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.
