Notes

  • Horde of the Bat
    • Vampira's Bat-Winged Raiders, and their pressurized flying suits, are captured by the Blackhawks. Unlike her henchmen, Vampira was not seen to be captured on-panel. But she hasn't returned in any later stories.
  • Hitler's Daughter
    • In a deceptive ploy, Hendrickson's fellow Blackhawks fake shooting him down, by shooting some real bullet holes into his Lockheed jet. He then fakes a crash landing by crashing onto the ground. This was Hendrickson's second plane crash.[1]
    • Hendrickson carries a miniature tape recorder in his boot heel.
  • Revolt of the Slave Workers
    • The Blackhawks brought along a supply of Truth Serum on their incursion to Poland.
  • Also featured in this issue of Blackhawk was:
    • Blackhawk: "The Impossible Feat" (text story)

Trivia

  • Except for the color of their uniforms, this issue's villainesses Communa and Hitla look exactly alike.
  • For the second time, [2] three "femme fatale" villainess3es appear in the same issue, and again none of them falls in love with Blackhawk.
