    Loved this issue myself. I think we should make a general Fraction Jimmy Olsen thread since unfortunately it doesn’t look like there’s enough discussion about each individual issue.

    The "My crazy board!" and "Vaping is for teen. Teens!" lines made me laugh harder than I have at anything in a very long time.

    I loved how Jimmy makes Lois worry about whether Superman has a super-sense that would let him smell her smoking cigarettes in Gotham, all the way from Metropolis. This series is a great treatment of the sort of goofiness that Jimmy stories should be about.

    I'm behind on this book (but I've got them all) and it kills me because it's literally made for me.

    I don't think he'd be impressed by it.

    Hands down one of the best books DC is putting out now.

    I'm loving this book. It's exactly what I expected when the creative team was announced, but more so.

    In the Donner films he tells her smoking is bad for your health iirc, and since her smoking and misspelling habits come from there I think it’s fair to say he disapproves.

    Ahh, forgot about that. Cool that it was picked up in this book then.

    As much as I enjoy that virtually everything from the Donner films have become canon in the comics now, I was a little put off by the use of Ms. Teschmacher here, as if her and Mercy Graves are interchangable. Because they really aren't. They're both women who are closely associated with Lex, but, aside from that, they should be completely different characters with very different personas and roles.

    Isn’t Mercy dead right now? Given how Silver Age inspired this book is I thought her usage her was acceptable given that Donner was drawing from that same time period.

    Really? When and how did Mercy die?
