Colt .45~ A Matter of Honor

The demographic that would instantly think of a rather nasty beer when hearing COLT .45 probably would not be reading this, so we'll assume you know that  Colt .45 (also known as The Colt Cousins) was an American Western series which aired on ABC between October 1957 and September 1960.
Dell produced nine issues of the comic (3 under the Four Color numbering). This story is from issue #4,  February 1960 and was drawn by John Ushler.


  1. Colt .45, the malt liquor, hit the market around 1964, so, if you remember one, you probably remember both.

    Ironically, the cap pistol marketed by Hubley as a tie-in was the Model 1860 Army .44, not the SAA .45 in the show.

    1. More trivia: Colt 45 was named after running back #45 Jerry Hill of the 1963 Baltimore Colts, at least according to Pabst's website.
