Marvel Comics Revives 'The Rawhide Kid'


Joe Quesada
*Editor in Chief, Marvel Comics

Marvel Comics is reviving its 1950s western comic book The Rawhide Kid with a modern twist. During his first incarnation, the Rawhide Kid was known for his sharp shooting skills as well as his shyness around the ladies. Now we know the reason for that awkwardness: the Rawhide Kid is gay. Joe Quesada, Marvel Comics' editor in chief, joins Neal Conan to talk about the company's decision to revive the character.
