David King covers Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen 77

Original cover by Curt Swan and George Klein; DC 1964. David King's website is here.


  1. I've been waiting all summer for this one. Hurray!

  2. YEAH! I love David King's stuff! One of my favourite covers on Covered.

  3. I love David's cover....
    Jimmy has real weight in this drawing.
    Like Weissman said, I've been looking forward to many Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen covers. They are inherently fun, goofy and full of innuendo.
    Also, David's brushwork is really nice. The buildings look especially nice.
    Lucy's word balloon just cracks me up!

  4. Jimmy Olsen has become a hybrid of Howdy Doody and the old guy from Up.

  5. I love how he is wearing baggy shorts rather than a tight speedo. Great stuff.

  6. Such a simplified exchange of dialogue. And it says everything the original said... sort of. :P
