Blackhawk in "The Red Kamakaze Terror" (Quality; 1956)

Today the Catacombs presents the first of two Cold War adventures of the legendary fighter aces of WWII that will be featured this week. A traitorous Chinese general is working for the Communists against the Taiwanese air force in “The Red Kamakaze Terror” from Blackhawk #105 (Oct. 1956); originally published by Quality Comics 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!
