The Raw Hide Kid cover by Devilpig The Raw Hide Kid cover by Devilpig
This got a lot of media attention because they made a classic character gay. The book was freaking hilarious.

Obviously this was the inspiration for "Brokeback Mountain"

"Rawhide Kid, I wish I could quit you"

Stan Lee would be rolling in his... er... NY mansion?
This is awesome, and I would fave it too if I didn't want to give the wrong idea...
Oh, what the hell!
XD

yeah, one of those four dudes in the background is actually checking him out. The layout for this is reminiscent to the layout of the cover for the counter-fifth detective (100 bullets), I think... but it's still an effective layout, and the gun is priceless.

I remember hearing about this--one half was pissed that they turned a classic character gay, and I believe the other half was pissed that they made the gay character a stereotype. I hope to find it at some point and judge for myself.

Great cover, though. :D

I prefer to think they just made a gay character obvious, but po-tay-to, po-tah-to...

cripes man, again. I didn't know you did this cover. As a request from someone I did a Rawhide Kid sketch card for the Marvel 70th set (the guy was into the older non gay version) and I couldn't find proper ref. I kept seeing this pic but it was tiny.

I had local newspaper interview me at my shop when these came out. The woman that interviewed me was all snarky and clearly anti-gay. It was not a comfortable interview, but this is a fantastic cover!

Nice; I especially like the texture in the face. :) Reminds me of 40's and 50's movie posters.
