There is so much here I don't know where to start.

The outfit, the character art, the really completely unexpected twist...The fact that China is given it's own hero during World War II is also notable.

Once Upon a time in China, 1944... )

Were you lacking badass anti-heroines in you life? Here, let me help.

This is Fear. She likes guns, adventure, and v-necks. You can read more about her here, but her exciting introduction is below.

I didn't care for what DC did with the Blackhawks. Putting it simply, I think it ranged from dull in the 1960s to "you should just let it die with some dignity" almost anytime after that. That said I do love Zinda Blake, Lady Blackhawk. I really do. At least I love her modem incarnation. Yes, there are some things I'd rather not talk about, but when so many different writers handle these characters you have to have some give.

Have some scans light backstory )
Meet "The Blonde Bomber."

In Military Comics #20 (1943) a woman appears who attempts to become the first woman member of the Blackhawks. She looks and behaves will Zinda will almost two decades later.

Skip the back story and read the scans. That's why you're here right? )

Read Blackhawk: The Man in the Iron Mask (part 1)

Blackhawk: The Man in the Iron Mask (part 2)

Or spoil yourself below, if you hate glorious sagas of adventure.

Six months has passed since the battle that took Andre. The Blackhawks have retuned to the area in memorial only to meet with deadly foes. They are saved by man whose head has been encased in an iron mask. They find this savior is their fallen friend, Andre. Andre has been horrifyingly disfigured by the circumstances of his supposed death, and has doomed himself to always wear the mask.
In attempt to save their teammate, the Blackhawks rescue a plastic surgeon from the axis powers only to find him to have gone mad while a prisoner.

EDIT: Fixed

Is there a bit of hope? )

Read Blackhawk: The Man in the Iron Mask (part 1)

Or by in after a short summery below, if you're uncool that way.

Six months (and six issues) have passed since the battle that took Andre. The Blackhawks have returned to the area in memorial...but danger awaits them!

I has posted this on old s_d but it bears restoring.

This epic tale starts in Military Comics #3 which introduces “Chop-Chop.” Why they chose this plot to go with that introduction, I will forever wonder. Chop-chop will spend most of the issue stabbing at any drama that might hit the page. This is listed as being by Will Eisner, it more likely by Bob Powell or Dick French. Art is by Chuck Cuidera.

Oh, and chop-chop gets his own post later, so save up your thoughts.

Also posted here (word for word this time because I am lazy).

"He was a man in total control - unapproachable, unforgiving, unfathomable. He was his own law and his own morality. He lived in a world dominated by an atmosphere of fatalism. He was the first comic book anti-hero." -- Jim Steranko's History of Comics
