This controversial 1970 issue of Lois Lane features the titular reporter using a Kryptonian “Plastimold Machine” to become a black woman for a day in order to work her way into a black community to explore the truth about racism.   Exploitative, or genuine attempt at teaching about social injustice?  It’s been the subject of many a debate in the decades since.


COVER:  Cover shows moderate wear, with an accumulation of creases and dimples.   Moderate scuffing visible down the length of the spine. The book’s cover is firmly attached to the interiors.   


INTERIORS: Paper is off-white, and fairly supple – no signs of brittleness.  No tears or interior writing detected, all pages are present.


SPINE:  No spine roll present, but creases and color breaks are present at several places up and down the spine.   There is a fraction of an inch spine split developing from the bottom.
