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

Proposed Title:What If? Avengers, Vol. 1.
Alternate Title:Avengers: What If?, Vol. 1.
TPB Cover:WI (1977) #29.
Collecting 11 Issues:What If (1977) # 3, 9, 20, 25, 29, 32, 35, 38; What If (1989) # 1, 5, 19

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 11 issues, but #35 & #38 ('77 series) aren't complete issues. They are there for the Yellowjacket and Vision/ Scarlet Witch stories. So it's really 9 issues and not quite a full 10th issue. Don't forget: What If? #5 ('89 series) 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.


Proposed Title:What If? Avengers, Vol. 2.
Alternate Title:Avengers: What If?, Vol. 2.
TPB Cover:What If? Featuring Avengers Disassembled (2006).
Collecting 9 Issues:What If (1989) # 28, 29, 36, 41, 55, 56, 108; What If Jessica Jones Had Joined the Avengers? (2005); What If? Featuring Avengers Disassembled (2006).

Covers (click to enlarge):


For volume two, I added WI #28 ('89 series) because it's actually the first part of a two-part story with #29. I think it's kind of cool to start the book off with a two-part story. For the cover, although it's not my favorite, I'd go with What If? Featuring Avengers Disassembled, because it has the most Avengers on the cover.

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