Blackhawk #235

Blackhawk #235 (On Sale: June 13, 1967) as usual has a cover by Dick Dillin and Charles Cuidera.

Inside we have "A Coffin for a Blackhawk" by Bob Haney, Dick Dillin and Charles Cuidera. The Blackhawks try to complete a trade with an international criminal known as the Leopard. However, the Leopard's agent Rufo, an invulnerable giant takes off with the missile locator system that the Blackhawks want. The device is hidden inside a coffin, but the giant successfully escapes with it.

With the help of Rufo's twin brother Romulus, the Blackhawks track the thief through enemy territory. They find that Rufo has been captured by local authorities, so the team goes undercover to break him out. When they successfully free the giant, they learn that the coffin was lost prior to his capture.

The Blackhawks then join a traveling circus in disguise to look for the coffin. The Leopard has found it first and makes the trade with the Blackhawks for a force field device.
