Synopsis
Knowing that it takes the Blackhawks 6 hours to fly to Luonia, Queen Bee persuades the dictator of Valga to post an armored division at their border and wait for her word to attack. When her Golden Swarm arrives, instead of aiding Reglo they strafe his forces, then fly on to Luonia to pose as their defenders. The Queen Bee lands at Valga's capitol and kills Reglo, then seizes power. Papers worldwide carry the news of the Golden Swarm's embarrassment of the Blackhawks, inspiring women all over to join them and seize power. Blackhawk exposes their scheme.

Indexer Notes

When reprinted in #72 page 2 is missing. On this page the customer actually leaves the brief case behind. In the reprint it looks like Chop Chop gets in the taxi with the brief case in it. Panel two on page 2 of the reprint (page 3 of the original) the text has been changed. In the original the text was "Ohh! Man in big hully..." while the reprint has "Someone in big hully...".

All Gustavson credits verified and courtesy of Terry Gustafson, son of Paul Gustavson.
