We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's two of mine:

Proposed Title:Human Torch Team-Up, Volume 1 & ...Volume 2.
Alternate Title:Marvel Team-Up Featuring The Human Torch, Volume 1 & ...Volume 2.
Vol. 1 Collecting 8 Issues:Marvel Team-Up (1972) #1-3, 10, 18, 23, 26, 29.
Vol. 2 Collecting 8 Issues:Marvel Team-Up (1972) #32, 35, 39, 61, 121, 147; Marvel Two-in-One (1974) #59, 89.
Volume 1 Covers: (click to enlarge)
Volume 2 Covers: (click to enlarge)
Vol 1 TPB Cover: Marvel Team-Up #18
Vol 2 TPB Cover: Marvel Team-Up #35

The Human Torch teams up with The Hulk, Iceman, Thor, Iron Man, The Son of Satan, Doctor Strange, The Thing, and of course, Spider-Man, to fight foes like Sandman, The Frightful Four, Morbius the Living Vampire, Kang the Conqueror, Infinitus, Speed Demon, The Black Abbott and more! I was surprised at just how many issues of Marvel Team-Up had featured the Human Torch. Throw in two appearances in the Thing's Marvel Two-in-One, and we get two eight-issue volumes that would look hot on a bookshelf. The issues I picked for the covers were chosen because they show the Torch in the middle of the cover.

Marvel has some precedence for this, having published Ghost Rider Team-Up (2007) (although I think it could have been a much better TPB than it was).

Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
