Issue Notes

Color reconstruction by Rick Keene.

Collects Supergirl back-up stories from Action Comics #252-307. Includes the lead story from Action #285 "The World's Greatest Heroine! Part 1" where Supergirl is revealed to the world.

Note: this collection does not include the cover or lead story from Action Comics #276 "The War between Supergirl and the Supermen Emergency Squad!", a Superman story that prominently features Supergirl. Both this story and its cover were reprinted previously in Supergirl Archives volume 2. Curiously, images from both the story and the cover were reprinted among other illustrations for the Foreward section of this collection.

The stories from Action Comics #286-307 were not previously included in the Supergirl Archives, as volume 2 of that series ended with Action Comics #285.

Streaky discovers the piece of discarded Kryptonite, and receives super-powers from it. Streaky feeds some stray cats by tipping over a milk truck and chases off a bullying dog.
