Synopsis for Chop Chop: "Money To Burn"

This story is reprinted from Blackhawk #55.

Chop Chop receives a telegram that a distant relative has died and left everything to him. Chop Chop goes to see the lawyer Wong Fu in Chinatown in America. The lawyer informs him that his relative kept his money in the attic and there is too much to count. Chop Chop checks into the largest suite in the best hotel and throws a large party. As the party is breaking up, the lawyer arrives with the money. Unfortunately, it is old Chinese bank notes, and though there are several large bags, it amounts to less than $100 in US currency. Chop Chop must work in the hotel kitchen to pay the bills.

Notes

  • Chop Chop: "Money To Burn" is reprinted from Blackhawk #55, but with the first page heavily re-drawn, by a different artist.
  • Destroyer Drill
    • Six Blackhawk jets, working in tandem, can manipulate a steel mesh "submarine net" into position and drop it onto a moving target.
    • General Panic wears a big red button on his gray uniform, emblazoned with a Hammer And Sickle.
    • Blackhawk has a jacket with a built-in helium-inflating gas balloon, for high-altitude aerial escapes.
  • Wolf Pack
    • Teutonia's President Konrad seems to be based on the real-world West German President, Konrad Adenauer.
    • The Impersonator is a great deal more physically fit than the real-world Herman Goering.
    • The Blackhawks were sleep-gassed, and the villains passed up the chance to kill or capture them, but got away with the Lend-Lease loot.
    • Blackhawk gets head-konked unconscious, with a rifle stock. This is his sixty-fourth concussion.[1]
    • The Blackhawk Squadron's distinctive Lockheed F-90 interceptors do not appear in this story.
  • Human Bomb
    • This 1954 Human Bomb is not the same guy as Roy Lincoln, the super-heroic Human Bomb of the early 1940s.
    • This villain's real name is Von Tepp, and his monocle is in his right eye, only now he's a Communist, and not dead, unlike the original Captain von Tepp.
  • Also featured in this issue of Blackhawk was:
    • "The Reds Died Screaming" (text story)
