If you know a little about Superman, you know Lois Lane is a reporter at the Daily Planet in Metropolis, working alongside the Man of Steel’s secret identity, Clark Kent.
If you’re a regular consumer of Superman, you probably know that Lois Lane eventually wins multiple Pulitzer prizes for her journalism and goes on to marry Clark Kent. In the current Superman comic book series, we’re even introduced to their teenage son, Jon Kent, A.K.A. Superboy.
Lois Lane has had a very busy and interesting life.
Fast forward to July 3, 2019, when issue 1 of 12 in the new Lois Lane series hit the shelves of comic book stores nationwide. I had my local shop add this title to my pull list (the series I regularly subscribe to) because I thought it sounded interesting. I figured I would check out issue 1 and decide whether or not I wanted to continue with it.
Suffice it to say the writing by Greg Rucka is awesome, even Lois Lane worthy, and the art is equally as great. The story is set in a modern time period, but the art makes it look old school, in a good way.
Lois Lane is in Chicago and staying long term at the Drake Hotel where she’s working on a story. This story is a deep mystery type of thing, reminiscent of Watergate. The story even references Deep Throat from the Watergate story.
Lois, as always, is a stubborn woman who doesn’t back down from anything, not even the White House Press Secretary. In true badass reporter fashion, Lois hits the press secretary with a question she’s not prepared to answer, nor wants to answer.
Lois keeps pushing and pushing until she eventually gets tossed from the press briefing and has her press credential revoked. After the ejection from the White House grounds her fellow members of the press corps take up Lois’ cause and keep up with the line of questioning.
The first book ends with Lois walking away from the White House and we read the closing line, “More on this story as it develops.”
