Indexer Notes

Art credits from JVJ index card attached to online scanned version. Card also suggests Dan Zolnerowich and "Greene" (unclear which of the numerous artists with this last name), but does not make it clear if these are inkers or collaborators on the pencils (or both). A shop has the name "Dan's Hats" on it in one panel.
