Issue Notes

No longer wrap-around covers, and ads are again in the book. No letters page this issue.

On-sale date from Comic Reader #170.

Because of the aborted plans to convert this title to a standard-size comic edited by Julius Schwartz (see the issue note in the previous issue record), the cover and the Superman/Batman story were actually edited by Schwartz.
