Indexer Notes

We originally credited Tuska and Heck with pencils, Heck and another unidentified artist with inks. Alberto Becattini identified the second inker as Mike Peppe. Nick Caputo questions the Don Heck pencils and Mike Peppe inks credits and believes the story was pencilled solely by Tuska and inked by Heck.
