Indexer Notes

This same feature name had previously been used for editorials written specifically for the particular comics in which they appeared (such as issue #1 of this series). This is the first in a series of columns intended to appear "in most issues of Eclipse comics". The topics are convention appearances, Aztec Ace and Marshall Rogers.
