Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lois has had a tumultuous path to where she is today, and her volume takes some care to represent, but not overemphasize, the many years of super-pining she regularly engaged in during the 1950s and 60s. What we mostly get is the highlights of a tough-as-nails journalist who could stand toe-to-toe with the Man of Steel and not back down or fall listlessly into his arms."  -- Matthew Santori-Griffith 

"Nearly two dozen Lois Lane stories are reprinted here, and it's a fascinating retrospective of the character, as well as of comic books themselves. The silly stories of the 1950s and '60s are hard to take seriously in any way now, but they have some nostalgic pleasures. The more interesting stories come later, in the '90s and '00s, especially a classic issue of Wonder Woman in which Lois interviews the Amazing Amazon and freely discusses the jealousy she feels. It's in instances like these that we start to see what Superman has seen in Lois Lane all along." -- John Hogan

"What if a god was reared with a solid moral background supplied by good-hearted (and liberal) Midwestern parents? Well then ... if this super-being is Kal-El of Krypton and the woman he loves is Lois Lane -- a smart, ambitious, and just plain nosey gal by nature -- he'd have to really keep on the super-tips of his super-toes. Sure the old secret identity roundelay got boring after a few short decades ... but whenever the god's creators stepped outside this ol' reliable  conceit, comic readers discovered that Lois Lane is a real character with real story potential."  -- Andy Mansell

From the Back Cover

A staple of the Superman universe from the very beginning, even without a costume Lois Lane has become one of the most recognizable characters in comics.  Fearless, tenacious and unshakably principled, Lois is far more than just Superman's girlfriend.  Even without super-strength or invulnerable skin, she is always in the thick of the action, searching for a front-page story and leading her own fight for truth and justice.

LOIS LANE: A CELEBRATION OF 75 YEARS included classic stories from Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, as wel as unforgettable work by Kurt Schaffenberger, Otto Binder, Cary Bates, Curt Swan, John Byrne, Jeph Loeb, Ed McGuinness, Amanda Conner, Phil Jimenez, Greg Rucka, Grant Morrison, Frank Quitely and more.

This special anniversary collection compiles more than twenty of the gutsy Daily Planet reporter's greatest stories from her seventy-five year history, from her no-nonsense 1930s debut and zany Silver Age schemes to her modern adventures as a dauntless journalist.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a superb collectable and a must read for any one who likes Superman. This book contains a great deal of superman comics featuring the one and only Lois Lane. One story really made me laugh when Lois becomes fat '' which it literally says in the comic'' and Superman says when he is flying and carrying a unrecognized Lois ''Pardon my saying so, but you're quite a load!
(puff!) The girl I most often fly with is slender.... Lois Lane!'' This book is great and I really like the unknown Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane comics that would be really old and pricy to buy. Instead of the last and a little long story of Lois Lane from ''All Star Superman'' I wish they put in more older comics with Lois in them. If you buy this book, you also have to buy ''Superman a celebration of 75 years''. You won't be disappointed!

Format: Hardcover
A great collection of stories detailing Lois' own history within the superman franchise. The colors are crisp, lines are clear, and is a great collection for dedicated fans of Lois Lane. A definite proof of her worthiness to headline her own series someday. Hope that this is a book of many down the line for a heroine like Lois.

Great collection of Lois Lane stories throughout her comics' career. This book follows the history of Lois chronologically from the beginning to today. There's a bunch of great stories, it cool to see the art progress through the years, and the book itself is beautiful.

Format: Hardcover
They’re no longer a supercouple, but Superman and Lois Lane had a good run for much of Superman’s 75 years in existence. That’s why Lois is getting her own hardcover retrospective in the collection LOIS LANE: A CELEBRATION OF 75 YEARS.

This book begins with Lois’s first appearance, which is also the same as Superman’s: Action Comics #1. From the very beginning, Lois has been a shrew to Clark Kent…the very first words the character ever utters in print are these, in response to Clark’s request for a date: “I suppose I’ll give you a break…for a change.” Thanks, Lois, that’s awfully sweet of you. (While Clark takes Lois’s jabs on the chin, he gets to be a cad to her in return when he’s in the role of Superman; on one of their very first encounters, she asks when she’ll see him again and he replies, “Perhaps tomorrow…perhaps never!” It’s no wonder these two couldn’t make things work.)

Nearly two dozen Lois Lane stories are reprinted here, and it’s a fascinating retrospective of the character, as well as of comic books themselves. The silly stories of the 1950s and ’60s are hard to take seriously in any way now, but they have some nostalgic pleasures. The more interesting stories come later, in the ’90s and ’00s, especially a classic issue of Wonder Woman in which Lois interviews the Amazing Amazon and freely discusses the jealousy she feels. It’s in instances like these that we start to see what Superman has seen in Lois Lane all along.
