Jimmy Olsen?!??! It's easy to forget that Superman's Pal used to have his own long-running series filled with adventures, but now he's back and winning Eisner Awards thanks to Matt Fraction and Steve Lieber!

We read the first half of the 2019 maxi-series which is all about the murder of Jimmy Olsen's fake body double.

Then we continued The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck with Chapter 3!

Next Time: We finish up Jimmy Olsen with issues #7-12!

Shang-Chi! CM Punk! It's a double-topical episode! Shang-Chi is finally getting a movie and we admittedly knew absolutely nothing about him, so we went back to his beginnings in Special Marvel Edition #15 & #16 which was then renamed to Master of Kung Fu and the story continued with #17-19.

But we didn't stop there! We also read Master of Kung Fu #126 written by the Best in the World himself, CM Punk.

Then we continued our long-read of The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck with #2. So much content!!!

Next Time: 2021 Eisner Award Winner for "Best Limited Series" -  Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #1-6 by Matt Fraction & Steve Lieber
