Indexer Notes

Credits verified by Joyce Murchison to Jerry Bails. Jill Lepore does NOT reflect the Marston credit originally listed along with Murchison credit. According to her book below, Jill talked with Joye 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.

Rex is not the same dog as in the Rex, The Wonder Dog series.
