Indexer Notes

Includes a letter from Robert Greenberger (Jericho, New York). Includes a short article after the letters, "The Story Behind the Story of Weird War Tales," which explains that Weird War Tales was originally not going to be a series of its own but just two issues of Super DC Giant edited by Joe Kubert. When Super DC Giant was cancelled, Weird War Tales was put on the schedule as a regular bi-monthly. This article also laments the lack of reader comment on the series, also noted in the letters pages of a few prior issues.
