Synopsis for Will Bragg: "The Vacuum Cleaner Salesman"
Will brags his way into a situation where he accidentally invents a super-duper powerful vacuum cleaner, and amid a sales pitch it vacuums the clothes right off of a skeptical young housewife.

- This story is the nineteenth appearance of the team's North American F-86 Sabrejets, and so far no character and no caption has mentioned the change, or called the new aircraft anything more specific than "Blackhawk Planes." They are equipped with JATO tubes, and can take off almost vertically. They still have internal bomb-bays, and one carries an experimental new weapon: a bomb loaded with bright green dye.
- According to Blackhawk, Jugaria is the "last stronghold of absolute monarchy." The nominal head of state is a Countess, while the Prime Minister's office is hereditary, and runs in the Jugar family.
- Blackhawk and Olaf both get head-konked unconscious. These are Blackhawk's thirty-fifth concussion, and Olaf's third, respectively. Being a Blackhawk is dangerous.
- Also featured in this issue of Modern Comics was:
- Blackhawk: "Tree of Evil" (text story).
- The gag in the Will Bragg story, where a lady's clothes get vacuumed off her by an insanely over-powerful vacuum cleaner, is also the punch line of the first story in Torchy #1, Nov 1949.
