SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 42, July 1963, was published on May 9, 1963. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 12¢. Mort Weisinger was the editor, and the cover was drawn by Kurt Schaffenberger. It featured the issue’s third and final story, all three of which were also drawn by him.


– THE GIRL WHO DESTROYED ATLANTIS (9 pgs.), writer unknown according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics, while the Grand Comic Book Database credits Leo Dorfman.


– THE MONKEY’S PAW (7 pgs.), writer unknown according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics, while the Grand Comic Book Database credits Jerry Siegel. Since there is some disagreement about the writer credit, we won’t count this towards his silver age production.


– THE ROMANCE OF SUPER BABY AND BABY LOIS (9 pgs.), writer unknown. This story was reprinted in SUPERMAN IN THE SIXTIES and LOIS LANE: A CELEBRATION OF 75 YEARS.


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