Indexer Notes

Framing sequence; continues as [Closing] at end of issue. Amazing World of DC Comics #5 (1975), in promoting this issue, provided the following credits: “intros by Sergio Aragones and Steve Skeates....” This ordering of credits seems to suggest that Aragones originated the pages, and that Skeates added dialog to the art. The AWODCC credits appear to cover non-consecutive pages in this issue.
