Indexer Notes

Possible Stein inks per Mark Evanier and Nick Caputo. Although Stein had conversations with Greg Theakston denying he inked any Challengers stories it's possible Stein forgot he worked on them. It also looks like Kirby inked a few pages on his own. Possible Wood script and Kirby revisions per Mark Evanier and Nick Caputo.
