Indexer Notes

Story had been previously credited to Steve Stern in Psycho #6, but it was credited to Jeff Jones in this reprint. The Steve Stern name is believed to be a house name. It appears nowhere else, nor for any other company and it was used at Skywald only twice, with artists closely related through their fanzine work—Michael Kaluta & Jeff Jones.
