Indexer Notes

Lettering credit from reprint in Legion Archives. As Dave Cockrum explains in the foreword to that volume and elsewhere, the art credits were flipped on this story because he was a novice and the editor did not want to offend the veteran Murphy Anderson.

First Cockrum art on Legion of Super-Heroes feature.
