Indexer Notes

Credits for pencils and inks confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics. Records show only Wein for script. Colors credit from Carl Gafford via the GCD Error Tracker.

The printed credits read "Story by: Len Wein, aided & abetted by: Felton Marcus." We formerly identified "Felton Marcus" as Paul Levitz, but in an interview with Rik Offenberger published at ComicsBulletin on August 20, 2003, Levitz denied that he was Felton Marcus, saying instead that it is a pseudonym of Mark Hanerfeld.
