  • This issue's Chop Chop story is reprinted in Blackhawk #77.
  • Killers of the Kremlin
    • Chop Chop catches a thrown bomb, outfielder style, and lobs it back to its throwers just before it explodes.
    • Danya's submarine crew was captured alive.
    • Per page 6, panel 3, Andre, Chuck, Olaf, and Stanislaus all get head-konked unconscious in the same melee. This is Andre's fifteenth concussion,[2] Chuck's seventh,[3] Olaf's ninth,[4] and Stan's sixth concussion.[5]
  • World-Wide Manhunt
    • The Blackhawks attack and sink a conventional Soviet warship, and a super-weaponized Soviet space station. These seem like acts of war, but World War III does not break out.
