*Marvel: Inspired no doubt by DC’s Imaginary Stories of the 1960s, in 1977 Marvel came up with the What If concept, which had fun with the what-might-have-beens of the Marvel Universe. Highly popular with fans, who loved this sort of done-in-one stories previously only the speculations of fandom, the What If franchise lasted 47 issues of the first series, spawned a highly successful sequel series and still continues with a range of one-shots periodically to this day. We have over half the run of the first series fresh in, including #31 (VF p £29 – What If Wolverine Had Killed The Hulk?). Our personal favourite from this selection is #11 (What If The Original Marvel Bullpen Had Become the Fantastic Four?), which has to be seen to be believed.
