Indexer Notes

Amazing World of DC Comics #1 (1974), in promoting this issue, says this content is “by Sergio Aragones and Steve Skeates.” This ordering of credits seems to suggest that Aragones originated the pages, and that Skeates added dialog to the art. The AWODCC credits appear to cover several non-consecutive pages in this issue.
