SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 20, April 1957, was published around February 21, 1957 (which was my late Grandmother’s 47th birthday). This issue contained 32 pages for the cover price of a dime. Mort Weisinger was the editor, 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 inked by Ray Burnley. They have been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY vol. I.
