A collection of Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane stories, mostly from the 1950's, mostly written by Otto Binder and pencilled by Curt Swan. I have a certain affectionate nostalgia for these stories, ridiculous as many of the plots are. They remind me of a simpler and more innocent time, when the many plot inanities and characterizations, and mediocre artwork, didn't bother me. But the deficiencies are there, with 1950's sensibilities and stereotypes in abundance. Included here is the first solo Lois Lane story, from 1944, and what I believe is the first appearance of an adult Lana Lang. I'm not sure if this predates her appearance in the Superboy comics. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

For reporters Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane no assignment is too perilous, no locale too remote, and no dilemma too dangerous when Superman is only an ultrasonic distress call away.
