Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #76

Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #76 (On Sale: June 27, 1967) features a Kurt Schaffenberger cover.

"The Demon in the Bottle" is by Leo Dorfman and Kurt Schaffenberger. While surfing, Lois Lane discovers a genie in a bottle. Lois releases the genie and uses his powers to help attract Superman. Lana soon discovers the genie and also begins using him to gain Superman's affections. Neither girl realizes that the genie is really a Kandorian named Vitar who has fallen in love from afar with both girls. He has enlarged himself and pretended to be a genie in order to be close to the girls and choose between them.

When the girls find themselves in peril, Vitar comes to their rescue dressed as Superman. However, the real Man of Steel arrives and forces Vitar to admit his true purpose. Lois and Lana then agree to accompany Vitar back to Kandor to see if they would like it there enough to stay and become Vitar's wife. Those "LL" girls must be really hot to have all these aliens falling in love with them!

ive really come to appreciate just how good Schaffenberger was. i wonder how he felt, getting the AMAZINGLY silly LL stories to do every month!

I almost hate to bring this up, but when I look at Lois on this Schaffenberger cover and I think of the "LL"s, I think of an eventual Lois Lane film, where Superman is just another member of the supporting cast that plays against Lois, this ditsy reporter who has a talent for getting into trouble and this "friend" who can get her out of just about any mess she makes. And like I said, looking at this cover, it would have to star that other "LL," Lindsay Lohan.

in another universe (Earth 2?) there'd be a wacky screwball comedy about Lois Lane, Intrepid Reporter, starring Parker Posey!
