Indexer Notes

Includes letters from Dane Kalis, Max Erwine, Tim Savage, Lenny Herman and Matt Graham. E. Nelson Bridwell notes that this would be Kirby's last issue, explaining: "Jack feel's he's extended himself a bit too far...he's fallen a bit behind in his schedule, so he's turning this mag over to Joe Orlando with the next issue. He need's more time for his other mags - including a new one he has in the works!"
