Cover pencils by Curt Swan, inks by Stan Kaye. “Voyage to Dimension X!”, script by Otto Binder, art by Al Plastino;
A cool Superman “other Dimension” tale: Lex Luthor has an elaborate plan to trap Superman by posing as aliens from another dimension. (looks like a creature from an Outer Limits episode!
But more “key” is a great Supergirl back-up story “Supergirl’s Fortress of Solitude!”, story scripted by Superman creator Jerry Siegel, with great Jim Mooney art
- Supergirl’s identity is learned: Supergirl builds herself a secret Fortress of Solitude, but it is found by explorers who use the information (to try to adopt) then blackmail Supergirl into making them rich.
- lots of “action” in the story thanks to STREAKY the Supercat, Supergirl’s pet!
- see summary of story-“sneak peeks”
Note: Streaky 1st appeared in Action Comics issue #261; the story was reprinted in a great DC 80 Pg Giant (Action #334, March 1966) which featured all cool Supergirl tales from prior Action comics.
