Blackhawk is a long-running comic book series published first by Quality Comics and later by National Periodical Publications (DC). The series was created by Will Eisner, Chuck Cuidera (as Charles Nicholas), and Bob Powell, but the artist most associated with the feature is Reed Crandall. Future Justice League of America artist Dick Dillin succeeded him in the 1950s, continuing on through DC's acquisition of the series.

The Blackhawks are a small team of World War II-era ace pilots of varied nationalities:

*Blackhawk, originally identified as Polish, but later issues referred to him as American. Name unknown.
*Andre is French.
*Olaf is from Norway.
*Chuck is a Texas-born American.
*Hendrickson is Dutch.
*Stanislaus is Polish.
*Chop-Chop is Chinese.
