Fightin' Five were basically Charlton's version of the Blackhawks, although with better character developement, and way sexier (in the form of sultry female member Lady Dawn).
This issue, #40, is particularly rife with skin, of both genders, to ogle at.
Lady Dawn is spectacularly rendered by the exquisite linework of Bill Montes and Ernie Bach. And of course, Joe Gill goes all out in his story. FF apparently being more than just another script assignment, Gill seemed to really relish writing these adventures.
This issue also debuts Pat Boyette's Peacemaker, a character that proved to be so popular so quickly that after just one more issue, FF would be cancelled and relegated to back-up status on Peacemaker's own title.
Cover by Montes and Mastroserio, interiors by Montes and Bach, and Boyette.
