Indexer Notes

Story in two parts of 7.67 pages and 4.67 pages.

Tattooed Man modeled after actor John Wayne, per Bob Bailey.

Bob Rozakis credited Joe Giella (and not Frank Giacoia) with this story’s inks in Green Lantern #100 (January 1978). Giacoia and Giella were both credited with inks in Green Lantern Annual #1 (1998). The Giacoia and Giella credits were repeated in Showcase Presents Green Lantern vol. 2 (2007).
