We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:

Proposed Title:Zorro's Lady Rawhide.
Alternate Title:1) Lady Rawhide Compendium; 2) Lady Rawhide.
TPB Cover:LR Sp Ed ('99) #1 or original cover.
Collecting 14* Issues:Lady Rawhide (Wizard mini-comic) (1995); Lady Rawhide: Special Edition #1 (1999); Lady Rawhide (1995) #1-5 (aka LR: It Can't Happen Here); Lady Rawhide #1/2 (1996) ; Lady Rawhide (1996) #1-5 (aka LR: Other People's Blood).

Covers (click to enlarge):


Lady Rawhide was the breakout rogue from Topps' Zorro, eclipsing him in popularity and eventually gaining a couple rogues of her own, in Star Wolf and Scarlet Fever. Because I loved the Topps Zorro series, I'd love to see it and the Lady Rawhide material reprinted in color. It would include the Lady Rawhide mini-comic from Wizard Magazine, the Wizard half issue, the Lady Rawhide Special reprinting her first appearance (from Zorro #2-3), and both Lady Rawhide mini-series. And don't forget the cover art from Wizard Ace Edition #5 (reprint of Zorro #3) and Image's version of Other People's Blood:

There were a few other appearances of Lady Rawhide in the pages of the Topps Zorro title, but I left them out, because 14 issues is already a little larger than I typically like, and the idea of this TPB is to get a collection of everything with a Lady Rawhide title on it. The other issues would be collected in the previous WUBI's Zorro's Renegades.

For the cover, I'd like to go with the Lady Rawhide Wizard mini-comic, or with the 1995 LR #1, just to be different. However, the most recognizable image of Lady Rawhide is from Lady Rawhide Special Edition #1. In a way, I hate to see it get used for a TPB, because the image was also used for Zorro #3 (although they deepened the red tones for LR Sp Ed), but it is the best choice, out of existing covers. Otherwise, an original cover should be drawn - hopefully just showcasing the character, not putting her in a sexual cheescake pose.

Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.


*Technically, LR: Special Edition #1 is two issues - it reprints Zorro #2 & 3. So the collection is really reprinting 14 issues, not 13.
