Indexer Notes

Original ink credit listed Frank Giacoia. Cover signed Jim Steranko, listed in THE MARVEL COMICS INDEX #6 (George Olshevsky, December 1977), confirmed by Nick Caputo, Barry Pearl, Henry Kujawa & Nick Simon. Henry Kujawa suggested that the Laura Brown figure was inked by Wally Wood, agreed by Nick Simon (August 2007). Nick Caputo believes the cover is inked entirely by Steranko.
