Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen   (1954)
Search for 'Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen' on eBay

Publisher: DC Comics

Publication Date: Sep/Oct 1954 - Feb/Mar 1974

Country: United States

Language: English

Notes:
Though this title is often ignored by modern comics readers, it played an important part in defining the Earth 1 Superman.
It introduced a number of different characters and concepts that many today probably think came from Action or Superman.
In its later years, it was a vital part of Jack Kirby's innovations to the DCU.

Interestingly, though a home to Jack Kirby's work, it also serves as an example of artist's rights versus those of the company that owns the character.
Mark Evanier, the closest thing Kirby has to an official biographer, has written at length on his website about how Kirby came to work on a declining title
in an unregarded corner of the DCU, and how Kirby's artistic interpretations of Superman and JImmy Olsen were suppressed by DC.

While apparently a solo title, in fact the backup stories in this anthological series sometimes had nothing to do with Jimmy Olsen.

No issue in this title had only one story. Therefore the title of the first story should not be confused with the title of the issue as a whole.
