Dearly beloved, we have gathered here today in this catalog to remember our friend, Superman’s pal, the late Jimmy Olsen…’s assassination decoy!
Wait, somebody killed Jimmy’s decoy body? But whodunit? And, like, whydunit? And…wait, when did Jimmy get a decoy of himself? What we do know is it’s not safe for Jimmy in the City of Tomorrow anymore, and with Superman busy and all (you read that SUPERMAN #15 solicit yet?), Jimmy’s best bet is to solve his own murder within the safe borders of Gotham City! (Seriously, “safe”?)

Only Jimmy Olsen knows what Superman’s secret superpowers truly are-and now those mysteries will finally be shared with you! And only you. Don’t tell anyone. And Jimmy won’t have any of his pal’s super-abilities to help him get out of his latest jam as he hits the dark and dirty streets of Gotham City!

Superman’s Pal, Steve Lieber, Comics Artist

Artist Steve Lieber is one of the funniest artists in superhero comics today and his new series with Matt Fraction, Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen is wild and wonderful. Steve Lieber’s comics have been published by DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, Image, Valiant and many others. He’s known for his work on the Eisner-winning Whiteout, a graphic novel adapted by Warner Brothers as a feature film, and for Superior Foes of Spider-Man, an Eisner-nominated cult favorite. His comic The Fix was named Best New Comic of the Year by IGN.

Steve is also a founding member of Helioscope, the largest studio of comic book artists in North America. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

  • “I was trained in the state of the art art of the mid 50s”

Art by STEVE LIEBER, KANO, and PERE PÉREZ
Cover by PAOLO RIVERA (APR181869)
$49.99 | 304 pgs. | T+ | On Sale JUNE 13th

Join Multiple Harvey Award nominee James Asmus (Thief of Thieves), New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (IVAR, TIMEWALKER), Eisner Award-winning artist Steve Lieber (Superior Foes of Spider-Man), and explosive artist Kano (Daredevil) for the next deluxe hardcover of the superhero joyride Salon calls “one of the year’s funniest comics”!

Quantum and Woody are the world’s worst superhero team. Archer & Armstrong are a mismatched pair of conspiracy-busting adventurers. When a mysterious force collides with these ill-suited and irresponsible “heroes,” they’re in for a cross-country race through the darkest corners of American mythology…and all hell is bound to break loose. Can two busted pairs become four of a kind in time to defeat the Hobo King, save the day, and make it back home for happy hour? Let’s hope so…’cause these guys make a really, really bad team. (And you don’t even want to know about the Goat.)

Collecting THE DELINQUENTS #1–4, QUANTUM AND WOODY MUST DIE! #1–4, VALIANT-SIZED QUANTUM AND WOODY #1, and UNITY #25 along with 20+ pages of rarely seen art and extras, plus THE DELINQUENTS Board Game!
