Cocco Bill is an Italian comics character by Benito Jacovitti. He is the star of a parody Western comic set in hypothetical places in the Far West. He is a hot-tempered gunslinger who drinks chamomile tea. Occasionally mocked for this, Bill responds with violence. Despite these outbursts, Cocco Bill is a good guy, and always helps sheriffs to capture criminals.[1]

Cocco Bill's horse is called Trottalemme (which literally means "trot slowly"). The animal reasons like humans, smokes cigarettes, drinks tequila and also has dreams at night.

Style[edit]

As in most Jacovitti's comics, the page is full of strange things: all around the place one can find salami (sometimes legged), worms with legs and hats, fish bones (typically close to the artist's signature), as well as horses with only two legs ridden by a man with four legs, and other absurdities.
