Indexer Notes

The letters page of issue #281 states according to Roz and Jack Kirby, via Steve Leialoha, that it was Artie Simek who inked the first issue of FF and that Sol Brodsky started inking with issue #2. This information was incorrect per Timely-Atlas historian Michael J. Vassallo, who has proven through extensive research that Klein is the primay inker of FF #'s 1 and 2. Other noted art ID'ers agree.
