    • Six Blaskhawk F-90Cs are destroyed on the ground by Kerentlyan tanks.
    • Blackhawk uses a handgun to kill quite a few Kerentlyan soldiers, but also shoots a pistol out of an enemy's hand, Lone Ranger style.
  • This issue's 4-page Chop Chop story was 5 pages long when it appeared in Blackhawk #43.
  • War Incorporated
    • The self-styled "Mars" in this story is no known relation to anybody else named Mars. Blackhawk calls him "the War Master."
    • Brijal and Zonia have been at peace for 100 years, therefore they are not in Europe.
    • Zonia has a President. Starting on page 6 of this 7-page story, "Brijal" starts to be called "Brojil."
  • King of Blackhawk Island
    • Blackhawk startles the bad guys with a projected slide of Killer Shark, whom he refers to as "Tiger Shark."
