Indexer Notes

has that Eisner laid out look and the curious blend that Lee has called "Powell/Henkel" art. I can see where he gets that as a name to use for this style. The females DO look like Powell but the overall art is more mediocre than either Powell or Henkel...but it worked well for me to use as we went along.
