ACTION COMICS 311, April 1964, was published around February 27, 1964 (26 years before my son was born. I mistakenly said 30 years during the ELSEWHERE IN DC COMICS segment). 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.


– SUPERMAN, KING OF THE EARTH (13 pgs.), writer unknown according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics, while the Grand Comic Book Database and the Comic Book Database credit Leo Dorfman as the author. This story was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by George Klein and lettered by Joe Letterese, and apparently has not been reprinted.


– Supergirl starred in the 13 page story titled, THE DAY SUPER-HORSE BECAME HUMAN, written by Leo Dorfman and drawn by Jim Mooney. This story was reprinted in ADVENTURE COMICS 390, March/April 1970, published around January 13, 1970, a 64 page Giant for the cover price of a quarter, as well as SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERGIRL vol. II.


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


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