ACTION COMICS 309 (which I mistakenly referred to as issue 308), February 1964 was published around December 26, 1963. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 12¢. Mort Weisinger was the editor, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Sheldon Moldoff.
– The 14 page Superman story was titled, THE SUPERMAN SUPER-SPECTACULAR, written by Edmond Hamilton, pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by George Klein. This story was also reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN vol. IV, and was the final story in that volume.
– The 12 page Supergirl story was titled, THE UNTOLD TALE OF ARGO CITY, written by Leo Dorfman and drawn by Jim Mooney. This story was also reprinted in ADVENTURE COMICS 416, March 1972 and SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERGIRL vol. II.
