Not to be confused with Marvel’s classic What If? series, this time around the I.F. stands for Imaginary Friend and that is the focus of this heartfelt tale. This poignant story follows a unique creature that exists in our imagination … or perhaps we simply exist in his. Written by D.J. Strong with art by Jeramy Hobbs, What I.F. is a “one in done” one-shot that weaves an emotional narrative through a letter written by Penelope Xylophone’s imaginary friend Jackson Leviathan. In this correspondence, he reflects on their time together and comes to terms with the fact that the time has come to move on.

What I.F. ... a familiar story the world has never heard
 about a character we've never met but have always known. 

"What I.F. reads like a poetic love letter rather than your typical comic, mourning the loss of a friendship and the death of a life one discovered was never really real. The subject matter is deep and is approached as such. Imaginary friends, suicide, and mental illness are usually dealt with in a comedic or dark and masturbatory manner. Not so in the comic What I.F.."
