Subj: Blackhawk #182

I continue to pick up affordable issues of Blackhawk and tonight I read Blackhawk #182 from 1963.Although Blackhawk was not one of the most memorable titles of the DC Silver Age, it was one of the few DC titles that was published on a monthly basis. I must admit that I was not a regular buyer of this title back in the day but I have grown to like the stories over the past few years that I have been collecting it. This particular issue has three stories.The first, "The Festival of Fear", has a science-fiction basis with an accidental scientific resolution. The second, "Lady Blachawk's Stand-In", is one of those quaint Silver Age stories in which someone (in this case, a college friend), substitutes for the heroine with initially disastrous but then later, positive, results. The last story is the cover-feature,"The Curse of the Rajah's Ring". As implied in the story's title , this tale is supernatural based but the resolution is cleverly not. Three stories with something for everyone - That is what I think added to the longevity of this title. Regarding this issue though, I would probably feature the first story on the cover . The inclusion of the spongeland with the sky train and space capsule appearing in the story would make an interesting cover . Altogether, Blachawk is an enjoyable team series to collect.
