Anybody know what the codes are that are all over the artwork? I know they're probably production and file keeping numbers but I'm just curious. They are a part of the artwork now.
A-M stands for April-May, 8 is the issue #, and 12 may be the page position of this page in the publisned comic book. It's story page 10, but I assume there are a couple of ad pages.
It is page 12 in the published magazine. In modern comics parlance, I believe that's called the "lineup (or 'line-up') page number" -- as opposed to the "story page number".
