We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's two of mine:
|Proposed Title:||What If? Wolverine, Vol. 1 & .|
|Alternate Title:||Wolverine: What If?, Vol. 1 & ...Vol. 2.|
|Vol. 1 Collecting 8 Issues:|
|Vol. 2 Collecting 9 Issues:|
|Covers: (click to enlarge)|
There's a couple of things I like about Volume 1: 1) It begins and ends with variations on the first battle between Wolverine and the Hulk. 2) I presented these issues in order of publication, so it just worked out that #6, 24 & 37 were all in the same volume. I like that, because I included #6 (an X-Men issue) because it related to Inferno, so it ties in with #37, which is a variation on #24. That's not really huge, but I like it that it's all in one volume, without having to move issues out of order. Volume 2 is a bit more of a mix, but still a bunch of cool stories.
For the Volume 1 cover, I'd go with What If? (1989) #7. That cover of Wolverine as a SHIELD agent was a big hit, because it took fans back to the story of Daredevil as an agent of SHIELD, from What If? (1977) #28. For the Volume 2 cover, I'd go with the '89 series #59, with Wolverine leading Alpha Flight, and standing over downed X-Men. I would have gone with the issue #111 cover, of Wolverine as the Horseman of War, leaping at the reader, but I don't like the curved claws. Yeah, I'm picky like that sometimes.
11/8/12: I added the 2011 one-shot, What If? Wolverine: Father, to Volume 2. It's a cool little story of what might have happened, had Logan found Daken as a baby.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
