Indexer Notes

Nick Caputo originally credited Joe Sinnott on pencils, but Sinnott's job book has no listing for any stories in this issue. Since all the cover images are taken from interior story panels, his pencil credit has been removed. The cover art appears to be the work of several different artists based on the art inside this issue.
