Indexer Notes

Pencil/Ink credits on this cover are a matter of some debate. Agreement is that everything except the Superman/Batman and Robin characters are by Swan/Kaye. There is some doubt about the Superman/Batman and Robin characters as possibly being by Win Mortimer. Win Mortimer denies having any part of this cover in a conversation with Craig Delich, so if those are Win Mortimer figures they were most likely added by paste-ups from the production department and not drawn by Win Mortimer specifically for this cover. [Mike Nielsen - From a discussion on the GCD email list]
