Notes:
SPECIAL FEATURES include: (1) a JLA Crossword Puzzle, (2) a Superhero Boots Quiz, (3) a JLA Trivia Quiz, and (4) "JLA Heroes of the Past," hosted by Snapper Carr and profiling several JLA alumni.

This issue's feature story is sometimes cited as PAUL LEVITZ's earliest writing credit, but over the course of a wide-ranging interview with Rik Offenberger Levitz refuted that and revealed that "Felton Marcus" was a pen name for MARK HANERFELD. ("Paul Levitz: Living in an Amazing World," undated interview posted at comicsbulletin.com.)

Adding to the nostalgic buzz this issue brings is a two-page spread headlined "Shazam! It's Socko Saturday on CBS," an ad promoting the 1974-75 lineup. The highlight that season was Filmation's live-action SHAZAM. Also debuting was THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY (set in the year 2200 and "rockin' and rollin' from Mars to Venus with outer-space friends and outta sight songs!"), THE U.S. OF ARCHIE ("Archie and the Gang, in a whole new scene... tripping through America's past!), "VALLEY OF THE DINOSAURS, and another pair of live-action shows: THE HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS POPCORN MACHINE and THE HUDSON BROTHERS RAZZLE-DAZZLE COMEDY SHOW that together promised to "make Saturdays on CBS the biggest giggle-day of the week!"

Mark was my predecessor on TCR, an earlier assistant to Joe Orlando, and a dear friend to both Len Wein and me, but he definitely wasn’t me."
