Notes

  • The Attack To End the World:
    • United World Headquarters resembles United Nations Headquarters, but is located in an unidentified city (which looks like London, vaguely). U-W has a President.
    • An artificially-generated tidal wave slams into the city and smashes some big buildings; thousands die. It's an extremely brazen act of war. And at the end of the story, the supposedly extraterrestrial alien villain is exposed as a Soviet fake. Afterward this is never mentioned again.
    • Blackhawk Jets can be controlled from the ground via Blackhawk belt radios. Six of these planes are destroyed in this story, but the team has at least two more in an underground hangar.
    • So after this story, the Reds know how to build gigantic, nearly invulnerable, 2000 mph spaceships, capable of hovering motionless and silent, with super-advanced weapons, and they also now know the location of Blackhawk Island. It took an atomic antiaircraft shell to destroy this vessel. It is not known how many more of these ships the Russians built, but none has been seen since this incident.
    • Kalmut also equipped his troops with deadly ray guns; these have also not been seen since.
  • Chop Chop: Escape from Ughastan
    • Most of this story's plot is re-used from the Chop Chop story in Blackhawk #37, in which the elopers slipped away to "Manaloa Island".
  • The Chinese-built rocket-powered Flying Buzz Saws were fast and agile enough to destroy a Blackhawk Lockheed F-90C, and powerful enough to sever a battleship in half.
    • One more Blackhawk Lockheed F-90C is destroyed. Stan is shot down for the first time.
  • Blackhawk Loses His Wings:
    • Blackhawk gets a shrapnel wound to his head, and soon afterward blacks out. No metal was lodged in his head, but that's his fifty-sixth concussion.[1]
    • The foreign-sponsored "revolutionaries" undermining Balvania are never identified as "Communists" or "Reds".
  • Also featured in this issue of Blackhawk was: "Bombs Away" (text story)
