This issue's feature story is sometimes cited as PAUL LEVITZ's earliest writing credit, but over the course of a wide-ranging interview with Rik Offenberger Levitz refuted that and revealed that "Felton Marcus" was a pen name for MARK HANERFELD. ("Paul Levitz: Living in an Amazing World," undated interview posted at comicsbulletin.com.)
Adding to the nostalgic buzz this issue brings is a two-page spread headlined "Shazam! It's Socko Saturday on CBS," an ad promoting the 1974-75 lineup. The highlight that season was Filmation's live-action SHAZAM. Also debuting was THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY (set in the year 2200 and "rockin' and rollin' from Mars to Venus with outer-space friends and outta sight songs!"), THE U.S. OF ARCHIE ("Archie and the Gang, in a whole new scene... tripping through America's past!), "VALLEY OF THE DINOSAURS, and another pair of live-action shows: THE HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS POPCORN MACHINE and THE HUDSON BROTHERS RAZZLE-DAZZLE COMEDY SHOW that together promised to "make Saturdays on CBS the biggest giggle-day of the week!"
