Indexer Notes

Artist revision from Sheldon Moldoff to Moreira pencils and Elgin ? inks by Craig Delich 2013-5-15. While the Who's Who doesn't indicate that Moreira did pencils on this feature, Busy Arnold in a 1972 interview states that he did some early pencils on the Kid Eternity material, and his inker was probably Elgin. Moldoff did the interior story for sure.
