Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane Books Ending In 2020
In a release posted directly on their website, the fine folks at DC have unveiled the end of some fan favorites:
“Launched in July 2019 to the delight of fans worldwide, DC’s Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane have been uncovering corners of the DC universe that had yet to be explored. Introducing new characters like the Kiss of Death and welcoming back fan favorites like Dex-Starr, these two comics have given the people closest to Clark Kent (and, by default, Superman) an incredible spotlight.
Now, we’re approaching their triumphant final issues. Coming this June, with the Daily Planet on the ropes, Jimmy learns something about it that’ll change everything forever. And, at the end of multiple investigations, Lois finds herself with the power to change—or destroy—the lives of everyone involved.

Lois Lane #12, written by Greg Rucka with art and cover by Mike Perkins and a variant cover by Amanda Conner hits shelves June 3, 2020.
Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #12, written by Matt Fraction with art and cover by Steve Lieber and a variant cover by Ben Oliver, hits spinner racks June 17, 2020.”
Here’s a closer look at each series’ final cover:
It’s always nice when supporting casts get their own series, allowing us fans a chance to explore the outskirts of their own characters’ universe. Both Jimmy and Lois‘s comic lives have revolved around “Supes” so much, that it was fun following them to live their own adventures.
But alas, all good things must come to an end, as the famous mantra goes.
Thankfully, we got to enjoy a year’s worth of fun and unique stories told within the lives of Superman’s most loyal supporting characters.
