Marvel announce a new line of “What If...?” comics coming this fall
We’ve all asked that question when reading a comic: “what if?” What If the circumstances that led to this person becoming a hero never happened? What if somebody else was in the right place at the wrong time and became endowed with great power... for better or worse? What if a reality-altering event just never happened?
Marvel’s answer to those questions is their What If...? series of comics, and this October they’re bringing the label back in a big way. The six one-shot issues, written and illustrated by some top-tier comics talent, will look at what would have happened had Flash Thompson become Spider-Man, what Peter Parker would have been like had he become the Punisher instead, and other scenarios that don’t necessarily involve the wallcrawer.
Head over to the Marvel blog for more details, including the synopses and creative teams behind each title.
The six What If...? one-shots will hit comic shops and other retailers beginning October 3.
