(See also Uncle Sam Quarterly, Military Comics, Modern Comics, Blackhawk (DC) #108 onwards)
The Blackhawks team made its original appearance in another Quality title, Military Comics in August 1941. Military Comics ran for 43 issues and was renamed Modern Comics with issue #44 (Nov 1945). In the meantime, the Blackhawks also began to appear in this, their own title. The numbering took over from a cancelled Quarterly title, Uncle Sam Quarterly, that had ran for 8 issues. The first nine Blackhawk issues, #9-18, were published quarterly but then from issue #19 until #33 (Oct 1950) the series was published every two months. With the end of Modern Comics (#102), also in Oct 1950, the Blackhawks were making one less comic appearance, so from #34 the Blackhawk title went monthly until its last issue (#107) in December 1956. By this time Quality had folded and their titles acquired by National Periodical Publications (later DC). DC continued the title, without a break, from issue #108 (Jan 1957) and it ran for a number of years after that.
