Indexer Notes

Kirby's co-plot credit is widely acknowledged by Lee and Kirby in numerous interviews. Here the credit reads "Extravagantly executed with ebullient erudition by: Stan Lee and Jack Kirby."

Stan Goldberg credit based on a note on one of the original artboards (seen here: http://www.tcj.com/im-gonna-open-sealed-door-to-negative-zone/ ) as seen by Trevor Ashfield.
