The West is going to get wild with innuendo June 9 as Marvel reintroduces its most clean cut cowboy in "The Rawhide Kid
" #1 written by Ron Zimmerman with art by Howard Chaykin and a cover by John Cassaday.
Treading on some familiar themes began by Zimmerman in 2003's "MAX" series, the not necessarily "out," but certainly proud version of the Rawhide kid is back in action.
Here's Marvel's official synopsis:
The best-dressed gunslinger the Wild West ever knew is back in the saddle again -- and this time, he's riding with a posse! That's right, pardners, it's a brand new rip-roaring adventure of the Rawhide Kid! When Wyatt and Morgan Earp are taken hostage by Cristo Pike and his pack of pistoleros, Rawhide has no choice but to put together a posse of the greatest western heroes in the Marvel Universe - to rescue the Earp brothers and bring Pike to justice. Enter: Kid Colt, Doc Holliday, Annie Oakley, Billy the Kid, Red Wolf and the most overrated gun in the West: The Two-Gun Kid!
