Indexer Notes

Adapted from Leiber's "The Cloud of Hate."
From Tim Barnes: I asked Walt Simonson in May 1984 who did what. He said he and Chaykin split the pencils, one of them did 6 pages, the other did 8 pages (I don't remember if he said who did the 6 and who did the 8) - exception being the top of the splash page, which was pencilled by Amendola, who inked the story.
