Episode #243: Superman Family Comic Book Cover Dated June 1958: Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #29!

Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #29!



SUPERMAN'S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 29, June 1958, was published around April 15, 1958. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 10¢. The editor was Mort Weisinger, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye. All three 8 page stories were done by the same creative team: writer Otto Binder, penciller Curt Swan and inker Ray Burnley, and were reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY vol. II.

- THE SUPERMAN BOOK THAT COULDN'T BE FINISHED was also reprinted in 80 PAGE GIANT 1, August 1964, and will be covered in a future episode.

- JIMMY OLSEN'S SUPER PET

- THE AMAZING SPECTACLES OF DR. X, which was featured on the cover.

Elsewhere in DC Comics, 32 titles carried the June or June/July 1958 cover date. Since these titles were covered at the beginning of our look at the silver age Superman stories in Episode 160, beginning around the 26:55 mark, we will not be covering these titles again during the Superman Family episodes. If you would like to explore the other DC Comics titles published this month, go to Mike's Amazing World Of DC Comics. This link will take you directly to the page which shows all of the DC titles that carried the June or June/July 1958 cover date. The Elsewhere In DC Comics segment will continue in the Superman episodes covering the ACTION COMICS and SUPERMAN titles.
