Let's be clear: the entire Tomahawk series, including World's Finest appearances, should be reprinted. Since I probably won't live to see that happen, I'll settle for a nice, slim volume of Son of Tomahawk stories. Even though it represents a sort of coda for the long running series, it is actually a great place to start. Robert Kanigher had a brilliant idea by transporting the Tomahawkverse 20 years into the future, with stories now focused on Hawk, the son of the now grizzled Revolutionary War vet. It's a real change of pace from the earlier series, and the stories are uniformly strong.
Much like it did with Bat Lash and later with Jonah Hex, DC was trying to rejuvenate the western during this era. In the end, it turned out to be a bit of a failed experiment, with only Hex finding commercial success. That being said, these are interesting books worthy of reprinting. The Kubert covers are full of drama, and the Frank Thorne's interior artwork is a perfect fit for Kanigher's topical and occasionally preachy tales. It has become a mere footnote in the history of the DCU, but it is certainly worth preserving and getting into the hands of new readers. The originals are still worth owning, as the 52 pagers are full of tough to find reprints, but a new and glossy trade would look great on my bookshelf.
