Download Episode 318 Part II!

SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 50, January 1961, was published around November 22, 1960. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of a dime. The editor was Mort Weisinger, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye. It featured the issue’s third and final story. All three stories have been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY vol. IV.

– THE LORD OF OLSEN CASTLE (9 pgs.), was written by Jerry Siegel, pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Sheldon Moldoff. This is the 59th Jerry Siegel Superman family story covered in this podcast,(the 119th he wrote up to the Superman stories we’ve covered in SUPERMAN and ACTION COMICS up to the November 1963 cover date), and the 160th Siegel story we’ve covered so far on this podcast. Previously, he wrote two stories for SUPERBOY 86, January 1961, published around November 22, 1960: THE SUPER COWARD drawn by Al Plastino and THE ARMY OF LIVING KRYPTONITE MEN, drawn by George Papp.

– THE WEIRDEST ASTEROID IN SPACE (8 pgs.), written by Otto Binder, pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Sheldon Moldoff.

– THE SUPER-LIFE OF JIMMY OLSEN (9 pgs.), writer unknown, drawn by Al Plastino.

Also highlighted in this episode are the issue’s ads and other features, including the JIMMY OLSEN’S PEN PALS letter column.

Elsewhere in DC Comics, 27 titles carried the January or January/February 1961 cover date, according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics. They were covered back in Episode 232 for the week of July 4, 2012.

Next Episode:  MEGACON 2015 PREVIEW!

After my MegaCon Episodes; SUPERMAN COMIC BOOK COVER DATED DECEMBER 1963: ACTION COMICS 307! (I have to correct myself from last episode when I included SUPERMAN 166 and SUPERMAN ANNUAL 8. Those carry the January 1964 cover date and will be covered in about a month.)

View from the Gutters — Emerald City Comic Con 2015

Back Matter is our roundtable discussion show focused on discussion that doesn’t make it into our main show, including interviews, news and events in the comics industry, television and movies, or discussions of comics which open onto a broader conversation. Feel free to email us discussion ideas or any comments or questions you might have at

On this episode of Back Matter, we report on our experiences at Emerald City Comic Con 2015, held in Seattle, Washington. We discuss what we saw, the creators we met, and the sights and sounds of the Emerald City.

Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Kayleigh Fleeman, Kirbotron 2000, and Tobiah Panshin.

EJDAC Ep. 19: Focal Points


Disagreetings! Erik and James discuss Daredevil #14, Deadpool #44, New Avengers #32, and Nova #23. Also, Erik laments the end of Elektra with the series finale #11, and he jumps in on Secret Avengers #14 and has no idea what the hell is going on. Also our heroes weigh in on the recently-revealed cover of the All-New, All-Different Avengers team premiering on Free Comic Book Day. It’s a Friday night episode, so James was kind of sleepy and maybe a little crankier than usual. Comics and beers, cheers! Recorded on March 27th, 2015.
