No other female co-star in the DC Comics Universe has earned their keep more than Lois Lane. The driven newspaper reporter followed her most elusive story until she led herself right to the truth and into the arms of the Man of Steel himself. Of course, this is all pre-New 52. I have to believe that sooner or later, she'll find her way back into the embrace of Clark Kent and his alter ego. The one-shot Superman: Lois Lane gives us a little background on the headstrong newswriter's dysfunctional family life.

Lois Lane's father grows increasingly more influential and powerful in the government. At the same time, Lois's sister, Lucy, is getting entangled in a drug scene that is much more dangerous than she could possibly imagine. As if all that wasn't enough to deal with, Lois finds herself coming to odds with the computer oppressor Colu and Braniac.

Marguerite Bennett pens this emotionally charged story entitled "Nostalgia." She does a great job intertwining the past and present to put together a tale which tugs on the reader's heartstrings. There's plenty of action to help push the book along, so as not to get weighed down by too much drama.

There sure are a lot of artists for a single 38-page one-shot. Superman: Lois Lane is penciled by four different sets of hands, including Emanuela Lupacchino, Meghan Hetrick, Ig Guara, and Diogenes Neves. I really don't know why this is the case. However, it doesn't really hurt or detract from the entertaining storyline. Each artist brings their individual talents to the drawing board to translate Bennett's words into pictures.

I'm not sure what the point is behind the one-shot Superman: Lois Lane. If DC kept up the strong storywriting and art they established here, they could easily keep a monthly series operating which focuses on the wily Daily Planet reporter. It would give females another great reason to dig into the world of comic books.

The Superman: Lois Lane One-Shot is available now in print and Kindle editions.
