Notes

  • Published by Comic Magazines, Inc.
  • Blackhawk: "Tondeleyo" is partially reprinted in The Blackhawk Archives, Volume One.
    • The proper Grumman XF5F Skyrockets will be back next issue. This issue continues the use of the single-rudder modified version, with the in-line engines.
    • Tondeleyo will be mentioned, by Olaf, in Military Comics #19, but will not be back. We never learn what she was up to, how she arrived on Blackhawk Island, nor why she destroyed Hans Oberst before going after the Blackhawks.
    • The Luftwaffe definitely know the location of Blackhawk Island, and were able to parachute-deliver a written message there, followed later by a squadron of heavy bombers.
    • Chop Chop disobediently pilots one of the Blackhawk fighter-bombers, for the first time. He gets shot down. It's worth remembering that he originally showed up, in Jugoslavia, piloting a home-built airplane.[1]
    • Blackhawk deliberately crashes his fighter-bomber into a heavy bomber.
  • First issue for Private Dogtag, by Bart Tumey. Private Dogtag is in no way related to Dogtag.

Trivia

  • "Tondelayo" (not "Tondeleyo" as in this comic) was the name of an African temptress in the 1942 film White Cargo. In his book History of Comics, Jim Steranko claimed that Blackhawk writer William Woolfolk admitted to ripping off the plot of the film for this issue's story, though Steranko's claim is unverified.
