We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's three of mine:
|Proposed Title:||What If? Spider-Man, Vol. 1, & .|
|Alternate Title:||Spider-Man: What If?, Vol. 1, ...Vol. 2 & ...Vol. 3.|
|Vol. 1 Collecting 10 Issues:||What If (1977) #1, 7, 19, 24, 30, 46; What If (1989) #4, 17, 20, 21.|
|Vol. 2 Collecting 10 Issues:||What If (1989) #31, 35, 42, 53, 58, 61, 72, 76, 82, 86.|

Marvel has devoted just as many What If? stories to your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man as they have to the X-Men. Although Spidey's lagging way behind the merry mutants when you add in the Phoenix & Wolverine issues of What If? (see What If? X-Men, Vol. 1-3, What If? Phoenix and What If? Wolverine, Vol. 1-2, for a better idea of what I'm talking about). These three volumes would be great, because they span all the way from the first issue of the 1977 What If? series, to the fairly recent Spider-Man: House of M storyline.
For the covers, I wanted to go with something that showed the familiar Spidey costume, as much as possible. So for Volume 1, I'd go with What If (1977) #30, although the Showman Spidey on #19 is really tempting (if not for the guy in the purple plaid jacket). For Volume 2, the six-armed Spidey on What If (1989) #42. For Volume 3, I'd go with the red haired Spidey with Black Cat, on What If (1989) #99.
11/8/12: I added in two 2011 What If? one-shots: What If? Spider-Man (!!!) and Venom/ Deadpool: What If?. This let me move What If? (1989) #86 to Volume 2, and make each volume 10 issues long, instead of 10, 9 & 9. The Venom/ Deadpool issue is a collected one-shot of the four-part back-up from these issues: What If? Iron Man: Demon In An Armor, What If? Wolverine: Father, What If? Spider-Man and What If? Dark Reign.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
