Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #78

Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #78 (On Sale: August 10, 1967) features a Curt Swan and George Klein cover.

Inside we have "Courtship, Kryptonian Style" by Leo Dorfman and Kurt Schaffenberger, a continuation of the story from Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #76. Lois and Lana visit Kandor with Vitar who loves them both and hopes to marry one of them. Vitar is punished for leaving the city without permission, so the girls are left on their own temporarily. Each is given a new job with Lois becoming a detective and Lana an archaeologist.

Once his punishment sentence has been served, Vitar begins courting the girls again. However neither girl can forget Superman. Also Vitar's ex-girlfriend Serena Vol makes life difficult for the girls.

Finally Vitar sends the girls on a competitive mission to catch a crook. He promises to give the winner a super power serum so that she can return to Earth and marry Superman.

The backup story is a reprint from Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #2, "Superman's Forbidden Room" drawn by Wayne Boring and Stan Kaye. The elevator operator at the Daily Planet tricks Lois Lane into believing he is Superman. He then convinces her that he loves her and wants to marry her. Finally after fooling her sufficiently, he asks her to put a box in the Daily Planet safe for him. When she does, his crooked friends can steal some evidence from the safe.
