Credits for script, pencils and inks confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics. Schwartz's records only credit Giordano on inks, but credit in the book itself is "Art: Irv Novick & Frank McLaughlin plus...Dick Giordano." The Giordano credit appears squished into the credit box, as if it was added later.
