Indexer Notes

Credits for script confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics. The records credit Continuity Studios with the pencils and inks.

When asked about this, Bob Rozakis said: "[Martinez and Mazzaroli] were South American artists that Neal Adams convinced Julie Schwartz to give a try. You might notice that some of the character heads look like Neal did them rather than Martinez and Mazzaroli."
