Indexer Notes

Shores pencils and Rule inks per Michael J. Vassallo. Jim Vadeboncoeur Jr notes: I don't think Shores is here. The layouts are all wrong and much too simplified to be his. I believe this is Rule taking over the art chores for this issue.

Indexer Notes

Shores pencils and Rule inks per Michael J. Vassallo.

Jim Vadeboncoeur Jr notes: I don't think Shores is here. Rule is copying Shores figures so it looks a bit like him, but he's staging them in layouts that just aren't right.

Indexer Notes

Shores pencils and Rule inks per Michael J. Vassallo. Jim Vadeboncoeur Jr notes: I'm probably going to ruffle Doc V's feathers with this last issue's credits, but I just can't see Shores doing such minimal layouts and simplified storytelling - despite all the "tells" that show up pointing towards his style. I think Rule is a damn good mimic when he wants to be.
