Since this is the final Superman issue with the February 1965 cover date, at the end of the episode will be the segment, ELSEWHERE IN DC COMICS, where we review the other DC titles which carried the February or February/March 1965 cover date.

Then we will feature: SUPERMAN FAMILY COMIC BOOKS COVER DATED MARCH 1965: PART I: SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 83, PART II: ACTION COMICS 322 & PART III: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS 148!
