Don't Call It 'What If'… IDW's 'Deviations' For Ghostbusters, GI Joe, TMNT, Transformers And X-Files

In 1952, Isaac Asimov wrote the story What If? about a couple who could view alternate timelines on a television set. Marvel nicked the name. But alternate histories, whether based on fiction or fact, have often fascinated and answer the very basic question – what if?

Or, in IDW's terminalogy, Deviations. A five weekly series in March…
