Cover Price: US $ 0.40

Issue Tagline: The story you demanded--the life of Superman's father--JOR-EL!

Format: Color; Standard Comic Issue; 32 pages

Story Arc(s):    Add/remove story arcs to this issue

Synopsis:
Superman finds the diary of his father. Playing it back in the Fortress of Solitude, he uncovers the story of Jor-El's youth, education, early employment with Krypton's space agency, and his fledgling romance with astronaut cadet Lara Lor-Van.

After a tortured application process for a marriage license, the story ends with the arrival of an adult Kal-El to witness the wedding of Jor-El and Lara . . .

Reprinted/Collected in:
Superman-Sonderausgabe (1976) #5
The World of Krypton (1979) TPB

Notes:
The how and why of Kal-El's arrival on Krypton is underplayed so much in this story that it's not very clear at all what's going on. Readers of Superman (1939) #141, however, will realize that it is a fact of Earth-1 continuity that Superman did indeed witness his biological parents' wedding.
