Country: United States
While numbering on this title continues from Superman's
Pal Jimmy Olsen, it's really a continuation of that book and two other
Girl Friend Lois Lane and Supergirl.
The publication went through two distinct phases. From its inception to issue
#181, it was mostly a place where stories from other titles (but mainly SPJO
and SGLL) were reprinted. Issues tended to have one original story per
issue. Readers could tell who was going to get the new material by looking to
the left of the main art frame on the cover. There, they'd see small images
of Lois, Jimmy and Supergirl. The image that appeared on top was the one who
got the "new" story.
Starting with issue #182, this "framing element" is removed from the covers,
and the book rarely saw reprinted material again.
