Indexer Notes

Only vaguely resembles Celardo's art. HS & HW are more convinced than I am that he is here. I think straight Cassone is more likely. JV

Indexer Notes

Interesting to note that GCD had "Liebeck" as the artist here. "Liebeck" being Henry's misreading of a Gabriele signature and existing nowhere else in comic book literature, this clearly indicates that the previous credits were taken from the HS index without attribution.
