Cold As Ice

Count on Blackhawk to find skimpily dressed femme fatales in the least likely of places, such as the frozen arctic!

The following story originally appeared in Blackhawk #37 (Quality Comics, February 1951). The story is uncredited, but the Grand Comics Database guesses the art was drawn by Bill Quackenbush.

As is the case with just about every Golden Age Blackhawk story featuring Chop Chop, the comic contains more than its share of offensive racist stereotypes. While it isn’t my intention to condone such ignorance, I don’t wish to censor a very real – if unpleasant – part of our cultural heritage.

I wish we were beyond such nonsense in the 21st century, but recent media coverage of Jeremy Lin unfortunately illustrates we haven’t advanced as a society as much as we’d like to believe.

With that in mind, here’s “Aurora, Queen Of The Arctic.”
