First Look! Lois Lane #9
“Who, what, why, you know, all of it. Just do that thing you do, ok?” –Lois Lane
In the wake of a second attempt on her life, Lois takes the unprecedented step of…telling Superman to back off! As the Kiss of Death circles for another try, Lois’s search for answers takes her back into the political spotlight, while Renee uses a Gotham connection to find answers to another set of questions entirely.
Lois Lane #9 by Greg Rucka, Mike Perkins and Gabe Eltaeb hits shelves Wednesday March 4th, 2020.
Lois Lane #8 Synopsis
DC Comics’ Lois Lane #8, written by Greg Rucka, with art by Mike Perkins, colors by Gabe Eltaeb and letters by Simon Bowland, gets right to the point this week. After the cliffhanger of the last issue, we get to see Lois and Renee fend for themselves. With the Man of Steel in the wings, we are constantly reminded by this creative team that Lois is no damsel in distress. She’s the Woman of Steel.
Our introduction to a supervillain in this issue is brief and ultimately anticlimactic, but the anticlimax of it all is what cements our love for Lois. Not only does she defend herself, but she also takes everything in stride. Nothing can rattle her. And despite Superman’s many offers for help, we get the impression he’s someone who is almost twiddling his thumbs. Stepping in at the last moment of each crisis to see Lois and Renee have dealt with it, only to be politely told by his wife to go away. She has it in the bag.
