Meanwhile, in Gotham City, the great Olsen/Batman prank war rages on. An old favorite returns to make heads or tails of just what the heck has been going on. Jimmy does some funny Fraction stuff. Batman is there, too, doing some Lieber stuff. Lex Luthor's kicking around. It's a whole thing.

    Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen is some damn fine comic-bookery. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Dec 21, 2019

    Supermans Pal Jimmy Olsen #6 is a stunning issue of comics, one of a so-far tremendous run. The only downside of hitting the midpoint is the knowledge that there are only six issues left in this tremendous series. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Dec 20, 2019

    This book, month in and month out, is the balm for the dark comics that burn on the shelves. I can only hope, once this maxi-series ends, that we get more of this team and these characters. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Dec 23, 2019

    This is a very different book. Fraction really has a knack for offbeat stories and it works wonderfully here. The art is quirky and very fun. It may be a book that is a little off the radar. But it is worth finding. It is a very entertaining comic book. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Dec 18, 2019

    A “lesser” issue of Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen is still pretty much superior to everything else out there, and such is the case here. There's just the slightest feeling that Fraction and Lieber tried to rein in the organized insanity so they could progress the plot, even just a little, which takes away just a teensy little bit of the book's goofy charm. Not nearly enough to leave a lasting impression, mind you, but just enough to be noticeable. Still, this book has been nothing but great from the beginning, and when a hilarious cameo from Batman is only the third greatest thing in your issue, you know you've got solid gold there, chums.

    This feels like a much better experiment than it does a story at the moment. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Dec 18, 2019

    Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen #6 not only marks the midway point of the series but acts as a set up for the next half. While not featuring an abundance of the titular character or his exploits, it is filled with necessary components that will definitely lead to more hilarity in the future. And, on its own, it's filled with great humor and interesting developments. If anything, this issue proves the series has legs and will continue into 2020 with the same quality it started with.
