Indexer Notes

Art credits from House of Secrets: The Bronze Age Omnibus (DC, 2018 series) #1. Previously Nick Caputo suggested Irv Novick, Jack Sparling, and/or various unknown artists as pencilers and Mike Esposito as possible inker. The original indexer credited the inks to George Tuska, which Caputo sees no trace of.
