Indexer Notes

Dave Cockrum reports 2006 that "I did loose pencils in blue. Editor Ann Nocenti referred to them as 'shakedowns'. But everything was there." Illyana's Fairy Tale is in X-Men Annual #8; Lockheed the Dragon (patterned after the X-Men's plane) pre-dates the 1st appearance of the real Lockheed. Nightcrawler travels to an alternate dimension inhabited by the characters in this fairy tale in Nightcrawler (Marvel, 1985 series) #3.
