Indexer Notes

Per Keith Giffen's interview in Alter Ego # 14: "I was just the layout artist. I can make a claim to some design work, the pacing of the story, and the layout of the panels. But I was just the storyboard guy. And then Woody would come along with his people and he would work his magic over the top of it. Info is also confirmed in the letters page. Sirois background inks per Wallace Wood Checklist.

Superman retires from the JSA once more and insists that Power Girl is elected as his replacement. It is revealed on the splash page of the next issue, continuing from this issue, that both Power Girl and Star-Spangled Kid have been made "full-fledged members" of the Justice Society.

Story continues from the previous issue; story continues in part in the next issue.
