- Last bi-monthly issue.
- Oracle of Delya:
- First appearance in this magazine of the Lockheed F-90Bs, replacing the team's North American F-86 Sabres. The publishing-time first appearance of the F-90B was in Modern Comics #98, June 1950. As with the earlier Sabre jets, these aircraft are called only "Blackhawk Planes" for the time being, and not identified by manufacturer, model number, or brand.
- Delya might be the name of a nation, a region, or the cave itself. People around the Oracle's cave look Asian. Oracle herself looks European. Two thousand miles away, the Latino tyrant Gregorio is gunned down in his own capital city, which is not named. If all these things are true, then it seems as if Delya is in northeastern China or southeastern Russia and Gregorio's country is someplace in or near the Philippines.
- This issue's Chop Chop story is reprinted in Blackhawk #81.
- The plane that air-drops Chop Chop into Muchogusto appears to be an XF5F Skyrocket.
- Crypt of Terror:
- Blackhawk gets head-konked for at least the forty-first time, knocked out, with a big rock.
- Frayman claimed to have found a secret ancient Egyptian formula, for "the force that built the pyramids," a fuel, by which they powered a vast mechanical hoist. Blackhawk intended to turn over the formula to the government for the benefit of the world. It was never heard of again.
