Indexer Notes

Per Neal Adams himself from a Web page: "Sergio wrote and penciled this story. (He usually gets a little help on the dialogue near the end.) I asked if I could draw the story but I am so in love with Sergio's straight forward storytelling and direct messaging I asked him if I could ink his pencils and only tighten them up a little bit so that both of our natures could be seen. I love this job for all the above reasons and had a wonderful time doing it. A classic."
