Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #120

Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #120 (On Sale: April 8, 1969) has a strange cover by Curt Swan and Neal Adams. What is strange is that from the waist up the Superman character has been inked or redrawn and inked by Kurt Schaffenberger. What could Adams have done that they needed to wipe out half of the Superman figure?

We begin with "Jimmy Olsen's Super-Punch" by Leo Dorfman and Pete Costanza. Next is "The Climate King" by E. Nelson Bridwell and Pete Constanza. I don't think I even own this strange-looking book.

Edited by Mort Weisinger.

DC editorial could be very picky about Superman's depiction. There are other cases of heads being redrawn on Adams' bodies. It happened to Kirby a few years later as well.

I don't think that's Kurt's Schaffenberger's work.
