Indexer Notes

Foreword by Paul Levitz, dated September 2019. Includes a blown up image from the cover of Adventure Comics #449. Levitz explains how he came to be assigned to write Aquaman stories by editor Joe Orlando, and how publisher Carmine Infantino felt that the inexperienced Levitz was weak on dialogue and needed a more experienced writer to re-write the dialogue on his first several stories.

Indexer Notes

In the forward for this collection, Paul Levitz explains that after he originally wrote the story and Jim Aparo penciled, inked, and lettered it, publisher Carmine Infantino felt that the inexperienced Levitz needed a more experienced writer to re-write the dialogue, and David Michelinie was brought in for that purpose. Ben Oda was brought in to re-letter the story after the changes were made.
