Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen in "The Bride of Jungle Jimmy!" (DC Comics; 1966)

The twelve days of Christmas continues in the Catacombs with even more non-holiday specific gifts from yours truly. Today's classic story is taken from Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #98 (Dec. 1966). This fun tale was written by Leo Dorfman and drawn by the great Pete Costanza. This wacky story is a typical example of the kind of goofy stuff that the Superman universe characters were mired in for many years, and these days that certain level of charm is deeply missed by older fans who've grown tired of the darker, endlessly angst-driven, supposedly "mature" drivel that passes itself off as comic books.

The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belong to DC Comics and/or the original creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.
