Superboy #169

Superboy #169 (On Sale: August 20, 1970) has a cover by Curt Swan and Murphy Anderson. There is a new circular Superboy logo in the upper left corner. 

The cover story is "No Escape for Superboy!" This 22-page tale is by Frank Robbins, Bob Brown and Murphy Anderson. Bob Brown is not one of my favorite pencilers, but he had some great inkers on Superboy, mainly Anderson and Wally WoodLana Lang takes Superboy to a mysterious gypsy for a fortune-telling session. The fortune-teller’s predictions all seem to come true...including one prophesying the “death” of Clark Kent...because Lex Luthor’s hand guides them to fruition.

The back-up feature is "Hi! A lot of you have asked about my super-costume..." a two-pager by E. Nelson Bridwell, Bob Brown and Mike Esposito.
