  • Series continues from Action Comics.
  • For the previous issue see Action Comics #600.
  • The Superman story is reprinted in Superman: The Power Within #1 - TPB.
  • As stated in the letter column by Mike Gold, the reason the Superman stories in Action Comics Weekly are only two pages is because they want to "...recapture the spirit of those old Superman Sunday strips." And, "...by evoking the pacing of the classic Superman Sunday strip of the 1940s and 1950s."
