Indexer Notes

Framing sequence on first and next-to-last non-cover pages of issue. Amazing World of DC Comics #5 (1975), in promoting this issue, provided the following credits: “intros by Sergio Aragonés and Steve Skeates....” This ordering of credits seems to suggest that Aragonés originated the pages, and that Skeates added dialog to the art. The AWODCC credits appear to cover non-consecutive pages in this issue.
