Lois Lane Watch for the Week of February 1st

Comics/Print Media

Action Comics #6

Written by GRANT MORRISON ; Backup story written by SHOLLY FISCH; Art by ANDY KUBERT and JESSE DELPERDANG; Backup story art by CHRISCROSS; Cover by ANDY KUBERT; Variant cover by RAGS MORALES; 1:200 B&W Variant cover by ANDY KUBERT

The breakneck pace of Grant Morrison’s run on ACTION COMICS continues as the Superman of the present day must team up with suspiciously different versions of the Legion of Super-Heroes to save the jeans-wearing Superman of five years ago! Whose hand is that on the cover? Why, the leader of the Anti-Superman Army, of course! 

Plus, a backup by Sholly Fisch and ChrisCross that spins directly out of the lead story!
Superman: The Reign of Doomsday
Written by PAUL CORNELL, DAMON LINDELOF, PAUL DINI, GEOFF JOHNS, DAVID GOYER, RICHARD DONNER, DEREK HOFFMAN and BRIAN STELFREEZE; Art by PETE WOODS, JESUS MERINO, KENNETH ROCAFORT, RAGS MORALES, DAN JURGENS, ARDIAN SYAF, GARY FRANK, JAMAL IGLE, RYAN SOOK, R.B. SAF, BRIAN STELFREEZE and MATT CAMP Cover by KENNETH ROCAFORT

Doomsday has returned in these tales from ACTION COMICS #900-904! The monster that once Superman’s life in a battle that destroyed half of Metropolis is back for another round with the Man of Steel. Writer Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, KNIGHT AND SQUIRE) pens a tale that not only puts Superman in a fight for his life – but in a fight for the life of Superboy, Supergirl and all members of the Superman family.

Other Items of Note

  • Bleeding Cool is reporting that there is a Smallville continuation novel written by none other than former show writer and Batgirl scribe Bryan Q. Miller in the works. Given that Lois is one of Bryan’s favorite ladies to write, if this rumor proves true, the book is bound to have plenty of Lois! (If I was a betting woman, I’d lay money on BQM’s other project being a comic series that spins out of the spin-off novel.)

Project N.O.W.H.E.R.E. has put a lot of effort into creating their Superboy, and they intend to make sure he performs to their standards. And what better opportunity for him to demonstrate his raw power than to throw him into an alien prison riot? Good luck, Superboy… you’re going to need it!

*Given her appearance in Superboy #1, I’m hoping to see more of her in the title, but I don’t know for sure yet.

Lois Quote of the Day

Clark Kent:
He's a sick man, Lois. And I know better than most that it's hard enough maintaining ONE identity some days. I felt confident I could protect the civilians...until he threw me with that EMP move. Maybe I was too cocky. It could have ended badly. But I wanted to give him a CHANCE, at least.
Lois Lane:
You care about the right things, Clark. I love that.
Lois Lane:
Guess we should get back. You're never going to be Batman, are you?
Clark Kent:
No. I'll never be Batman.

Lois Quote of the Day

Lois Lane:
There are three million people living in Metropolis. They are background players in your life, keeping your "set" alive with noise and bodies and smells and traffic and yells. If one day, one of the regulars simply wasn't there, you probably wouldn't notice. Who would? There are three million people living in Metropolis, and YOU are a background player in THEIR lives. If one day, you simply weren't there...Who could notice?
As the emergency personnel and squad cars descended on Pier Three that bitter afternoon, the same question bounced from radio to radio. "What is Superman doing here?" Why had the Man of Steel taken time to recover the body of a fifty-year-old Costa Rican Newspaper Man who had never been anywhere or done anything important?
Because not a single one of us is background noise. Because when one of us disappears...someone should notice. Every person is star. A life. A heart. A voice. And when a voice is silenced in the darkness...another must rise to see that justice is done.
Valentin Reyes, survived by his daughter, Maribella, was buried last Saturday at a small service, attended by three. His murderer has been indicted and awaits trial. No bail.
~Action Comics #792
