We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:
|Proposed Title:||What If? Phoenix.|
|Alternate Title:||Phoenix: What If?.|
|Collecting 10 Issues:|
|Covers: (click to enlarge)|
Phoenix: The Untold Story is an alternate ending to The Dark Phoenix Saga, where Jean Grey lived, and includes interviews with the creative team. I'd love to see it included in this collection. The X-Men/ Titans crossover is just for kicks and giggles, because What If Darkseid and Dark Phoenix teamed up against the universe? What If? Rise... is there because it asks "What if Vulcan gained the power of the Phoenix?" Guardians of the Galaxy #9-11 is the "World of Mutants" storyline, which ends with the birth of a new Phoenix, so I put that in there, because Guardians was set in an alternate future, so was basically an ongoing What If. It also rounds the TPB out to a nice 10 issues.
For the cover, I don't really like any of the What If? covers, so I'd make a rare departure here from my rule of not using one-shot covers for TPB covers, and go with the cover of Phoenix: The Untold Story. Better though: an original cover of Phoenix (preferably Dark Phoenix) with the Phoenix Effect around her.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
