Indexer Notes

The figure of Captain Marvel on this cover was traced and used on the splash to the first Captain Marvel story in Captain Marvel Adventures #4 (information provided by Craig Delich (November 2005).

While the cover is new, the insides feature reprints of stories found in Whiz Comics #8, 10 and 11, plus Special Edition Comics #1.

Paul C. Hamerlinck says, in Alter Ego #130 (January 2015), that Captain Marvel co-creator C.C. Beck told him that he had penciled this cover and that Pete Costanza had inked it.
