Title

Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen, no. 12

Description

This long-running series blends humor and adventure, as the well-meaning but somewhat inept reporter Jimmy Olsen stumbles into situations, many involving the help of Superman, that lead to stories in Metropolis’ Daily Planet newspaper. As Jonathan Friedmann notes, “the comic book began as a spin-off from the popular Adventures of Superman television series (1952–8), which co-starred Jack Larson as the naive cub reporter” (44). In this issue, Jimmy Olsen performs as a circus clown, visits dinosaurs on Mystic Isle, and, as depicted on the cover, becomes invisible when transported to the fourth dimension. (Reference: Jonathan L. Friedmann, “When Jimmy Blew the Shofar: Midrash and Musical Invective in Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen,” Journal of Religion and Popular Culture 28.1 (Spring 2016): 43-53.)
