Indexer Notes

Per Keith Giffen's interview in Alter Ego # 14: "I was just the layout artist. I can make a claim to some design work, the pacing of the story, and the layout of the panels. But I was just the storyboard guy. And then Woody would come along with his people and he would work his magic over the top of it." A.L.Sirois background inks per Wallace Wood Checklist. Story includes a half page cross-section of the JSA headquarters with 5 basement levels. Story continued in part from previous issue; story continues next issue.
