Indexer Notes

The original cover was drawn by Ross Andru and Sal Buscema, but Marie Severin was called on to greatly revise the cover, retaining most of the background elements, as discovered by Nick Caputo on Comic Art Fans page:

Also, in the back of the comic there's a page recounting the basic info of Kull. The text reads in part "...the cover...is the combined effort of Ross Andru, Sal Buscema and Marie Severin."

Indexer Notes

Story page count is 20 (numbered) in book, but since pages 12 and 13 are half-pages (shared with adverts), the total comes to 19 pages in this index. In reprints the two halfs are normally joined back into one.
