Indexer Notes

The story has separate chapter titles: Part I - Across Time, Darkly! and Part II - Am I My Brother's Keeper? Story continues in the next issue. The President slightly resembles Jimmy Carter, but is not named.

Removed erroneous credit for inks for Kurt Schaffenberger for the first page; the indexer was probably confusing it with the Table of Contents page, which is inked by him (bug # 1146, 2009-03-17 by Allen Ross).
