– THE DEVIL AND LOIS LANE (10 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. The artist was Kurt Schaffenberger. This story was reprinted in SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 86, September/October 1968, published on July 11, 1968. It was an 80-Pg. Giant with the cover price of a quarter.


– THE SUPER-SUITOR OF SOOMAR (8 pgs.), writer unknown, drawn by Kurt Schaffenberger.


– SUPERMAN’S ROMANCE WITH LANA LANE (8 pgs.), writer unknown, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics, while the Grand Comic Book Database credits Jerry Siegel as the writer. Since there is some disagreement about the writer credit, we won’t count this story toward Jerry’s silver age production.


Also highlighted in this episode are the ads and other features of this issue, including the LETTERS TO LOIS column.


Elsewhere in DC Comics, 29 titles carried the May or May/June 1963 cover date, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics.
