Indexer Notes

Credits on page one also note: "Aided by Herb Trimpe and practically the whole bullpen." Trimpe redrew many of the Hulk faces throughout the issue, as the caricatures of Nixon and Agnew and page 12 featuring DD and the Black Widow. Other artists who likely assisted included John Verpoorten, John Romita and Mike Esposito. Art credits note from Error Report #1881, by Nick Caputo. Englehart's credit is from http://www.steveenglehart.com/Comics/First%20Marvel%20Scripts%20I.html. The letters page has an interesting answer to a letter concerning coloring discrepancies and states that the colorist is not usually included in the comic credits because it is the last stage in the creation process before engraving and the Marvel editor's schedule is so hectic that it is simply easier not to try and include it. It also states that Marie Severin colors "most of our covers" and that Mimi Gold is the regular colorist on the interior of the Hulk.
