Indexer Notes

Photos used as background art were taken by Al Hewetson. This story also caused a falling out between friends Hewetson and Shores when Shores became angered over what he regarded as a vindictive ink job by Adkins, who was apparently angry over Skywald’s low pay rates. Shores demanded a house name {Jim Elder} be used instead of his and announced that he’d never work for Skywald again. Hewetson spent two years rebuilding bridges with Shores until in early/mid-1973, Shores agreed to do another Skywald tale. Unfortunately, Shores died before actually beginning the artwork.
