Indexer Notes

Pencil and inks credits, and page count confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics.

Sid Greene's usual depiction of Julius Schwartz as a character occurs twice here, on page two panel five and page seven panel five.

This story's narrative conceit is similar to that of Akira Kurosawa's 1950 film Rashomon, in which the same incident (in this case, the capture of the Loborilla) is recounted by four different characters (including the Loborilla) as well as four different perspectives. Ingeniously, writer Gardner Fox also makes all four accounts internally consistent.
