Indexer Notes

Writer credit by Craig Delich, updated 8/04; although Nodell is given a by-line on this story, he didn't do any art. Note: the original splash page to this story just surfaced and the reverse was signed by Chet Kozlak. The splash appears to solely be by Hasen, so am not sure why Kozlak signed this piece. Alan Scott works for APEX Studios. Notes & synopsis added by Craig Delich 9-8-08.
