Indexer Notes

Some of the art for Deadpool #4 and 5 was rendered directly from pencils to colors by Digital Chameleon; Article explains how this process is done and illustrates it with a page from the story (although this is a common practice in current comics, in 1997, it was a revolutionary new process).
