  • "'Artist credits are given in italics. Writing credits are not given except for outside contributors, because no records were kept as to who wrote what. Although Arnold Roth generally wrote the material he illustrated, he also wrote material that he didn't illustrate and occasionally illustrated material written by others. With some exceptions, Al Jaffee nearly always wrote the material he drew, but probably did not write material for other artists. Jack Davis and Will Elder did not write. All material not written by Roth, Jaffee or authors specifically credited in these volumes is presumed to have been written by Harvey Kurtzman. Arnold Roth drew all the masthead designs on the contents pages, which are not listed individually. A handful of drawings are not signed. We have done our best to determine who drew these in consultation with Arnold Roth, Al Jaffee, and Russ Heath' -- Gary Groth" (at head of table of contents)
