SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 45, April 7, 2014, was published on April 7, 1960. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 10¢. The editor was Mort Weisinger, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye, It featured the issues first story (and reminded me of the cover to SUPERMAN 123, August 1958, which featured the very first Supergirl story. That story was covered back in Episode 123 for the week of Wednesday, March 2, 2011). All three stories have been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY vol. IV. The art team for all three stories was penciller Curt Swan and inker John Forte.
