The Orion figure is based on a concept drawing that is reprinted with original coloring on page 386 of the volume. Don Heck is credited for inking, but some people argue that the style points to Frank Giacoia.

As told to Mike May by the artist, Murphy Anderson finished the left side of the Jimmy Olsen figure, primarily the leg. Information submitted through the GCD Errors list. The Newsboy Legion figures were pencilled by Kirby, the only portion of the cover retained from an earlier version of the cover, per Neal Adams in Jack Kirby Collector #17 (November 1997).

Indexer Notes

According to Mark Evanier, the caricature of Don Rickles is not by Jack Kirby. It was among photos provided by Rickles' publicist and picked by Jack for this cover, but it was unsigned so the artist is unknown. Jimmy Olsen and Superman heads inked by Murphy Anderson.

Indexer Notes

Don Heck is credited for inking of the drawings of Lightray, Orion, Mantis and Mister Miracle, but some people argue that inking style points to Frank Giacoia. The drawing of Darkseid and Metron were inked by Jack Kirby. Originally from Jack Kirby Collector #26 (November 1999).
