Indexer Notes

Adapted from Leiber's "The Cloud of Hate."

According to Tim Barnes, in the letters column of Alter Ego #106, Walt Simonson said he and Chaykin split the pencilling of pages with one penciling 6 pages and the other 8 pages, the top of the splash page was pencilled by Amendola, and Amendola inked the whole thing. Nick Caputo previously suggested inking assistance by Frank Springer, Vincente Alcazar, Walt Simonson and Steve Mitchell.
