Indexer Notes

Job number and page count confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics.

Story continues from Superman (DC, 1939 series) #387 (September 1983). The splash page and first three panels of page 2 are added in order to split the story into two parts. Presumably, these additions were inked by Pablo Marcos, who is credited with "added inks." Page 15 is condensed from two of the original story pages, omitting two panels.
