    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Feb 19, 2020

    Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen #8 is the 8th issue in a series that has consistently produced some of the best comic book-ing around. This chapter is filled to the brim with gut-busting humor. The characters continue to be a blast to watch. Jimmy is still going through transformations and getting into trouble. And the mysterious happenings surrounding him are getting bigger in proportion and closer in proximity. The team behind this book is on fire and making sure this maxi-series goes down as one of the greats. Read Full Review

    A riff on 70s Jimmy, 90s Reign of the Superman, and Gorilla City CNN (ook,ook,ook) all makes this issue a complete win. Everyone should be reading this. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 19, 2020

    It's a completely absurdist tribute to the Silver Age, and while its narrative is a bit inscrutable at times, it's the most unique comic on the stands. This book is an experience more than a story. Read Full Review
