Other notes

Errors

  • When Wild Weasel calls in, he identifies himself as "Wild Weasel Six-Two-Niner," suggesting that he's part of a whole group, not an individual.
  • Throughout the second half of the story, Slip-Stream is identified as Dogfight.[1]
  • On the Comic Pack reprint, the cover misspells the title of this story as "Counting Coop."

Items of note

  • First appearance: Rampart, Aero-Viper, Hurricane, Adder
  • This was one of several selected issues for the Generation 3 Comic Pack line in 2008. The pack included Ace and Wild Weasel action figures as well as a reprint of this issue featuring a new cover by Greg Horn.
  • The Hurricanes seem to be piloted by Aero-Vipers, so Vapor doesn't appear in this issue.
  • Hawk's watch is engraved. It reads "To Clayton, ♥ Always, Roxy." The only "Roxy" we've met in the series thus far is the teenage girl who found her way into the Pit,[2] so it's probably not her. It would be revealed in the Devil's Due comics that Hawk once had a fiancee,[3] but her name was Carolee
  • A can of Yo Jo Cola appears.

Dossiers

  • The dossier in this issue features Dusty.

Real-world references

  • The title of the story is a reference to a Native American form of achieving victory from an enemy wherein a warrior rushes through much of the field of battle and simply touches the enemy with a coup stick and then escapes with his life intact. See the counting coup entry in Wikipedia.
  • Artist John Statema signed his name on page 18 - it can be seen on the protractor.

Footnotes and References

  1. The "No-Prize" solution would be that Ghostrider, annoyed at Slipstream's inability to remember his name, purposely began calling him the wrong thing. It first happens after Slipstream calls him "Stealthy."
