Indexer Notes

Error report 9369: "I think the cover was drawn by Win Mortimer, not Al Plastino. Look at the
automoble. The line work is more detailed than Plastino normally did. Lois Lane's profile does look like either artist's work, but the hair is more in line with Mortimer's detailing." World's Finest guy.
