We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:
|Proposed Title:||Zorro's Renegades.||.|
|TPB Cover:||Zorro (1993) #1.|
|Collecting 14 Issues:||Zorro (1993) #0, 1-11; Dracula Versus Zorro (1993) #1-2.||.|
|Covers (click to enlarge):|
I loved this series, because it gave Zorro so much more than Captain Monastario and Sgt. Garcia. He gained an honest to goodness rogues gallery that included Machete, Moonstalker, the breakout Lady Rawhide, and even Dracula himself. It was a shame that the combination of Topps ending and Lady Rawhide eclipsing Zorro in popularity ended this series. It was well written and beautifully rendered. I still miss this series, and unfortunately, it has only been collected in black and white (and one of those trades was named Zorro's Renegades). I would love a full color TPB of this.
For the cover, I'd be tempted to go with Zorro #0 or #8, but on #0, he's missing his cape, and on #8, his horse looks fat. The Zorro #2 cover is good, but the cape doesn't look like classic Zorro. So out of all of them I'd have to go with the cover to Zorro #1. It's an awesome use of lighting and silhouette, that features the three best features of Zorro: his costume, his horse, and his sword.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
