Indexer Notes

Credit for script confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics. Frank Giacoia indicated by Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics. Highly likely that Frank Giacoia did not pencil and ink this story; probable Carmine Infantino layouts, or possibly swipes. Information from a discussion on the GCD list between Bob Bailey, Mike Feldman and Bob Hughes.
