The Man Called Loco. Texas Rangers in Action #72
cover by Jim Aparo
In my neighborhood, if you go by Loco, you're probably a wannabe Mexican Gangsta. In Charlton comics, you're the dashing western hero from South of the Border.
Pete Morisi drew this little shoot-em-up. Morisi was an NYPD Police Officer who moonlighted as an artist for Charlton, among many others. He signed his work "PAM" to maintain his anonymity (although he didn't connect the lines in the "M", so it sort of looks like "PAIII". Morisi is probably best know today for his creation, Peter Cannon, Thunderbolt.
Here's The Man Called Loco in "Homecoming" from June, 1969.
