    Now listening to the STAR WARS WHAT IFs and reminded that Dark Horse did try such a thing. Called “Infinities,” maybe? Also related, have any of you guys seen Jay Stephens’ REBEL FOUR strip? Bet you’d dig it.

      I don’t remember INFINITES, but I believe it was a thing. On the other hand, I don’t know REBEL FOUR, but Jay Stephens is awesome (ODDVILLE and JETCAT were super great), so I’m gonna look into that. Thanks, Jon!
