Indexer Notes

Characters, synopsis: Added by Per Sandell (2005-12-05).

Timely-Atlas expert Michael Vassallo has examined hundreds of known Klein art and inking samples, as has Nick Caputo, and both agree that Klein is the primary inker, with alterations likely by Sol Brodsky.

In the letters page of issue #281 it states according to Roz and Jack Kirby, via Steve Leialoha, that it was Artie Simek who inked the first issue of FF and that Sol Brodsky started inking with issue #2 (Brodsky actually started inking with # 3). Previous indexer credited Chris Rule as possible inker.
