Comic Book Cats, number 83: Superman’s Girl Friend, Lois Lane #70, drawn by Kurt Schaffenberger and written by Leo Dorfman, published by DC Comics in November 1966.

This zany two-part story features all number of oddball occurrences, among them Catwoman hypnotizing Lois Lane into thinking that she is actually Catwoman, and Catwoman using the mystical Wand of Circe to transform Superman into a ca, complete with a red “S” on his chest. All of this craziness is wonderfully illustrated by Kurt Schaffenberger.

I’ve always liked Schaffenberger’s somewhat cartoony style, which I feel was a really good fit for all of the zany antics that occurred with alarming regularity in the Superman stories of the Silver Age.

Among the many Superman comic books that Schaffenberger drew were the enjoyable “Mr. and Mrs. Superman” back-up stories, which spotlighted the married life of Clark Kent and Lois Lane on Earth-2. I hope one of these days those get collected. Schaffenberger is unfortunately a rather underrated artist, and I feel his work is definitely due for a reappraisal.
