Indexer Notes

Austin page credits provided by Steven Tice. Steve Mitchell reported on the Silver Age Sage #262 website that he and a few others provided some background and figure inking for Dick Giordano. Todd Klein reports doing some art extensions because some of the art was to the wrong proportions on some pages (http://kleinletters.com/1978OtherStuff.html).

Story broken up into pseudo-chapters with the captions "Training," "Preliminary," "Main Event," and "The Verdict."
