Lois Lane #1
“Enemy of the People Part One”
Writer: Greg Rucka
Artist: Mike Perkins
Cover Art: Jenny Frison
Whoa, same week, two non-Marvel books. Who would’ve thunk it?
I picked up the Lois Lane #1 book from DC Comics simply because I really liked the variant cover that was on display. It is the one used on this review and it was an eye-catcher. Jenny Frison was the artist and a cover should help attract people to your book. This certainly worked on me.
I wound up enjoying the story as well. It was a very topical, political story involving Lois Lane investigating some topics that may just have some familiarity to them. Especially if you pay any attention to the news today. While I prefer my politics to stay out of the comics, this was well done and came at it with an angle that was unexpected.
I like dhow they kept Clark Kent’s role in her story at a minimum. The book was about Lois, although there was one surprising cameo in the story.
I did like this, but I am not sure I want to commit to 12 issues of the series. If you are a DC fan, this is a book that you cannot miss. For me, I have to consider what I am going to do with it.
