Indexer Notes

This story was apparently written in full-script form, pencilled, lettered (by Aparo), and inked. But after that for whatever reason, the original story was scrapped, and a new story written to match the art. The new script was then re-lettered (by Ben Oda) on new paper overlays and pasted over the old lettering on the original art. This is confirmed by looking at the original art, and peeling off the new lettering, an example of which was posted on jimaparofanclub.blogspot.com by M. W. Gallaher. (Note added by Allen Ross.)
