Notes

  • Blackhawk:
    • Olaf mentions Tondeleyo, the mysterious woman from Military Comics #14 who sapped the Blackhawks' will to fight, though her name is misspelled "Tondelyo". Then again, Olaf speaks with a pretty thick accent, and that could just be his way of saying "Tondeleyo."
    • Blackhawk gets shot down, for the third time.[1] He also crashes. Over the course of his long combat career, Blackhawk survived at least seventeen aircraft crashes.[2]
    • King Cobra is not thought to be related to or affiliated with the Communist King Cobra of 1952,[3] nor of the female pirate Cobra of 1948.[4]
  • First issue for Fred Guardineer as writer/artist on Pacific Patrol, which now contracts back to one page.
    • No claim is made about this story being true.
  • First issue for Fred Guardineer as writer/artist on Secret War News, replacing Al McWilliams.
    • "This is an actual story based upon inside facts gathered from U.S.N. Information Bureaus."
    • Maybe so, but Wikipedia's article on this raid says 6 bombers, vice 12, went on the raid, and that these bombers were borrowed from the RAF. Six bombers went in and three came back, including Capt. Kegelman's plane, which was very badly damaged.
  • Last issue for Shot and Shell by Klaus Nordling.
    • We are not told how or why Shot and Shell are in the Arctic area, or where they got that airplane that they crash into the Arctic Ocean.
    • Sam and Slim are last seen, with their new Norwegian friend, paddling an ice floe, towards a Norwegian patriot guerrilla boat.
  • The Sniper still has a secret lair in the Eiffel Tower, first seen Military Comics #14. Before that, he simply roved.
    • He also now has a fighter plane, which he keeps hidden, in or very near to Paris. This fighter plane was left atop Captain Hunz's Flying Battleship when it was destroyed.
  • Also featured in this issue of Military Comics were:
    • Johnny Doughboy by Bernard Dibble
    • Blackhawk: "The Hawk and the Dragon" (text story)

Trivia
