Aw, Rip! You MISSED a poifect cover! World's Finest #195 had Jimmy Olsen and Robin digging their own graves while Superman and Batman watched over their sidekicks! ;)
That is a sweet cover, but doesn't show them entombed. It does inspire for another thematic link on covers to be seen soon. Thanks!Rip Off
The Superman one was recently featured as a weekly banner at the GSBAMB http://www.comicboards.com/gsmb/Is that where you got the idea for a post?
Yep. I remembered that Jimmy cover when I chanced across the World's Finest cover. Rip Off
What the heck is going on with the wardrobe choices on that Jimmy Olsen cover by Adams? I gather from the architecture that's meant to be someplace like Switzerland or Bavaria or Austria, and we get and man and a boy in lederhosen, a Tyrolean hat, other men in business suits, and a woman in a space princess outfit. It's all over the map, in the figurative as well as literal sense.
Fashion and Jimmy Olsen are a vibrant subject. This one is a hodge podge. He himself wears some truly regrettable things. The smartest move Kirby made was putting him in a green jumpsuit for most of his run. Rip Off
I didn't get a lot of World's Finest comics, but I remember getting that one, and being impressed with how Batman got himself out of that coffin. He's a very flexible dude!
There's nothing the Batman can't do. He's the best there is at what he does...oh wait that's another grim guy. Rip Off
