Lois Lane #12 review

Over the last few months I’ve moaned a bit about the freewheeling nature of this maxi-series; plotlines that seemed fundamental to the story vanished for months at a time. Well, they’re back: the reporter killed by Russians? Out in the open. The corruption in Washington? Exposed. The hotel cleaner threatened with deportation? Welcome after all. […]

Lois Lane #10 review

Now things get interesting. I enjoyed the first couple of issues of this maxi-series a lot, but as the months passed my grasp of what the story actually was became less firm.

Lois Lane #4 review

The final page of this instalment of the Lois Lane maxi-series tells us that next issue is to be called ‘No answers, only questions’. Actually, that would apply to every issue so far, including this one. We start where we left off last time, with a near-naked, very embarrassed Lois in the shower, where she […]
