SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 30, January 1962, was published on November 14, 1961 (my maternal grandfather’s 51st birthday). It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 12¢. Mort Weisinger was the editor, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan, inked by Stan Kaye and lettered by Ira Schnapp. It featured the issue’s second and final story. Kurt Schaffenberger drew both stories.
– WHEN SUPERMAN ABANDONED LOIS LANE (8 pgs.), writer unknown.
– SUPERMAN’S SECRET FAMILY (Part I: 8 pgs.), writer unknown, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics and Comic Book Database.com, while the Grand Comic Book Database credits Jerry Siegel as the writer. Since there is some disagreement with the writer credit, we won’t count this story towards Jerry Siegel’s silver age production.
– (Part II) THE ROBOT PARADISE (8 pgs.)
