Notes:
This is the only Giant that actually has the word annual on its cover. In practice, though, they were all annuals.
Despite the tagline which states that the issues features "SUPERMAN'S most fabulous IMAGINARY adventures", not all the stories feature Superman, nor are they all outside of normal continuity.

Of course, if you wanted to be really pedantic, they all became entirely imaginary stories following Crisis on Infinite Earths. Then following Infinite Crisis they suddenly became in-continuity again for Earth-1, whose existence DC now re-acknowledges.

The back cover contains 4 covers to the 3rd issue of the Giant Lois Lane Annual (Co-Starring Lana Lang!)

Synopsis:
After overhearing Superboy make some bitingly sexist remarks, Shar-La—an alien female from a matriarchal planet—turns Superboy into a female. In this form, he learns a little about what it's like to endure the indignities of being female in the male-dominated society of mid-20th century America. When he's returned to his normal self, Superboy takes with him a bit of wisdom he'll later need in his relationship with the self-assured Lois Lane.
