ACTION COMICS 306, November 1963, was published on September 26, 1963 (one day before my third birthday). It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 12¢. The editor was Mort Weisinger, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by George Klein.

– The 12 page Superman story was titled, THE GREAT SUPERMAN IMPERSONATION, written by Robert Bernstein (although the Grand Comic Book Database puts a question mark by his name. In the episode I mistakenly said that it listed the writer as unknown). This story has been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN vol. IV.

– The 14 page Supergirl story was titled, THE MAID OF DOOM, written by Leo Dorfman and drawn by Jim Mooney. This story has been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERGIRL vol. II.

Elsewhere in DC Comics, 29 titles carried the November or November/December 1963 cover date.

Also highlighted in this episode are the issue’s ads and other features, including the METROPOLIS MAILBAG letter column.
