Indexer Notes

Inking credit supplied by Franklin Colletta via the GCD Error list, July 2008 and February 2010.
Franklin Colletta guessed Vince Colletta as the penciller, also. There's scant material here to detect a penciling style, but the fact that the original appearance was UNsigned makes it UNlikely to have been penciled by Vince Colletta.
