Indexer Notes

Per Marvel Comics Index # 9B: "Daredevil featurette not connected with Mauler story, added as a filler when Marvel increased the page count of original material in all its comics. Credits, particularly letterer, may differ from those listed in main story."

Lettering credit confirmed by Michael Higgins.
