Indexer Notes

Credits for script, pencils and inks confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics (May 2007).

Most of the story from issue #9 is retold here; some of it redrawn, some pages reprinted directly (15-26, 28 in this issue; from pages 6-17, 19 in the original).

The story was changed slightly; for instance in the original the final creature was turned into a "pile of slivers and splinters" by Wonder Woman (Flash says "destroyed"), while in the updated story it was "planed down to its bare essence", still clearly intact.
