Notes

  • This is the first issue of Blackhawk to display the Comics Code Authority's Seal of Approval
  • Inferno From the Sky
    • Per the 6th panel of the 3rd page of this story, the 1955 version of Blackhawk Island is within 70 miles of this point: "Longitude 180, Latitude 15"
      • Longitude 180 is the International Date Line, running down the mid-Pacific Ocean.
      • Latitude 15 is in the tropical part of the South Pacific Occean.
    • The Communist villains in this story wear bright red uniforms.
  • Sea Wolf
    • This story introduces the Hawksub, which at first is called the "Hawkmarine." The seven Blackhawks build this super submarine, in an isolated shipyard. We are not told how long this takes.
    • Sea Wolf's submariners wear orange uniforms emblazoned with a wolf-head logo, like a parody of the Blackhawks' hawk-head logo.
    • Miss Ackhiem claims that the Sea Wolf has 60 U-boats at his disposal, but she is lying about a couple of other things in that conversation, like her identity, so this figure is suspect.
    • Blackhawk is head-punched unconscious, from behind, by a coward. This is his sixty-seventh concussion.[1]
  • Ordeal for a Blackhawk
    • Le Sabre is supposedly Andre's brother Pierre, who died in a concentration camp during WWII, but turns out to be lyng about that, and that Andre's brother is really dead.
