Modern Comics was a continuation of Military Comics, which was renamed after issue number 43 in October 1945 following the end of World War II. Each issue of Modern Comics featured a story about the Blackhawk Squadron and several other tales of action and adventure. The Squadron was led by the Polish pilot Blackhawk, who battled the Nazi army that killed his brother and sister. The rest of the squadron was a motley crew of international military men with specialized skills to help defeat the Axis powers.
