WORLD'S FINEST COMICS 92, January/February 1958, was published around November 26, 1957 (two days before my Mother's 19th birthday). It contained 32 pages for the cover price of a dime. Mort Weisinger was the editor, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye.

The 12 page Superman/Batman story for this issue was titled THE BOY FROM OUTER SPACE, written by Edmond Hamilton, pencilled by Dick Sprang and inked by Stan Kaye. It was reprinted in WORLD'S FINEST ARCHIVES vol. II and SHOWCASE PRESENTS: WORLD'S FINEST vol. I.

Tomahawk starred in the 6 page story, THE INDIAN CANNONEERS, drawn by Fred Ray.

Green Arrow was featured in the 6 page story MARAUDERS FROM THE DEEP, drawn by George Papp.

Elsewhere in DC Comics, 33 titles carried the January or January/February 1958 cover date, thanks to MIKE'S AMAZING WORLD OF DC COMICS.
