I really think the Jimminy stories are better than just about anything else DC was doing during that period. Unlikely to see a collection but that's too bad for today's audiences. Gorgeous artwork with Post in full-on Walt Kelly mode. Well done stories that are fun for kids and adults alike on various levels.

I'd totally buy a collection of those stories!
