Indexer Notes

The story has nothing to do with "Robots from Inferno" as touted on the cover (correction: this is an incorrect statement, as these so-called robots, actually human slaves, are mentioned and shown in 3 panels on page 4 before they are all killed.....note added by Craig Delich). Inker revision from Ray Osrin ? to Baker by Craig Delich 2013-4-22 per Bill Black.
