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.
