Air Fighters: Lady Blackhawk - Blackhawk #133 (Feb. 1959)

In this episode, I'll be taking a look at the inauspicious debut of Birds of Prey's Lady Blackhawk !

Not yet the kickass bombshell ace she'd one day be as written by Gail Simone, in her 1st appearance in Blackhawk #133 from Feb. 1959, the fledgling fighter takes a chance & reaches out to join the Black Knights - and gets shot down in this little (& silly) slice of early Silver Age DC fab!

Theme created using a sample of 'Shotgun' by Duran Duran.

The 'local mayor' describes the antics of the man in purple, The Scavenger!

It's a regular Jungle Book, as every beast imaginable stampedes toward the Blackhawks

Zinda introduces herself

Not Zinda's finest moment, but I would absolutely freak out in this situation
Zinda ends up saving the day, but still doesn't get to join the team

One of Zinda's few 80's appearances - from Who's Who Update '87
