ACTION COMICS 265, June 1960, was published on April 28, 2012. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of a dime. The editor was Mort Weisinger, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye, which featured Supergirl in her 4th cover appearance. They were also the art team for the 13 page Superman story in this issue, THE SUPERMAN FROM OUTER SPACE, written by Otto Binder and reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS:SUPERMAN vol. II.
Supergirl starred in the 13 page story, THE DAY SUPERGIRL REVEALED HERSELF, written by Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel and drawn by Jim Mooney, and reprinted in SUPERGIRL ARCHIVES vol. I and SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERGIRL vol. I. This was the 13th silver age story for one of the Superman titles, and the 26th overall so far in the silver age.
Since we are only featuring one issue this episode, we will also look at the METROPOLIS MAILBAG, as well as the ads and other features inside the cover!
