How to use an abbreviation:

(WK No. 1, Jul 1979: "The Jor-El Story!")


World of Krypton issue #1, cover date July 1979. The name of the story contained in the issue is "The Jor-El Story!"

if a comic book contains more than one story, a / appears after the issue number followed by which story it is in the issue. For example,

(Adv No. 283/1, Apr 1961: "The Phantom Superboy!")

means Adventure Comics #283, cover date April 1961, from the first story in the issue, "The Phantom Superboy!"


(S No. 233/2, Jan 1971: "Jor-El's Golden Folly!")

means Superman #233, cover date January 1971, from the second story in the issue (in this case, a back-up feature), "Jor-El's Golden Folly!"
