Superman Fan Podcast Episode #369 Part I: Superman Family Comic Book Cover Dated May 1964: World’s Finest Comics #141!

World’s Finest Comics 141, May 1964!

Download Episode 369 Part I!

WORLD’S FINEST COMICS 141, May 1964, published on March 12, 1964. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 12¢. This issue marks Mort Weisinger’s first issue as series editor. The cover was pencilled by Curt Swan, inked by George Klein and lettered by Ira Schnapp.

– The 17 page Superman/Batman story was titled, THE OLSEN-ROBIN TEAM VERSUS THE SUPERMAN-BATMAN TEAM. Part I was eight pages long. The writer was Edmund Hamilton, pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by George Klein. This story was also reprinted in WORLD’S FINEST COMICS 225, September/October 1974, published on June 18, 1974. (I mistakenly said 1975 during the recording.) It contained 100 pages for the cover price of 60¢. It was also reprinted in EVEN MORE SECRET ORIGINS 1, SHOWCASE PRESENTS: ROBIN THE BOY WONDER, SHOWCASE PRESENTS: WORLD’S FINEST vol. II and DC UNIVERSE: SECRET ORIGINS.

– Part II: THE VENGEANCE OF SUPERMAN AND BATMAN (9 pgs.).

– THE IRRESISTIBLE LOIS LANE, writer unknown according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics, while the Grand Comic Book Database and the Comic Book Database credit Robert Bernstein. The story was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye. It was originally published in SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 29, November 1961, published on September 21, 1961 (six days before my first birthday). This story would also be reprinted in SUPERMAN FAMILY 171, June/July 1975, published on March 11, 1975. It contained 64 pages for the cover price of 50¢.

Also highlighted in the episode are the ads and other features, including the COMING SUPER ATTRACTIONS column. Among other things it solicited ideas for the name of an upcoming letters column for this series. If you’re like me and know the name of that letter column, comment on this episode or send an e-mail, and you’ll be immortalized on the internet when I read your names on the episode when we cover the first WORLD’S FINEST COMICS letter column.

Talking It Out

For this Young Readers show, Paul and Gwen change things up a bit by hosting a roundtable on the state of children’s and YA comics with two amazing scholars: Dr. Charles Hatfield, professor in the department of English at California State University, Northridge, and his new college, Dr. Krystal Howard, an assistant professor who is dual appointed in English and Liberal Studies.

The conversation in this month’s episode includes a number of timely topics, including the way scholars define children’s and YA comics, the challenges and benefits of teaching children’s comics, and the exciting formal aspects of comics, as well as other categories, such as verse novels.

Charles had just returned from the San Diego Comic Con, and he shared a list of sessions that were held in conjunction with SDCC at the San Diego Public Library, as well as commentary on this year’s nominees in the three award areas devoted to young readers: Best Publication for Early Readers, Best Publication for Kids, and Best Publication for Teens.

Another rich topic for discussion among the panelists was the portrayal of children in comics written for adults. Recent releases mentioned in this regard included Emil Ferris’s My Favorite Thing Is Monsters, Nick Drnaso’s Beverly, and Brecht Evens’ Panther. Recommended children’s texts that seem to be breaking conventions include Eric Orchard’s Bera, the One-Headed Troll, Drew Weing’s The Creepy Case Files of Margo Maloo, and favorite texts to teach included Luke Pearson’s Hilda series, Barry Deutsch’s Hereville series, and Lewis/Aydin/Powell’s March series, among others.

If listeners have been looking for a good list of must-read children’s and YA comics, this roundtable delivers on that count.
