Superman's Pal - part 6

Jimmy had realtionship woes as well, even the marriage variety as seen here.

What I love most is that these were issues #75 and #100, apparently no big deal when comics sold hundreds of thousands of copies per issue as they did then. Now, these issue numbers would be seen as milestone issues and would have some sort of gimmick attached to them, much like sweeps week on television; double the number of pages, special artists or some earth shattering plot development or new costume. Anything to try and boost sales.
