Trivia

  • On a press release issued by DC Comics after Robert Kanigher's death, Julius Schwartz recalled an specific anecdote about this issue. Schwartz claimed that when Kanigher looked at the cover art, he attached a small note that read "Drop an Inch". This was meant to be a correction on the art, but the vagueness of the message caused the letterer to include a tagline caption promoting a story with that title. When the full cover came with the wrong tagline and in order to meet the deadline, Kanigher scripted a whole story under the title "Drop an Inch" during his lunch break.[1][2]
