Avengers: What If?, Vol. 1 & ...Vol. 2.|
|Vol. 1 Collecting 10 Issues:||What If (1977) #3, 9, 20, 25, 29, 32, 35, 38; What If (1989) #1, 5|
|Vol. 2 Collecting 10 Issues:|
|Volume 1 Covers: (click to enlarge)|

When I first started doing these "Would U Buy It" blogs, I started out thinking that bigger, omnibus style volumes would be cool. Honestly though, book binders haven't totally worked out how to keep the contents from coming away from the spine, for softcover editions. With that in mind, I'm breaking these 20 issues up into two volumes.
The first volume has ten issues, but What If (1977) #35 & #38 aren't complete issues. They are there for the Yellowjacket and Vision/ Scarlet Witch stories. So it's really nine issues and not quite a full tenth issue. Don't forget: What If? (1989) #5 has a second Avengers story: "What If Wonder Man Hadn't Died?"
For the cover, I'd use What If (1977) #29, because it's a cool shot of the Avengers standing over fallen foes, and it was a favorite story of mine, as a kid.
For volume two, I added What If (1989) #28 because it's actually the first part of a two-part story with #29. I think it's kind of cool that the book would have a two-part story.
For the cover, although it's not my favorite, I'd go with What If? Featuring Avengers Disassembled. I don't like to use one-shot covers on the TPB's, but it has the most Avengers on the cover.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
