Indexer Notes

Per Nick Caputo, November 2014, Jack Kirby likely did some alterations on figures on the splash page and the last panel on page 5.

JVJ index card attached to online scanned version credits "Stein" with inks. Presumably this is Marvin Stein, who did work for the Simon & Kirby studio. Previous indexer tentatively credited Draut and Kirby.
