‘Lois Lane #7’ (review)

Written by Greg Rucka

Published by DC Comics

 

In the last issue, Greg Rucka took time off from the investigative main plot and focused on the death of General Sam Lane, which occurred in the pages of Event Leviathan.

This issue opens with The Question thwarting a photographer who attempted to take pictures of a romantic rooftop rendezvous between Superman and Lois Lane.

Their “affair” has dominated headlines, however, Clark Kent revealed his identity to the world last month in Superman #18.

It was a little jarring to see the story move forward as if the cat’s not already out of the bag.

Some of the more subtle elements throughout the series augments the climax here. Lois’ hotel room is clean for a change and the housekeeping attendant she’s built a rapport with is absent.

Greg Rucka did a excellent job of making the reader think the built up paranoia was unwarranted, only for it to be highly justified. Mike Perkins always presents gritty depictions in a stylized manner that fits this series like a glove. Action and fight scenes are bombastic and practically leap off the page.

Greg Rucka deserves a lot of credit for producing a highly entertaining installment, despite ignoring the reveal of Superman’s identity. The use of minor story elements to maximum effect proves that in this series, everything counts, no matter how small.

Rating: A-
