Indexer Notes

From Hames Ware: For consistency's sake this story is by the artist who had been previously listed as Milt Knopf. Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr. originally made this ID by cross-referencing signed work at another company and may have decided it was less than definitive, but for continuity, Milt Knopf might be an agreeable way of putting a name to this strange style.
