Indexer Notes

Credits for pencils and inks recorded from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics. Schwartz' records credit both Thomas and Gerry Conway with the script, the printed credits credit Thomas with script and Conway with a plotting assist, but Thomas says "The credits on DC COMICS PRESENTS #34 are definitely wrong. Gerry had no part in that issue, only in plotting part 1 in #33 from my concept."
