We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:
|Proposed Title:||Zorro's Lady Rawhide.|
|Collecting 14** Issues:|
|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.
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, because I think that's just...well, cheesy.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
