Best of "What If...?": #11

One-Shot (2005)
Wha… Huh?

CoverWritten by Brian Michael Bendis, Mark Millar, Brian K Vaughan, and Ed Brubaker
Drawn by Jim Mahfood

Travel back in time with me to August 2005.

Brian Michael Bendis is writing Daredevil, New Avengers, and Ultimate Spider-Man. And the limited series House of M… and Powers… and The Pulse.

Mark Millar is writing both Ultimates 2 and Wolverine. He just wrapped up a year on Spider-Man, and he’s returning to Ultimate Fantastic Four next month.

Brian K Vaughan, meanwhile, is writing only Runaways and Ultimate X-Men… for Marvel. He’s also writing both Y: The Last Man and Ex Machina for Vertigo.

Ed Brubaker, finally, is taking it easy by just writing Captain America… plus twelve issues each of Sleeper and The Authority: Revolution for WildStorm.

These four men would have to be crazy to find time to collaborate on a humor special. Luckily for us, their workloads have driven them all quite insane…

“I have never seen anything so pathetic as your purchase of this incredibly stupid comic book. And I’ve seen pathetic. I was there for CrossGen.”
