JIMMY OLSEN

If you leave my blog with nothing else this week, I want you to remember...
JIMMY OLSEN IS A BADASS!!
WHOOOOSSSH!!

In case it's unclear, or if you haven't read any of the great old Jimmy stories from back in the day, he used to carry around a pen (the fountain pen gun) that shot out a burst of compressed air so powerful that it could knock a man unconscious with the push of a button.

See? Jimmy didn't call Superman for every little thing! He could take care of himself in a scrap. He just uses that signal watch when someone's life is in danger... or if he needs help teaching some frat boys a lesson or something.

Since I managed to stop myself from jumping into inks for long enough to make a scan before jumping on to the inks, here are the pencils

That's a keeper. Beautiful. Gotta a real Frank Robbins feels in the inks and dynamics. :)

Totally agree, Jimmy in the hands of the right writer is totally cool. Must say your little Swamp Thing film was inspirational to me, have been using brush pens for a while but it made me realise I need to be bolder and more confident with my lines.

I've gotta say I'm convinced: Jimmy Olsen IS a badass! I love that confidently stern look on his face. Great perspective as well. Keep reclaimin' 'em, Chris.
