Indexer Notes

Chris Boyko believes the top portion is drawn entirely by Marie Severin, but Nick Caputo attests that it is heavily revised from the Kirby/Ayers original. The girl and her dog are by Marie, with portions of the monster also redrawn. The bottom portion is taken from Ditko's interior splash, with some additions. Updated info per Nick Caputo, December 2017.
