Indexer Notes

Pencils confirmed by Jack Burnley. Keith Chandler points out that Superman: The Action Comics Archives (DC, 1997 series) #4 (2005) gives cover inking credit to Stan Kaye, and he agrees. "Compare this cover with issue 66, which you give anyway as Kaye (but Archives #4 gives as 'Unknown')." Bob Hughes points out that the background detailing and Superman 'S' design point to Roussos on this cover and to Kaye on issue 66.
