"Small Town Hero in Demand" from El Diablo vol.1 #8 (DC, 1990) by Gerard Jones, Mike Parobeck and John Nyberg
El Diablo is on my list of series I missed the first time around, but would like to read today. Things that attract me to it include Mike Parobeck art, the Golden Age Vigilante as an overweight mentor figure, and the fact that this is basically a precursor to the current Blue Beetle (El Diablo is a latino character with a large cast of characters and his stories take place in Texas). I know it's not a modern classic or anything, but I bet it's a pleasant reading experience. I'll talk about it on Siskoid's Blog of Geekery one day, you mark my words.
