    That is good news. The prior series did leave rather a lot hanging when it went on hiatus. Of course, Wagner will have to be careful when writing not to shake off new readers with too many references to the prior series, so I would expect the first issue or so to be a bit of a recap.

    Default Prayers: Answered / Zorro Rides Again!

    The last ish of Wagner's Zorro was pretty epic if I do say so, so words don't really encapsulate how heart-wrenching it was to learn that this would be the last installment of Zorro...or at least for some time.

    According to ads in the recent ship of Dynamites, my heart can now begin to mend as Wagner wraps up(still sad) his incredible take on the early days of the Zorro mythos.

    Heres to the universe hearing the cries of the little guy & to dreams coming true!

    Default Was this Lone Ranger/Zorro cover A ever produced?

    Still bugs me that Dynamite insist on ridiculously portraying Zorro without pistols. And I really hated the way he went out in that story, .....

    Default Why dosn't Zorro carry his gun/pistolas...?

    Granted it's likely single shot black-powder pistols, but that would have been the weapon of the time.
    It still bugs me that Dynamite insists on ridiculously portraying Zorro without pistols. And I really hated the way he went out in that Lone Ranger crossover , like he wouldn't update his arsenal and ignore that guns had advanced. He's not Batman who refuses to carry a gun, he uses a lethal weapons, he can use them without killing, and he'd have access to the best!

    McCulley's version routinely carried a gun (the infamous "Devil's weapon"),
    Fairbanks' version carried a gun,
    Tyrone Powers version carried a gun.
    In the ZFL serials he used dual pistols.
    It's like I get he prefers to force a sword duel, he's famous for the whip and sword, he'd rather humiliate and mark them than kill, that's his thing, but it was never implied that he wouldn't ever use or carry pistols. In fact he was proficient with both! It was never one or the other, that's ridiculous.

    *"The first move from any of you, seņores, means that I fire. I am expert with this you have termed the devil's weapon..." - Johnston McCulley

    Robinhood is most recognized and celebrated for the bow, does that mean he shouldn't have his sword. Tarzan's popular imagery is that he swings from a vine, does that mean he can't walk!? The image of Captain Midnight is flying a plane does that mean he can't drive!
    One shouldn't make the other just illogically disappear, It's like people just blankly forgot he'd carry pistols, cause the sword imagery was so powerful, but it was never at the exclusion of the other, and it kills me that Dynamite who is steeped in the gritty pulps would perpetuate this ridiculous idea.

    The Dell pre-Disney straight McCulley adaptations - [IMG]http://img510.imageshack.us/img510/4421/zorrodellgundevil.jpg[/IMG]

    The pistol is part of his established arsenal, and why wouldn't it be. He is profisiant with it, he has the speed , dexterity and skill with a gun/pistola that rivals the likes of the Lone Ranger and Phantom's famous non lethal trick shots.
    It's part of what he does, and he was doing it before them, why continue to rob him of this aspect, literally deny this other tool in his belt.

    I don't think you will find this satisfying, but I will try because you are obviously a Zorro fan and that makes you my friend:

    You are right that Zorro did carry guns in a number of incarnations, including McCulley's conception. But Zorro has always changed certain details over time. If you have ever read any of McCulley's later Zorro stories you know that he himself altered aspects of the character as he went along. The most famous example is that he started to have Diego do sleight of hand magic in response to Douglas Fairbanks' portrayal. And he originally just called him Diego Vega--the use of the name Diego de la Vega was a later version. Duncan Regehr's version was much more interested in science than his predecessors had been. Each generation makes its own Zorro.

    All of which leads me to the DE version, which also added and changed details of the character. The Zorro: Year One run that DE did (I don't think it was actually called that, but that is what it essentially was) went into his training with a secret society in Spain dedicated to operating in the shadows to secure justice--and it had all sorts of interesting rules concerning honor.

    So, bottom line, this Zorro does not use guns because he does not deem it honorable. Or, at least, that's how I have been viewing it.

    I think the right hand one was--in fact, I thought I had it but I can't find it right now. I don't recall ever seeing the left hand cover before--but, damn, I want it.
