Notes

Trivia

  • This issue features one-page "Little Pete" and "Honey in Hollywood" humor strips by Henry Boltinoff.
  • The names Edaw-8 and Lorac-K7 are actually Wade and Carol spelled backwards. What significance this has in relation to this particular comic book or its creative team is unknown.
  • Wade-8 and Lorac-K7 are from the year 2958, the same time era as the Legion of Super-Heroes, who first appeared only three issues earlier in Adventure Comics #247. There is no connection between the two groups of time travelers, and for all intents and purposes, they have never met one another.
  • "The Green Arrows of the World" is loosely adapted from a previous story originally presented in Detective Comics #215 entitled, "The Batmen of All Nations".
