Blackhawk Serial Trailer

BLACKHAWK premiered from Quality Comics in 1941 and the strip floundered on for some years after World War II, eventually shifting to DC in the late fifties. Why they would choose to make this serial (starring Kirk "SUPERMAN" Alyn) as late as 1952 is a mystery. Interesting to note the surprising screen credit for artist Reed Crandall. Crandall neither created the strip nor was its main artist by that point but obviously his still-popular work made an impact!
