Indexer Notes

Credits for pencils and inks from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics, credit Joe Kubert, as does Nick Caputo, although he believes another artist, possibly Grandenetti, altered the soldier's face. Other art spotters credit Jerry Grandenetti as sole artist. Schwartz kept editorial records for Robert Kanigher, who edited this issue.
