Indexer Notes

Credits verified by Joyce Murchison to Jerry Bails. Jill Lepore does NOT reflect the Marston credit originally listed along with the Joyce Murchison credit. According to her book, Lepore talked with Murchison about her credits and she did not likewise give the Marston credit (like she did for the story in Sensation #55 for example), so it has been removed.
