First, I’d like to welcome a new podcast to the Silver Age neighborhood: GIANT SUPERMAN PODCAST, hosted by Jon M. Wilson and Bob Fisher, also available on iTunes!


WORLD’S FINEST COMICS 120, September 1961, was published around July 18, 1961. It contained 32 pages still for the cover price of only a dime. Jack Schiff was the editor, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Sheldon Moldoff.


– THE CHALLENGE OF THE FACELESS CREATURES (13 pgs.), written by Jerry Coleman and drawn by Jim Mooney. This story has also been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: WORLD’S FINEST vol. II.


– Tommy Tomorrow starred in the seven page story titled, THE WEAPONS THAT BOOMERANGED, written by Jack Miller and drawn by Jim Mooney.


– Green Arrow and Speedy were featured in the six page story, THE DEADLY TROPHY HUNT, written by Ed Herron and drawn by Lee Elias. This story was also reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: GREEN ARROW vol. I.


Also highlighted in this episode were the issue’s ads and other features.


If you are curious about the ads for Tootsie Roll Fudge which were published during this era of DC Comics, check out this 1950’s TV commercial.


Elsewhere in DC Comics, 28 titles carried the September or September/October 1961 cover date, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics.
