Great Comics That Never Happened #11: Jimmy Olsen Cosplays Comic-Con

In our recurring original art feature, writer Chris Sims and artist Rusty Shackles carry on the noble comic book tradition of the imaginary story by bringing you the Best Comics Ever that don’t actually exist! This week, as you may have heard, we’re heading out to the San Diego Comic-Con, and we were wondering what it might be like if one of our favorite comic book characters went with us!

Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen Comic-Con Special #1 (1962)Writer: C! Joseph Simswell
Artist: Russ T. Shaffenberkles

Everyone knows that the world’s biggest collection of Superman souvenirs belongs to the Man of Steel’s best pal, Jimmy Olsen! But when Jimmy heads to sunny California to exhibit his collection at the Superman Convention, it gets stolen by crooks who plan to use the objects to defeat their arch-nemesis once and for all — And what’s more, they’ve blended into a crowd made up entirely of people in fanciful costumes! Now, Jimmy must recover his collection using his last souvenir — a disguise kit that turns him from the Daily Planet’s cub reporter into an undercover Space Princess!

(Based on the cover of “Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen” #1)
