This is mostly Nick Spencer's fault. Granted, Jimmy Olsen has been up to his fair share of wacky shenanigans over the years, but it was Nick Spencer and RB Silva's brilliant Jimmy Olsen series of backups in Action Comics (which eventually became the 80 page one-shot simply titled Jimmy Olsen) that reminded just how much fun this character can truly be.
Jimmy may be Superman's #1 fan, but he has a proven track record of quality stories behind him (as shown by the aforementioned one-shot and the ridiculously long-running Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen). Therefore, I am eager and excited to see what kind of zany pages we can come up with for the Daily Planet's young photojournalist.
That being said, don't feel beholden to compose a lighthearted piece should you have a perfect poignant page. Just because I intend to be irreverent with my script, doesn't mean you have to do the same. Part of James' charm is certainly his ability to support any type of story, silly or serious, so let's do this.
Is Jimmy going to be an astronaut? A wizard? A talking gorilla? A regular ol' boring photographer? The options are endless, and it's all up to you!
So let's forget about Superman. It's Jimmy's week to shine. Let's make sure it's as bright as it can possibly be.
