Indexer Notes

The inker for this cover is unknown. The Table of Contents for this collection lists Ditko as the only artist for the cover, however in the text page of the original issue, it states that "Steve has put aside his inking pen and brush." Carl Gafford had suggested Al Milgrom as the inker, but Milgrom states that he did not ink this cover. TCR credits Mike Royer as the cover inker, but Royer doubts that it was him.
