Investigating Lois Lane

Investigating Lois Lane

March 1, 2016 | 288 pages

A nuanced look at the character of Lois Lane and the comic book industry viewed through the constantly evolving Superman mythos From her earliest days, Lois Lane yearned to make the front page of the Daily Planet but was held back by her damsel-in-distress role. When she finally became an ace reporter, asinine lessons and her tumultuous romance with Superman dominated her storylines for decades and relegated her journalism to the background. In a universe full of superheroes, Lane has fought for truth and justice for more than 75 years on page and screen without a cape or tights. From her creation by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster in 1938 and her forthcoming appearance in Batman vs Superman in 2016 to helming her own comic book for more than two decades and appearing in animated serials, live-action TV shows, and full-length movies, Lois Lane has been a paragon of journalistic integrity and the paramour of the world's strongest superhero. But her history is one of constant tension. Through it all, Lois remains a fearless and ambitious character, and today she is a beloved icon and an inspiration to many.
