Editor Wil Moss on the JIMMY OLSEN co-feature

Superman's pal takes center stage when a new JIMMY OLSEN co-feature starts in September's ACTION COMICS #893! Written by rising star Nick Spencer (of such buzzed-about Image mini-series as EXISTENCE 2.0, FORGETLESS and the upcoming MORNING GLORIES) and drawn by R.B. Silva (who's drawing July's SECRET SIX #23), this co-feature promises to be a whole lotta fun. We'll let Nick tell you a little about his take on Jimmy:
"Jimmy works best as a character when you play up his fun side, when you embrace the insanity that is his life. He's a ridiculous guy living in a ridiculous world, and he's determined to make the most of it. He doesn't need to be 'matured' or made more 'serious.' And he's also not, as he sometimes seems to be portrayed, an 'Aw shucks!' naiveté -- Jimmy is clever, street-smart, and at times downright suave. And in this ACTION COMICS co-feature, he'll get a real chance to show off what can he do as he deals with threats that have a decidedly post-modern, pop culture inspired-bent."
So be there in September for the start of an exciting new story unlike any other in the DCU - bowties optional!
Thanks Wil (and Nick)! Stay tuned to The Source for a first-look at Silva’s take on Jimmy Olsen in the coming weeks.
