Indexer Notes

Story continued from issue #658 and continues in the next issue. In promotional materials, this is called the start of the second half of "Camelot Falls". The book that Lois is reading to Chris on page 21 is an homage to the golden age Flash's three friends, who were frequently called "The Three Dimwits", and looked like that cover illo. And the authors listed on that book are an homage to that Flash's creative team, E. E. Hibbard and Gardner Fox.
