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.

Jungle War Stories~The Village Dunces

One of the few places you'd see mention of our involvement in Viet Nam before late 1964 was in comic books such as Dell's Jungle War Stories.  This story is from issue #5, October 1963. Art is by Maurice Whitman and Vince Colletta. The cover is most likely by Vic Prezio

Have Gum, Will Travel

Have Gun-Will Travel gum cards

Didn't know these existed until recently. Always liked Paladins early first season "work suit"with the little tie. 

 See the tie, get ready to die...

Red Phantom

 For  some reason, the Ghost Who Walks has been shown with a red costume in some parts of the world, instead of the purple we  have seen for 70 or 80 years.
