Download Episode 343 Part II!

With our coverage of MegaCon 2016 over, we step back to finish our look at the Superman Family comic books cover dated May 1962, this time featuring SUPERMAN'S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 33. 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. It featured the issue's first story.

- THE PHANTOM LOIS LANE (9 pgs.), writer unknown according to Mike's Amazing World Of DC Comics. The Grand Comic Book Database lists Jerry Siegel? as the possible writer. Since there is some disagreement with the writer credit, we won't credit it towards Siegel's silver age production. The story was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by George Klein, and was reprinted in SUPERMAN: TALES FROM THE PHANTOM ZONE.

- THE CANDID CAMERA KID (8 pgs.), writer unknown according to Mike's Amazing World Of DC Comics, while the Grand Comic Book Database lists Jerry Coleman (?) as the possible writer. The artist was Kurt Schaffenberger.

- LOIS LANE, SLAVE GIRL (9 pgs.), writer unknown according to Mike's Amazing World Of DC Comics. The Grand Comic Book Database and Comic Book Database.com credit Robert Bernstein as the writer. The artist was Kurt Schaffenberger. This story was also reprinted in SUPERMAN'S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 95, September/October 1969, published on July 8, 1969. It was a 64 Pg. Giant for the cover price of 25¢.

Also highlighted in this episode are the issue's ads and other features, including the LETTERS TO LOIS COLUMN.

This episode begins with the monthly MY PULL LIST segment, where I review the June 2016 comic books, published in April, from the Discount Comic Book Service.

Elsewhere in DC Comics, 29 titles carried the May or May/June 1962 cover date, according to Mike's Amazing World Of Comics. They were covered at the end of Episode 276, for the week of Wednesday, August 7, 2013.
