SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 8, October 1955, was published around August 23, 1955. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 10 cents. Mort Weisinger was the editor, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Ray Burnley. All three eight page stories were written by Otto Binder, pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Ray Burnley, and have been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY vol. I.

– THE BETRAYAL OF SUPERMAN!

– SUPERBOY FOR A DAY!
– JIMMY OLSEN, CROONER!

Elsewhere in DC Comics that month, 31 titles carried the October or October/November 1955 cover date.

Also, I share my opinions about the controversy in ACTION COMICS 900.
