SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 16, April 1960, was published on February 9, 1960. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 10¢. Mort Weisinger was the editor, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye, featuring this issue’s third and final story. All three nine page stories were drawn by classic Lois Lane artist Kurt Schaffenberger, and have been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY vol. III.

– LOIS LANE’S SIGNAL WATCH, writer unknown, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics and Comic Book Database, while the Grand Comic Book Database lists the author as possibly Jerry Siegel. Since there is some disagreement on the writer credit for this story, I won’t add it to Jerry Siegel’s total for his silver age career.

– THE MYSTERY OF SKULL ISLAND, again, writer unknown according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics and the Comic Book Database.com, while the Grand Comic Book Database credits Robert Bernstein as the author.

– THE KRYPTONITE GIRL, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics and Comic Book Database.com, the writer is unknown, while the Grand Comic Book Database lists Jerry Siegel as the writer. Since there is some disagreement about the author of this story, I’ll also not add this credit to Jerry Siegel’s silver age comic book career.

Also highlighted in this episode are the issue’s ads and other features, including the LETTERS TO LOIS column.
