 SUPERMAN'S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 18, February 1957, was published around December 6, 1956. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of a dime. The editor was Mort Weisinger, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye, who were the art team for all three 8 page stories in this issue, which were written by Otto Binder. These stories have been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY vol. I.




Elsewhere in DC Comics, 33 titles carried the February or February/March 1957 cover date.
