Indexer Notes

Page 8 is a 2/3-page and page 16 is a 1/2-page.

Steev and Jimm appear to be other-dimensional counterparts of Steve Skeates and Jim Aparo. Dikk would also appear to be an other-dimensional counterpart to editor Dick Giordano. Steev and Jimm make an oblique meta joke/reference to deadlines.
