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

Proposed Title:The Brave and the Bold - Batman & Green Arrow: Brotherhood of the Fist. (I couldn't fit all that in the blog title box.).
Alternate Title:
  1. Batman: Brotherhood of the Fist
  2. Brotherhood of the Fist
Collecting 5 Issues:
  • Green Arrow (1988) # 134-135
  • Detective Comics (1937) # 723
  • Robin (1993) # 55
  • Nightwing (1996) # 23.
Covers: (click to enlarge)
TPB Cover: Green Arrow #135

Brotherhood of the Fist is the story that made Connor Hawke the #2 martial artist in the DCU, and quite simply, it is a fun ride. This story has since been made moot, because Oliver Queen has returned from the dead, and Cassandra Cain actually beat Lady Shiva, but I think this is a story that deserves to be collected. As with City of Assassins (see WUBI #2), I suggest Brave & Bold as a title because that was the Batman team-up book, and I think this TPB would sell better with a Batman title on the cover. As it is a long title, I could see DC going with the alternate title.

For the cover, this is primarily a Green Arrow story, so I'd go with Green Arrow #135. However, Robin #55 shows all the heroes involved.

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

@Gambler: Lady Shiva is indeed cool.  I'm gradually building a list of her appearances.  I'd really like to see a collection of Lady Shiva apperances - those ones where she appears and challenges someone to a battle. I have these issues as well, but would still like to see the TPB.

@Mister Sarcastic: Cool. Thank you.  Wait...was that sarcasm? ;)

@Emperor Gonzo Noir: Thank you (and thank you for knowing how to spell "definitely" - drives me crazy to see "definately"). ;)
