Indexer Notes

From Shaun Clancy's Facebook page, "Comics History Exchange", confirms cover inking work by Ray Osrin (September 24, 2014). Osrin was one of Matt Baker's inkers. Osrin also maintained copies of the covers he worked on the walls of his studio. Included in a picture of the studio (owned by Clancy and posted to this Facebook page) was this cover. Originally inks were credited to Matt Baker due to his signature on the cover.
