Indexer Notes

Credits for pencils and inks confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics. [July 2007]. Letterer credit and sources for cover from Brian Lamken via the Error Tracker [April 2009]. Three of the vignettes on the cover are based heavily on the original BRAVE & BOLD covers (almost certainly lightboxed) and the others are probably based on the stories' splash pages. Top left is from cover to B&B #46, top right is from B&B #49, and bottom right is from B&B #48.
