Blackhawk in "The Master of Treachery" (Quality; 1956)

It’s a day later than intended, but here is the second of this weeks promised Cold War adventures of the legendary fighter aces of WWII. The Blackhawks travel to Morocco to help the French forces against a bandit financed by Communists in “The Master of Treachery” also from Blackhawk #105 (Oct. 1956); originally published by Quality Comics, written by Dick Wood and illustrated by Dick Dillin (future Justice League of America artist) & Chuck Cuidera. The Blackhawk Squadron, usually just called the Blackhawks, were a small team of World War II-era pilots of varied nationalities, each typically known under a single name (either their given name or their surname): Blackhawk; Chop Chop; Stanislaus; Hendrickson; Chuck; Olaf; Andre. The Catacombs acknowledges "Comic Book Plus" as the source of this classic comic story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belongs to the original publishers and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!
