Indexer Notes

Credits in Green Lantern #100 list this as Gil Kane pencils only, as do the Schwartz pay records. The credits in 80-Page Green Lantern Annual and Green Lantern Archives #1 list this as Kane, Sekowsky, Andru, Infantino and Giella. Art Spotter Gene Reed provided the page numbers for the pencils. Some pages may be combinations of more than one penciller. It is believed that while Kane was paid for the job the others were involved in the artwork. Possibly helping with deadline issues. Schwartz pay records provided by DC Comics.
