Number 2429: “Let me in!” says Blackhawk
Boorn is a crafty wannabe dictator. He looks for the weak leak in the Blackhawk organization, and comes up with the Frenchman, André, who has an eye for beauty. They send Doria, high in the organization, to waylay André, which she does by leaning against a wall, posing as a prostitute (page 4). She tells André she is a secrent [sic] agent. Of course, the rest of the Blackhawks are too smart for that. They see the plot and go after Boorn. Blackhawk doesn’t just knock on Boorn’s door, he knocks the door down.
Reed Crandall did the artwork, and drew the door crashing scene twice, in the story and on the cover. Blackhawk must’ve gone for some liniment for his shoulder after the blow he used for that door.
The story comes from Quality Comics’ Blackhawk #23 (1949).
