Indexer Notes

The original story was in black and white (with shading). The art on all pages has been extended on the edges to widen them (not by the original artists); that's why many captions are not left-aligned.

Indexer Notes

The original issue says this story was inked by Karl Kesel, but this reprint says Terry Austin. I believe the original, as Kesel was inking all of them at that time. When this story was reprinted in Superman: Rampage (2006), it contains the Kesel credit. Austin might have inked the cover.
