Why is it that towns named "Paradise" usually are anything but?
While I'm not sure the syntax quite works, I think you'll get the idea...
The box-office success of the 1969 Western movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, inspired Skywald Comics to make the duo the title protagonists of two of the five Western titles they launched in 1971.
Oddly, instead of Butch and the Kid headlining a book together, they were each given their own titles, along with new sidekicks/partners!
Butch's new buddy, as seen in this story from #1, was Lance Carter, a "loveable rogue" but with a penchant for getting them both into trouble and not based on any real-life Westerner.
The book lasted only three issues, with the Sundance Kid making a guest-appearance in an attempt to bolster sales.
