Military Comics #20, The Golden Age Lady Blackhawk, is up for auction

On the cover of the issue, the new Blackhawk team member is referred to as "The Blonde Bomber" and is said to be "Sugar" in the story itself. While Sugar is only shown in this single July 1943 cover-dated issue, this remarkable story from Reed Crandal, possibly from a script by William Woolfolk, is one of the stand-outs of the Golden Age series. A Military Comics #20 (Quality, 1943) Condition: VG+ is up for auction

Sugar was initially reluctant to see Blackhawk before claiming that her brother was shot down over Germany and that she had a score to settle. By going undercover in Germany, she quickly proved her worth, claiming that the story would be never returned in the Golden Age.

The Golden Age Lady Blackhawk was the first female member of the Blackhawk team, although her appearance in Military Comics #20 was evidently demonstrated by Reed Crandall. A Military Comics #20 (Quality, 1943) Condition: VG+ is up for auction in the 2022 June 19-20 Sunday & Monday Comic Books Select Auction #122225 at Heritage Auctions.
