    Default Not Brand Echh!! and What The !?

    Does anyone else remember these titles? I thought these were hilarious and as I recall some big name artists drew for some of theses issues. What were some of your favorite "skits" if you will?

    I always liked the silly What Ifs where Galactus becomes Elvis or takes the place of Peter Parker and other things like that.

    Not Brand Echh was the better of the two. Myabe I'm being partial since that cover of Not Brand Echh #7 was one of my very first comics as a kid. The later issues went down hill and What The!? just didn't capture the flavor of Not Brand Echh.

    Would love a revival of Not Brand Echh but satire is so hard to write (In my honest opinion). Be neat to see Bendis spoof his on style of dialogue.

    Not Brand Echh coming back would be great. Make it 1.99 and print it on newsprint. Keep it cheap. Let big name writers and artists loose on it.
    Those Watcher pages were always hilarious. Here's more images I found.

    Not brand ecch was before my time , i suppose it has the distinction of having Jack Kirby draw a fantastic four parody.





    The starting first couple of issues of What the ?! was fun , sadly the quality got poorer and poorer later.

    I think I still have that issue somewhere... I only had about 5 issues of What The ? that I read over and over dozens of times, until they became dog earred and the covers fell off. Great stuff.

    I would love to see both Not Brand Ecchs and What The? reprinted as Essentials.

    I love What The--?!

    It's nonsensical fun.

    The few I've read are fantastic and I'd welcome a release in trade.

    What If? had a humor issue I saw...

    It included "What if Magneto got on an elevator with Iron Man, Doctor Doom, and Colossus?"

    Great stuff.

    Dude, isn't Captain Marvel on one of them? I think that's the only one I don't have.

    p.s. This comic and it's covers represent just how much of a fight it was to establish Marvel...and in some ways, still is.

    I took my the name "Fanboy Stranger" from a Dr. Strange story in What The--!!. A veiled Zatanna lures Dr. Strange to the a veiled DCU where he meets Deadman, who is jamming out to Grateful Dead bootlegs, and the Fandom Stranger, who asks him a million inane questions about continuity.

    I own the first issue of Not Brand Ecch. Didn't buy it new, of course, but I did buy it cheap.

    Marvel parodies are tough reads.
