– THE LOIS LANE OF THE FUTURE (9 pgs.), writer unknown, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics, while the Grand Comic Book Database credits Jerry Siegel as the author. Because there is some disagreement on the writer credit, we won’t count this toward Jerry Siegel’s silver age production. John Forte was the artist.
