Indexer Notes

FM Snyder suggested the Wrestler was drawn by Frank Brunner, via the GCD Error Tracker (Error 3610 4 April 2010). Nick Caputo believes the figure of the Wrestler is indeed drawn by Colan and it is the rendering of the Wrestler's face by inker Steve Leialoha that is causing the confusion.
