Indexer Notes

We previously credited this story to Lyman Anderson. Via the GCD Error Tracker, Daniel Morales argued that the artwork is by Tom Cooper (who is credited with the following installments) based in large part on the shape of the face of the lead character. Bob Hughes agrees that the lettering on this story is certainly not by the same hand as the lettering of the story in #v1#1 (presumably Anderson). Nicky Wheeler Nicholson suggests this installment may have been begun by Anderson and completed by Cooper.
