Cocco Bill #18 (1967)Cocco Bill #18:
"Coccobillevolissime volmente"

© 1967. Printed as a spread since most of signatures are on every even page on the first strip [JAC 67], and page numberings on the every odd page on the very lower right corner on a worm. The opening page is one huge pager frame with signature in the lower right corner (no worm on it). Other pages are a common comics story. Opening pager is out counted from page numbering which counts a spread as one entity (i.e. there exists one pager and 9 spreads, each spread counted individually). 19 pgs.

Reprint changes (page altering):
Jacovitti Magazine #11: All spread numbers erased, except one on page 17 and it says, "8".


A halfly escaped bandit terrorizes a town. The lower half of him is already captured. Cocco Bill meets also Osusanna and he will be terrorized by her.
