These titles are listed as a group, as they were the only issues to feature the title: 

"DC 100 PAGE SUPER SPECTACULAR"

These books are listed by the COVER TITLE with the publisher's month of publication (as mentioned earlier, the date does not always coincide with the actual date that the book arrived on the shelf). As you browse downward on the list, you will note that the "Issue #" column is left blank on those issues that did not fall within the run of an existing title. In the letters page of the last issue to feature the original numbering system, E. Nelson Bridwell indicates that the next planned DC 100 Page Super Spectactular would be SHAZAM! - however, when the next issues came out, they had advertisements and there were three titles in one month.

These are all of the 50 100-Pagers. PLEASE NOTE that only the first 19 issues (from "DC-4" through "DC-22") are fully wraparound covers with no advertisements. All subsequent issues have ads and are absent of any wraparound covers. Also the "Year" column is the year of solicitation, as is the month. The On-Sale dates are estimated based on the available data and evidence.

Please note that we are utilizing the publisher's (and Overstreet's) numbering for this particular list with the "DC" prefix associated with the number. Both E. Nelson Bridwell and Overstreet used this appelation in order to unify the series, rather than allowing the difference between "No. 4 and "DC-7" to spur ideas that these were separate series.
