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

Proposed Title:What If? Venom.
Alternate Title:Venom: What If?.
Collecting 6 Issues:
Covers: (click to enlarge)

Venom is a character that seems to have grabbed hold of fans from the very start, when he was still being referred to as an "alien costume." Love him or hate him, there have been three What If? stories about him, a fourth where he has a brief but significant part (#31), and a fifth with his offspring, Carnage. Throw in his origin, from Uncanny Origins #7 (1997), and I think this would be a cool read.

TPB Cover: What If (1989) #44

*******

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.

The site redesign had messed this blog up for a bit, and I couldn't get into it to edit it. So for a brief time, I had redone this blog as a list, and these are the comments from that list (the list is now deleted):

cbishop6/7/14 @8:56pm@kfhrfdu_89_76k: Well, the quality will probably vary from story to story, but What If in general is usually pretty good. I'd like to see it.
