Indexer Notes

Cover art credits in dispute. Sinnott's personal records have pencils credited to Marie Severin. Nick Caputo, based in part on viewing the original art in John Buscema, Michaelangelo of Comics, credits Buscema with at least the main figure, with Severin adding many background figures and elements. However Mike Burkey showed the actual original art to Neal Adams who affirmed he pencilled the cover, a fact he also records on his personal checklist on his website nealadams.com.
