Notes

  • Blackhawk:
    • The fictional Haggari Desert would seem to be in, or near, either French Chad or British Sudan, based on having a desert-Arab population in one part of the country and a rain-forest Black population in another part, and exposure of the same Western colonialists to both parts. The Fort at Sharkhan flies the French flag, making Chad, or French Equatorial Africa the more likely real-world basis for this fake location.
    • The Black African Tribesmen in this story speak in regular-guy language and not in the kind of stereotypical backward-foreigner-babytalk that had been normal in many comics, including this one, up until now (1949). On the other hand, Chop Chop still does, and so does Olaf to a lesser extent.
    • This story is the eleventh appearance of the team's North American F-86 Sabrejets, and so far no character and no caption has mentioned the replacement of the Grumman Skyrockets, or called the new aircraft anything but "airplanes" or "planes."
  • Also featured in this issue of Modern Comics was: "Pinetop Clue" (text story, featuring Blackhawk).
