Superman's Pal - part 12

I'm concluding the run of Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane posts with these two 80-Page Giant issues of "Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen," as these are the last two covers I have available which are not in storage. I also have some equally goofy issues of various other DC titles from the same era which I will post at some point in the future.

I thank you all, whether you chose to remain silent, or whether you commented here, or privately via email, for dropping by. I especially would like to thank my longtime "Scooby-Doo" collaborator, and Bob Oskner fan, Robert Pope, for his frequent comments.

I did receive an email which asked what all this Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane stuff had to do with my work, and why wasn't I using my blog to talk more about myself and my work. Valid question, though I think my enthusiasm for "Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen" and "Superman's Girlfriend Lois Lane" speaks volumes about myself and my work.

At any rate, I will set about doing just that. Aside from plugging new and upcoming projects, I will set about tackling a labor intensive task regarding my prior work. I've been asked pretty regularly about, not only influences, but more specifically references made in my various comic book work. I thought it might be fun, and educational, to look through some of my work and talk about some of the references and "in-jokes" that I've dropped in along the way. I don't know with what frequency I'll be posting these nuggets of information, but look for the first one in about two weeks time.

in the meantime, more monkey business as usual.

Keep 'em coming! I've really been enjoying your cover posts. It makes me want to dig some of these out and start reading!

Jimmy seems entirely too practiced and at ease getting into his "mobster's moll" getup. And what sort of hat is he wearing as the "rock 'n' roll" star?

This was a time when comics were worth buying. When you got your money's worth. THESE are the "fun" comics that drives the memories of fans.
