SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 22, January 1961, was published on November 15, 1960 (7 years before my sister was born). It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 10¢. Mort Weisinger was the editor, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye. It featured the issue’s second of three stories. All three stories were drawn by Kurt Schaffenberger, and have been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY vol. IV.
– THE DAY SUPERMAN PROPOSED (8 pgs.), was written by Otto Binder, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics, while the Grand Comic Book Database and The Comic Book Database credit Jerry Siegel as the writer. Since there is some disagreement about the writer credit, I will not be adding this story to Siegel’s silver age total. This story was also reprinted in 80 PAGE GIANT 14, September 1965, published on July 15, 1965, for the cover price of 25¢.
– LOIS LANE’S X-RAY VISION (8 pgs.), writer was unknown according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics, while the Grand Comic Book Database and The Comic Book Database credit Robert Bernstein as the writer of this story. This story was also reprinted in SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 85, an 80 Pg. Giant, cover dated September/October 1967, published on June 29, 1967.
– SWEETHEART OF ROBIN HOOD (9 pgs.), writer unknown, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics and The Comic Book Database, while the Grand Comic Book Database lists Robert Bernstein? as possibly the writer.
