Indexer Notes

Credits updated 10/06 by Bob Hughes. Previously inker listed as Marvin Stein. Per Stein's conversations with Greg Theakston, he did not ink any Challengers stories. Nick Caputo believes Kirby did not ink this story, citing the slick inking that is vastly different than Kirby's identified inks. After studying the work of a number of artists working for editor Jack Schiff in this period, Nick suspects it may be the work of Leonard Starr.
