– SUPERMAN’S GREATEST SACRIFICE (9 pgs.), dcindexes.com does not list a writer, but comics.org identifies him as Robert Bernstein, but both websites identify the artist as classic Lois Lane artist Kurt Schaffenberger. This story was also reprinted in 80 PG. GIANT 3, September 1964, published around July 30, 1964.

– THE GIRL OF 100 COSTUMES (8 pgs.), was drawn by Al Plastino.

– THE FATTEST GIRL IN METROPOLIS (8 pgs.), written by Otto Binder and drawn by Kurt Schaffenberger. This story was also reprinted in GIANT SUPERMAN ANNUAL 1, covered in Episode 222.

Since this episode only covers one comic book issue, also highlighted will be the other ads and features in this issue, including what might be the first letter page for Lois Lane, LETTERS TO LOIS.

Elsewhere in DC Comics, 32 titles also carried the November or November/December 1958 cover date. They were covered in Episode 176, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics.
