Indexer Notes

Framing sequence. Amazing World of DC Comics #6 (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.
