Issue Notes

This issue was sold with three premiums contained in an envelope that was stapled into the centerfold. The premiums were: a 10" by 13" poster of Batman and Robin on a rooftop (artwork taken and trimmed from a poster released as part of a set in the U.S.); a cardboard "Superman magic disc," 3.25" in diameter, with head shots of Superman, Batman and other images; and a wristwatch calendar, consisting of three stickers with the calendars for June through August 1969.

The calendars indicate this issue was released in May or June 1969.

Publication frequency taken from editorial on page 2.

Reprinted stories in this issue are laid out differently then the originals to accommodate more panels per page.
