Cocco Bill #17 (1967) FIN versionCocco Bill #17:
"Il Cocco bello il brutto e il cattivo"

© 1967. Presumly 3 wide strips per page. No page numbering or signagure. At the end of each page holds a piece of paper (for page number or signature?). 29 pgs.

Reprint changes (page altering):
FIN: First two strips are okay, but the rest of the frames are rearranged in a comic book format; not even nearly in good order.
YSL: All frames rearranged for comic book format. Re-edited almost every single frame!


Cocco Bill is the good. He faces the bad and the ugly. Later he faces also a puma and Indians, an ant and a treasure. But there is also a black dressed shooter. Is there really in the end a time to bury a tomahawk?

Cocco Bill.
