SUPERMAN'S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 45, November 1963, was published on September 26, 1963 (the day before my third birthday). It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 12¢. The editor was Mort Weisinger, and the cover was drawn by Kurt Schaffenberger, featuring the issue's first, of three, eight page stories. (I mistakenly said during the recording that he also drew all three stories in this issue.)
- THE SUPERMAN - LOIS HIT RECORD, writer unknown, according to Mike's Amazing World Of DC Comics, while the Grand Comic Book Database credits Jerry Siegel as the writer. Since there is some disagreement about the writer credit, we won't credit this story toward his silver age production. The penciller was Curt Swan and the inker was George Klein. This story was also reprinted in SUPERMAN FAMILY 170 (which, beginning with issue 164, continued the numbering of Jimmy Olsen's title), April/May 1975, published on January 16, 1975. It contained 64 pages for the cover price of 50¢.
- THE GIRL WITH THE GOLDEN ARM, drawn by Kurt Schaffenberger.
- DEAR DR. CUPID, writer unknown according to Mike's Amazing World Of DC Comics, while the Grand Comic Book Database credits Jerry Siegel as the writer. Since there is some disagreement on the writer credit, we won't count this story toward his silver age production.
Also highlighted in this episode are the issue's ads and other features, including the LETTERS TO LOIS column.
Elsewhere in DC Comics, 29 titles carried the November or November/December cover date, according to Mike's Amazing World Of DC Comics.
