Though the issue contains a single story, "Superman in Kandor", it is divided into three parts: "Invasion of the Mystery SUPER-MEN!", "The Dynamic Duo of Kandor!", and "The City of Super-People!". Each part appears to have the same creative team.

"For years my favorite Superman story was the one in which Superman and Jimmy Olsen visit another dimension, another world where Jimmy gets a costume, too, and superpowers. (I think his name is Flame Bird or something like that.) I got to create their costumes and those cities. I had fun with that."

--Curt Swan in 1986
