Originally when I updated this post, by mistake I placed the covers from 1966 instead of the covers from 1965. The covers above are the correct issues and the 3/65, 4/65 & 5/65 issues feature the manga version of the anime episode "Earth Defense Squadron/Moon Monsters".

[The Feb. issue features the last installment of the manga episode known as "Jangaru MaKyo"(English anime title--"Jungle Mystery".)] --Astrobuddy

While I do think the American issue floppy format only had limited success in Japan, it seems that the Mighty Atom Club is one of the more successful attempts considering it lasted around 3 years.
