Indexer Notes

In an interview in The Comics Journal #56 (1980), Michael Fleisher stated that he wrote "two [Spectre scripts] that were never drawn," not three. Also, this story has a title that does not match the usual formula of the other stories in the series. But the text article in #3 specifically says there were three unpublished scripts already written when the series was cancelled and the last story leaves several plot threads dangling, apparently to be followed up on, which confirms Fleisher wrote all three scripts in the 70s.
