WHAT IF ORIGINAL MARVEL SERIES OMNIBUS HC VOL 01 PEREZ CVR (18 Aug 2021)
Marvel Comics

With Disney+'s What If series coming out, Marvel will be releasing What If? Omnibus to coincide with the series. Coming out August 18, 2021, for $100.

Art and details from Marvel and Previews mentioned a cover by George Perez... but I didn't recognize it as a Perez piece (George has only drawn interior art for What If #15).

A quick search reveals that the original cover What If? #1 (Feb 1977) is by Jim Craig and Joe Sinnott (based on design by John Romita).

UPDATE: comics.org thinks the cover artist is John Buscema or Keith Pollard. Comparing Craig's interior art, I think it looks very different from the cover... so I tend to believe Buscema did the cover artwork. Romita actually made alterations to Sue Storm and Spider-Man, so he's technically a partial cover artist. One thing is for sure, George Perez did not draw that cover.
