Notes

  • Atlantic Patrol
    • Lieutenant Knowles and his B-17 were assigned to the Royal Air Force's Coastal Command at the time of these encounters. He and his crew went down in the North Sea following a mission over Germany, in 1944.
  • Blackhawk
    • First issue for the new Blackhawk Island, in the Pacific Ocean.
    • Olaf gets a bullet wound, his first, in the shoulder. Andre also gets bullet-wounded, for the third time,[1] in the leg. Blackhawk gets a stab wound that leaves him hospitalized. Being a Blackhawk is dangerous.
    • Blackhawk lands on a Japanese aircraft carrier, refuels his Skyrocket, and flies away. He's done this before. In Military Comics #11, the whole squadron landed on a German aircraft carrier, refueled, and flew away.
  • Death Patrol
    • On the 1st panel of the 4th page, Jackie breaks the Fourth Wall to alert the reader to an upcoming surprise.
    • Boris and Gramps are both absent from this episode, or at least aren't seen in the art. Only five of the custom fighter planes are visible, which is consistent with Del, Hank, Hotintot, Jackie, and Yogi as flying.
  • Secret War News
    • "For reasons of Naval secrecy, Military Comics is withholding the name of the American ship and it will be referred to as Battleship X, ..."
    • "This is an actual story based upon inside facts gathered from U.S.N. Information Bureaus."
    • Maybe so but the only U.S. battleship present at the Battle of Guadalcanal was the USS North Carolina, commanded by Captain George H. Fort. Battleship X and the North Carolina both pack 16-inch guns.
  • Sniper
    • Japanese soldiers in this story talk in a comically pidgin version of English.
  • Also featured in this issue of Military Comics were:
