This one really represents the end of an era, as it serves as the swansong of both the Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen titles. In addition, this was one of the last anthology series published by DC. It many ways, it is amazing that Superman Family hung on as long as it did - as it seems to be steeped in Silver Age traditions. On the other hand, it was always a very entertaining titles with artwork by some industry stalwarts, such as Bob Oksner and Win Mortimer, that were not getting much work elsewhere. It is too bad that DC didn't take the opportunity to commission a special cover commemorating this final issue, featuring of of the title's stars. I do like this cover, though, as Frank Giacoia is a decent inker for Gil Kane. Inside, we've got the typical short but sturdy stories. Mr. and Mrs. Superman was always my favourite strip, and I'd be interested in hearing whether it every appeared in any way, shape or form. Supergirl fans would not have to mourn for very long, however, as the Daring Adventures of Supergirl were just around the corner.
