Notes

  • Malenkov's Merchant of Murder
    • Unlike most Blackhawk stories, this one is set in a Real World country, Iran. In 1954, Iran was a U.S. ally, and Georgy Malenkov was running the Soviet Union.
    • Soviet Agent Vasnish, of whom we've never heard before nor will again, only apparently dies, according to Sabo Teur (page 6 panel 4).
    • Blackhawk gets head-konked unconscious with a rifle butt. This is his sixty-sixth concussion.[1]
    • Blackhawk gets a bullet wound to the head, but it does not knock him out. This is at least the ninth time he's been bullet-wounded.[2]
  • Red China Hatchet Man
    • That's Comrade Klang's job title, a big promotion for an ex-Tong executioner. He's now in charge of purging all non-Communist Chinese. He makes colorful and skillful use of hatchets in his work.
    • In the next-to-last panel, Comrade Klang's boss, "Comrade General," is getting piled onto by his former hostages, so he's in serious danger, but he also has a lot of troops right there in the same camp, so his fate is ambiguous. He doesn't look all that much like Mao, especially his haircut, and he's never called anything but "General," so his identity is ambiguous also.
  • Twenty-Four Hours To Doom
    • In the 3rd panel of the 3rd page, Blackhawk refers to the U.W. by its initials, which did not happen very often.
  • Also appearing in this issue of Blackhawk was:
    • "Mission of Death" (text story)

Trivia

  • No trivia.
