Now that MegaCon is over, we’re returning through the time barrier to pick up our journey through the silver age adventures of Superman, and finishing our look at the Superman titles cover dated January 1963.

SUPERMAN ANNUAL 6, cover dated Winter 1962 – 1963, was published on November 15, 1962 (5 years later this date would be when my sister was born). It contained 80 pages for the cover price of a quarter. The editor was Mort Weisinger, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by George Klein.

– THE FIRST TWO SUPERMAN (13 pgs.), written by Otto Binder, pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Ray Burnley. This story was originally published in ADVENTURE COMICS 257, February 1959, released around December 30, 1958. (I mistakenly stated that the cover date was February 1958, and the release date was around December 30, 1957.)

– THE FIRST SUPERGIRL (10 pgs.), was part I of the 3-part story THE GIRL OF STEEL, originally published in SUPERMAN 123, August 1958, released around June 17, 1958.

– THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES (11 pgs.), written by Otto Binder and drawn by Al Plastino, originally published in ADVENTURE COMICS 247, April 1958, released around February 27, 1958 (which would be my son’s birthday in 1990).

– LOIS LANE WEDS ASTOUNDING MAN (9 pgs.), was written by Otto Binder (according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics), while comics.org credits Jerry Siegel as the writer. Both sources agree on the penciller, Kurt Schaffenberger.

– THE MYSTERY OF MIGHTY BOY (19 pages), was written by Otto Binder and drawn by George Papp, originally published in SUPERBOY 85, December 1960, released on October 6, 1960.

This was the final panel I attended Sunday, and my final panel for MegaCon 2014. It started around 1:45 p.m., at the same time the AGES OF HEROES ERAS OF MEN panel was ending, so I joined the Kickstarter panel already in progress. The panelists were Jimmy Palmiotti, Frank Tieri and Nelson DeCastro. They answered questions from the audience and shared their experiences with Kickstarter projects to give advice on the do’s and don’ts of doing a Kickstarter project.

This was the third and final panel I attended at MegaCon on Saturday, March 22, 2014. It was not a how-to on breaking in to comic book stores or comic book publisher offices, but rather an informative panel of five comic book professionals sharing their stories on how they broke in to the industry and began their careers. During the discussion, they shared tips on how to’s and not do’s for others to get their break in the comic book industry.

No, you haven’t missed an episode. Preparing to cover seven stories in SUPERMAN ANNUAL 6 took longer than expected, and home life used up some more spare time, so we will jump back through the time barrier after my MegaCon coverage and finish up the Superman titles cover dated January 1963, and resume our regular schedule through the time barrier. In this episode, I highlight the convention guests and panels I plan on seeing, including those I had to miss on Friday because my car was in the repair shop until the early afternoon that day.
