Jimmy Olsen Ad


In case you ever doubted that the reason that Superman's pal, Jimmy Olsen (as well as Lois Lane later on) got their own mags was because of the success of George Reeves' ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, here's the original DC ad for Jimmy's new book. Note the wording: "You've seen Jimmy on television..." Nuff Said! (OOPS! Sorry, Stan).Add Image

What If! Batman and Robin got their
own tv show in the 1950's instead
of Superman?
Would Alfred and Vicki Vale have gotten their own spin-off titles
based on the popularity of the tv
series?
I know, sounds farfetched. But whoever thought that Jimmy Olsen
and Lois Lane would receive their
own comic titles that ran for many
issues and years?
And, when Jack Kirby came over from
Marvel to DC, would he have taken
over the Adventures of Alfred comic and revitalized it?
Okay, time to leave Bizarro World!
