|33||10/11/10||What If? Spider-Man, Vol. 1-3||(Blog) (Forum)||Spider-Man||(Back) (Next)|
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:|
|Vol. 2 Collecting 10 Issues:||What If (1989) #31, 35, 42, 53, 58, 61, 72, 76, 82, 86|
|Vol. 3 Collecting 10 Issues:|
|Covers: (click to enlarge)|
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?* 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.
|*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.|
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 ten issues long, instead of ten, nine, and nine. 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.
