Indexer Notes

DC credited the script to Bill Finger in The Green Arrow by Jack Kirby and The Jack Kirby Omnibus #1 reprints, but they credit Dave Wood in the Showcase Presents Green Arrow #1 reprint. The GCD writing-experts' consensus is that Wood is the most-likely candidate, but Herron is possible, and Finger is also possible, but the least-likely of the three.
