Notes

  • Blackhawk:
    • One of the Grumman XF5F Skyrockets is now equipped with a rear turret, where Chop Chop mans the heavy machine gun. This modification is not seen again afterward.
    • Blackhawk gets shot down, for at least the fourth time.[1]
    • Blackhawk speaks Japanese.
    • Blackhawk is out of action for several weeks, while he recuperates from his torture ordeal, after the mystery prisoner's super strength drug wears off. Being a Blackhawk is dangerous.
  • Death Patrol
    • Hank, who was absent from last issue, is present in this one. Jackie is still missing.
  • PT Boat
    • Perry is still an Ensign and Paul is still a Lieutenant
    • Paul is hospitalized again.
  • Secret War News
    • "This is an actual story based upon inside facts gathered from U.S.N. Information Bureaus."
    • At this story's end, Mussolini is still alive but under arrest.
  • The Sniper :
    • Suratai makes his third appearance. No other adversary of the Sniper has even made a second.
    • He apparently dies at the end of this story, but the closing blurb raises the question of his return. He is last seen, alive and at large, in a canyon which is then flooded with poison gas.
  • Also featured in this issue of Military Comics were:
    • Johnny Doughboy by Bernard Dibble
    • "Heart of a Correspondent" (text story)
