Bring on the Back-ups: "Butch Cassidy in Paradise!" by Tom Sutton

Here's one from the "They don't make 'em like that anymore" Department: "Butch Cassidy in Paradise!", written and drawn by Tom Sutton (with inks by John Tartaglione), the back-up tale from Skywald's Butch Cassidy #1 (March 1971). Don't try to figure it out, just go with it and enjoy. 'Cause like Butch himself would say, "It doesn't matter. I don't know where we've been and I've just been there."

Yeah, Skywald released this mag based on the popularity of the then-(semi)new Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid flick, but strangely enough, they split Butch and Sundance into their own separate titles with totally different sidekicks. Whazzupwitdat?
