Indexer Notes

Art id by Pat Lang, Craig Delich and Bob Hughes. First mention of Superman being able to fly? Modified synopsis added by Craig Delich 9-22-08. Keith Chandler points out that Superman: The Action Comics Archives (DC, 1997 series) #4 (2005) credits Sikela. "I don't agree, but I don't see any Roussos in this either. Compare his thick inks on Batman around this date, and his layout style on, say, Airwave. The layouts here are almost too good to be Roussos. Page 9, panel 2 is superb, and unlike anything I've ever seen by him in either Golden or Silver Ages."
