Rude on Kirby

"Rude on Kirby" from Legends of the DC Universe #14 (DC, 1999) by Mark Evanier, Steve Rude and Bill Reinhold
Though Legends of the Dark Knight had been a hit right out of the gate, it didn't seem to occur to DC to give other heroes similar books until quite late, and then only as an anthology that skipped around between mostly JLAers with the occasional oddity. I dare say #14's spotlight on Jimmy Olsen, specifically Jimmy Olsen as filtered through the Kirby lens, is one of the latter. Close friend of Kirby's Mark Evanier and OMG Steve Rude on art... It's awesome comics. The series as a whole was decent, if rather ordinary.
