Batman gets a cameo on the cover and inside but from now on--for the time being--WORLD'S FINEST is a Superman title! Julius Schwartz took over with instructions to modernize the character and much of Weisinger's "Superman Family" moved at least to the background. Superman and Flash had already had two races but this was to be the big one. One thing that Julie kept from recent issues was the two-part concept. One thing he brought to the mix was the new creative team of Denny O'Neil, Dick Dillin and Joe Giella. The artists were veterans from way back. Dillin was probably best-known for his years on BLACKHAWK which, by 1970, had recently ended its long run. Over the next decade Dillin would draw more superheroes than just about anybody as he took on the Justice League during its heaviest membership and guest hero period!
Somebody somewhere still wanted to keep the Editor's Round Table. I don't get it. At least this one is pertinent. I believe this entire story was posted on our DAYS OF ADVENTURE blog.
