Air Fighters: Blackhawk #242 (Oct. 1968)

On this episode, I resurrect the Air Fighters feature to recap & comment on one of my favorite Blackhawk stories!  Issue #242 was as close as you can come to a reboot for the legendary team of aviator adventurers without actually rebooting.  Editor Dick Giordano, writers Bob Haney & Marv Wolfman and artist Pat Boyette blow-up the unsuccessful  'Junk Heap Heroes' era of the Blackhawks, dispose of the atrocious 'hero names' & appalling outfits and bring the Black Knights back to basics!
