SUPERMAN'S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 52, April 1961, was published around February 16, 1961. It contained 32 pages, still 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. It featured the issue's third and final story. All three stories in this issue have been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY vol. IV.
- THE SPECTER OF THE HAUNTED HOUSE (9 pgs.), written by Leo Dorfman, pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye.
- THE PERILS OF JIMMY OLSEN (9 pgs.), writer unknown, was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by John Forte.
- JIMMY OLSEN, WOLF-MAN (9 pgs.), written by Jerry Siegel, pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye. This story was Siegel's 59th silver age Superman family story, and his 99th overall which we have covered on this podcast so far.
Also highlighted in this episode are the issue's ads and other features, including the JIMMY OLSEN'S PEN PALS letter column.
