Indexer Notes

This cover was originally advertised as the cover for #6.  Since it featured 'The Protectors', who guest-starred in the Rook's strip, one could assume that their origin story was to have debuted in #6, but was delayed for some reason until #11, while their guest-starring appearance here was used to prime the pump for their own series.
