Issue Notes

Cover pencils and inks credits from Craig Delich and Jerry Bails (October 2005); the original indexer credited the pencils to Irwin Hasen and the inks to Bernard Sachs. Gene Reed (2/23/2011)- The original credits were correct. Neither Wonder Woman nor the background figures look like Novick's signed work from the same period. The positioning of the legs are Hasen trademarks. Sachs inking corrected anatomy made the faces look less cartoony.
