Indexer Notes

In a column Marc wrote for Alter-Ego #25 (June, 2003), he recalls that he MAY have written this story, but isn't sure.....thus a ? after his name in the writer section. Art credits verified by Swayze in his column from Alter-Ego #5 (Summer, 2000), which reprinted the splash page to this story. Roy Thomas verifies the Swayze writer credit in Alter Ego #114 (December 2012).
