Notes

  • Fang the Merciless
    • Evil Fang is the daughter of Fang (and, yes, her first name is Evil).
    • This is the fourth of Killer Shark's five appearances.[1]
    • This is the second of King Cobra's two appearances. At the end of his first appearance, in Blackhawk #58, he got shot thru an Electric Cannon, and died. His return is not explained.
    • Killer Shark definitely returns next issue, in Blackhawk #81.
    • Blackhawk gets shot down, for the nineteenth time.[2]
    • Blackhawk survives his eleventh plane crash.[3]
    • Chop Chop survives his fourth plane crash..[4]
    • Blackhawk gets head-konked unconscious with a blunt-tipped arrow. This is his sixty-fifth concussion.[5]
    • Chuck gets head-konked unconscious with a blunt-tipped arrow. This is his eighth concussion.[6]
  • The Iron Curtain Destroyer was a Polish Underground mass-escape vehicle, assembled from a bulletproof railroad car, powered by four Soviet tank engines, and armed with salvaged warplane gunnery.
  • Death-Digger
    • The Doctor Death appearing in this story is not the same villain as "Dr. Death" who lived and died in "The Isle of the Damned," the 4th story of Blackhawk #62, and also is not known to be related to or affiliated with any of the "Doctor Death"s from any parallel universes.
    • The underground lair of the Death-Digger is a "submerged volcano," with stalactites and stalagmites.
    • One of Dr. Death's soldiers addresses another as "Comrade," but in that context they are comrades. No Communist insignia is visible.
    • Blackhawk not only re-uses his jacket-with-built-in-helium-inflating-balloon gimmick, he actually refers to the "Destroyer Drill," the recent story in which it first appeared. (It was the 1st story in Blackhawk #79). This was very rare in Quality Comics of this era.
    • Doctor Death is aboard the Death-Digger when it bores into a gigantic vat of acid and is destroyed, thus is presumed dead.
  • Also featured in this issue of Blackhawk was:
    • "Bird of Evil" (non-Blackhawk text story)

Trivia

  • No trivia.
