Indexer Notes

Continued in X-Men (Marvel, 1963 series) #94. This series is borken into four parts, Second Genesis (13 pages), Chapter II ...And When There Was One! (7 pages), Chapter III Assault Force (8 pages), and Chapter IV Krakoa... the Island That Walks Like a Man! (8 pages).

Sources for particularization of story/script credits are The Marvel Comics Index (Olshevsky 1981) and The Official Marvel Index to the X-Men (Olshevsky 1987).

Peter Iro is credited with background inks in many sources, but none of his work was in the finished product, per Dave Cockrum: "First--your listing of X-Men Special Edition #1 lists Peter Iro as one of the creative team on Giant-Size X-Men #1. It's about time somebody put the lie to this one: Pete Iro did indeed try his hand at inking my backgrounds on FIVE PAGES ONLY. [Emphasis his] Even if a background assistant completes a full job, he gets no credit whatsoever for having worked on the job. But aside from that, the five pages he inked were so crudely and amateurishly butchered that I was forced to white out all his work and re-ink those pages myself. In view of this fact, it's obvious why I resent Iro being listed as having worked on the book: I inked that book entirely, and no one else." (The Comic Reader #208)

Indexer Notes

The original art is signed by Sal Buscema (info submitted by mikebo via the GCD Error Tracker). Buscema fully rendered a Severin sketch for the cover of #69 and that may be the process here, although in this period others including John Romita and Ed Hannigan worked on cover designs.

After examining the original art Nick Caputo suspects that Romita inked the cover with a possible touch-up on the Demon's face by Cockrum.

Steve Whitaker previously credited Sal Buscema on pencils and Al Milgrom on inks with Storm penciled and inked by Dave Cockrum. Marvel's Official Index to the X-Men #2 credited Marie Severin on pencils and Sal Buscema on inks.
