Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #10
Look, I’m not gonna try and play semi-professional comic book reviewer here. The world kinda feels like it’s in a tailspin right now and we need more feel-good, completely and utterly fun books like this issue.
In this one, writer Matt Fraction and artist Steve Lieber have Jimmy repel an alien invasion with banana peels, reveal why someone put the hit out on Jimmy in the first place and even works in a Godfather reference.
The narration boxes are hilarious as Fraction spoofs serial storytelling. Lieber never seems at a loss for bringing high energy and playful visuals into every panel.
This is a book where the creative team is perfectly content being as outrageous and goofy as possible and readers are all the better for it.
Need a laugh? You’re not going to find a better option this week thanks to another fun installment of Superman’s Pal.
