We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:
|Proposed Title:||What If? Daredevil.|
|Alternate Title:||Daredevil: What If?.|
|Collecting 13 Issues:|
|Covers: (click to enlarge)|
"What If Daredevil Became An Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D.?" was one of the early What If? stories that put that title on the map for me. It stands out for me as one of the first cool examples of a practical use of super powers. Enhanced senses and fighting abilities? Sure, become a super agent for the government - makes sense to me. It stood out to plenty of others too, because over the years, creators have envisioned other heroes as SHIELD agents, like Wolverine, Punisher, even Bruce Wayne through Amalgam, and culminating in everyone through Civil War.
Fortunately for readers, that's not the only What If? asked by creators, and this collection would showcase the other twelve, along with it. As much as I'd like to see #28 as the cover, I think the better cover is What If? (1989) #2, which showcases Daredevil in a more recognizable costume.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
