Notes

  • The Schemes of Boorn
    • This issue's first story is the second appearance of the North American F-86 Sabre jets, which were first seen in Modern Comics #81 (Jan 1949). The Blackhawks would fly these Sabrejets until Modern Comics #97 (May 1950) and Blackhawk #31 (June 1950). No dialogue or caption in this story, or issue, refers to the change in aircraft types, and the jets are never even identified as F-86 Sabres, but just called "planes" through the whole issue. In fact, they are never identified by model or by manufacturer in any issue of this series.
    • The villains in this story don't call each other "Comrade" or wave red flags but they do talk up "our great movement for world conquest!"
    • Andre gets head-konked unconscious with a pistol butt. This is his sixth cranial concussion.[1]
  • The Flying Pirates of Captain Harpy:
    • Blackhawk gets head-konked with a wrench, and falls down, but doesn't black out. This is his thirty-third cranial concussion.[2]
  • Also featured in this issue of Blackhawk was:
    • Blackhawk: "Piracy, Modern Style" (text story)
      • Like the comics stories in this issue, this text story also gives no information on the manufacturer or model of the Blackhawks' jet warplanes.
