Indexer Notes

Adams pencils per original indexer, Nick Caputo and pencilink blog. Matthew Head previously credited Nick Cardy on pencils and Dick Giordano on inks. Per Sandell felt the cover had a Neal Adams feel in places, but believed it was likely Nick Cardy with Dick Giordano. The cover is neither listed in The Art of Nick Cardy or nealadams.com.

Nick Caputo notes the Cardy influence is likely due to an unpublished version of the cover that Adams based his cover on, as seen here: http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=311506&GSub=48491.
