The manga stories in "Mighty Atom Club" magazine were not drawn by Dr. Tezuka, but were included in the reprint series of "Mighty Atom"manga only because they were drawn by manga artists who later became famous as manga artists in their own right.

The manga Stories featured in"Mighty Atom Club"magazine were either later adapted into anime episodes or were manga adaptations of episodes already aired as part of the 1960s anime series.

The last issue was the 11/66 issue which featured a manga story drawn by manga artist, Yutaka Ono and does not seem to be a story that was adapted into an anime episode or adapted from an anime episode.
What we do know is that it seems to be about "a mysterious girl robot named "Elina" who is targeting good, strong robots one after another and has challenged Atom to a fight. She apparently meets a sad end." Maybe BrutalDawnFawn will have more information in the future.--Astrobuddy

Just ordered 1964-09 & 1966-07. There were 4 in the alert Mandrake sent this morning, but, I was late in reading email, & two had already been snapped-up! Assuming these are actually available, I will have just about 6 more remaining to be bought!
