ACTION COMICS 308, January 1964, was published on November 27, 1963 (one day before my Mother’s 25th birthday). It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 12¢. The editor was Mort Weisinger and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by George Klein.

– The story featuring the Man Of Steel was titled, SUPERMAN MEETS THE GOLIATH – HERCULES (14 pgs.), writer unknown, drawn by Al Plastino. This story was reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN vol. IV.

– Supergirl starred in the 12 pg. story titled, THE SUPER-TOT FROM NOWHERE, written by Leo Dorfman and drawn by Jim Mooney. This story has been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERGIRL vol. II.

Also highlighted in this episode are the issue’s ads and other features, including the METROPOLIS MAILBAG letter column.

This episode begins with MY PULL LIST segment, where I review the comic books published in April, which I received from the Discount Comic Book Service. I also list the May and June 2015 titles I received in later shipments, which will be reviewed during future episodes.

Elsewhere in DC Comics, 31 titles carried the January or January/February 1964 cover date, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of Comics.

The next episodes will feature: THE SUPERMAN FAMILY COMIC BOOKS COVER DATED MARCH 1961: PART I: SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 51 & PART II: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS 116!

Then we will return to the Superman titles with: THE SUPERMAN TITLES COVER DATED FEBRUARY 1964: PART I: SUPERMAN 167 & PART II: ACTION COMICS 309!
