In Which I Continue to Obsess Over Whether or Not Silver Age Jimmy Olsen Stories "Actually Happened"

In a world of suffering and pain it's good to know that as of Action Comics #896, "The Gorilla Reporter" is now back in Superman continuity, where it belongs. So my mind is at rest about that, at least. As I predicted, the Jimmy Olsen feature has been great, and this latest issue was the best one yet, especially since, as seen in the two panels reproduced above, more of the old Jimmy Olsen stories have now been acknowledged, including the aforementioned classic wherein Jimmy spent a day as a gorilla! In fact, I'm going to pull the "internet expert" card here and declare all silver-age Jimmy Olsen stories -every bizarre transformation, every wacky hoax- to be officially in continuity until otherwise depicted or specifically stated in a DC publication.

This site really looks nice, I never know that there is also comics online, I thought I would only find it in magazine store.
