SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 32, April 1962, was published on February 13, 1962. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 12¢. The editor was Mort Weisinger, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan, inked by John Forte and lettered by Ira Schnapp. It featured the issue’s third and final story.


– THE SILVER COIN OF FATE (10 pgs.), writer unknown according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics, while the Grand Comic Book Database and Comic Book Database.com credits Robert Bernstein. The story was drawn by Kurt Schaffenberger, and was reprinted in SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 86. September/October 1968, published on July 11, 1969. It was an 80 Pg. Giant for 25¢.

– LOIS LANE’S REVENGE ON SUPERMAN (8 pgs.), writer unknown according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics, while the Grand Comic Book Database and Comic Book Database.com list Jerry Siegel as the possible writer. Since there is some disagreement about the writer credit, we won’t count this story toward his silver age production. This story was also reprinted in SUPERMAN 212, December 1968, published on October 15, 1968. It was an 80 Pg. Giant for the cover price of 25¢.
