Indexer Notes

A retelling of "The Unsuspecting" by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in Amazing Adult Fantasy (Marvel, 1961 series) #13 (June 1962). Kuramoto credit per Nick Caputo, April 2013. Previous indexer credited Ray Holloway. Nick notes that based upon an examination of the lettering styles Ray Holloway has been incorrectly identified as using the pseudonym "Sherigail". The name was derived from Morrie Kuramoto's wife and daughter, Gail and Sherry, as noted here:
