Indexer Notes

Credits for pencils and inks confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics. Letterer credit and sources for cover from Brian Lamken via the Error Tracker. Three of the vignettes on the cover are based heavily on the original BRAVE & BOLD covers (almost certainly lightboxed) and the others are probably based on the stories' splash pages. Top left is from cover to B&B #46, top right is from B&B #49, and bottom right is from B&B #48.
