Adventure Comics # 255, December, 1958

The dinosaur ad on the inside front cover is yet another sign of the popularity of giant monsters in movies. The popularity of Daisy guns as we head up to Christmas of '58 is seen in not one but two separate ads for them at the back of the book.

Once one of the most popular comic books of all, BLACKHAWK's moment had probably passed by the time DC picked up the title from the now defunct Quality Comics. It limped along for another few years before the company tried a modernization. In the end, DC's version survived until the end of the sixties and has been revived about once every decade since in one form or another. 

Letter writers suggest that Aquaman needs a young sidekick. Hmmm...
