*DC: We’re extending our range of these classic characters this week! Commencing in 1982, the revival of Blackhawk by Mark Evanier and Dan Spiegle may seem at odds with our classic comics policy, but this run – acknowledged by rueful DC execs as their ‘best-kept secret’ – ignored all the modernisations. Set in the World War II Era where the characters originated, Evanier and Spiegle both filled out and distilled the essences of Blackhawk and his international team of heroic aviators, as they faced an ever more fantastical succession of menaces – with, all the while, the lethal but fascinating femme fatale Domino opposing them. Combining high adventure, wartime drama, and several shoplifted elements of film noir, this series of Blackhawk is a largely undiscovered treat. Dave Cockrum, Howard Chaykin, Joe Kubert and Gil Kane are among the distinguished cover artists on this labour of love. We have this series from the first revival issue, #251, consecutively through to #265, added to our lists.
