Notes

  • Blackhawk:
    • Japanese reconnaissance planes have earlier mapped the location of the newest Blackhawk base. However there is a decoy airfield, elsewhere on Blackhawk Island, with the real base very well camouflaged.
    • Stanislaus's vision is restored surgically, with corneas transplanted from a dog.
    • Like Andre before him,[1] Stanislaus has been apparently killed,[2] then months later returned to the team.[3]
  • Death Patrol
    • First issue for Al Stahl as writer/artist.
    • Jackie is still absent.
  • Last issue for Bart Tumey art and story on Private Dogtag, replaced next issue by Milt Stein and M.W. Wellman.
  • P.T. Boat:
    • The third page of this story has no connection to anybody or anything else in this story, and takes place in Burma.
    • As usual, Ensigns Tobias and Harvey seem to be the entire crew of their PT Boat, and as usual, they wear their dress white uniforms into combat.
    • Page 9 panel 7: The "shoulderboards" on both of their dress uniforms display the rank of "Ensign." In earlier stories one of them was a Lieutenant, and in even earlier stories both of them were Lieutenants. Next issue, with no explanation, they'll be Lieutenants again.
  • Secret War News
    • "This is an actual story based upon inside facts gathered from U.S.N. Information Bureaus."
    • Last issue for Fred Guardineer art and story, replaced next issue by Manly Wade Wellman and Bill Quackenbush.
    • One page of this story appears twice, both in and out of sequence, here and in the P.T. Boat story.
  • The Sniper
    • Suratai the Slayer makes his sixth appearance. It is not explained how he got out of his predicament from Military Comics #30, but it is belatedly explained how he got out of the jam that he was in at the end of Military Comics #29. At that time, he had been arrested and imprisoned, for murder, treason, and other charges.
    • As seen earlier, the Sniper has made some special cartridges, with his name etched on them. In this story, some of his guerrillas have taken to wearing the cartridges, on neck chains, as a recognition signal.
  • Also appearing in this issue of Military Comics were:
    • "Trapped-- by Snow" (text story)
    • Johnny Doughboy: "Air Raid" by Bernard Dibble
