Indexer Notes

Pencils:
Les Zakarin stated that he never pencilled a comic book story. He used ghost pencillers instead and signed their art. (GCD Main 2004-10-27)
Verified in Alter Ego #27 (August, 2003) in interview by Jim Amash with Zakarin, which reproduces the splash panel, and Zakarin verifies signing penciler Romita's name to the page along with his credit for inking. So credits have been revised to reflect verified credits by Craig Delich 2011-1-1.
