SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 46, July 1960, was published on May 19, 1960. it 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. It featured Supergirl in her first cover appearance in Jimmy’s title. All three stories in this issue have been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY vol. IV.

– JIMMY OLSEN – ORPHAN (9 pgs.), was written by Jerry Siegel and pencilled by Curt Swan. Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics and the Grand Comic Book Database credit John Forte as the inker, while comicbookdatabase.com credits George Klein. This story was also reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERGIRL vol. I. This story was Jerry Siegel’s 97th Superman Family story, and his 142nd overall for the era. Previously, Siegel wrote four stories (I mistakenly said five in the recording):
