When war broke out in the world of FLASHPOINT, one of the resistance's best agents was left behind enemy lines. Now, it's up to reporter Lois Lane to pick up the pieces and lead European forces against the Amazons!

    Still, its a strong book, and definitely one of the better Flashpoint tie-ins. Read Full Review

    All in all, this is a fun issue. Nowhere near perfect, but enjoyable all the same. And after a book like this, it makes me wonder why DC hasnt given Lois her very own ongoing series to begin with. Maybe 52 #1s could turn into 53??? Read Full Review

    In the meantime, let's root for the series we do have to find its footing and make the case for an independent Lois Lane. Read Full Review

    Lois Lane and the Resistance has a more comic-booky feel to it because of the pacing, the lack of real depth overall and the artwork by Eddie Nunez. It's not bad artwork, but it doesn't fit the material well as it has more of a DC Universe animated video feel to it. And it also doesn't help that Lois wears the same outfit for something like six months worth of time in the story which doesn't say much for continuity and reality either as she lives on the island. I like the concept and what they want Lois to do and become, but it's not well executed here. Read Full Review

    But did it star Lois? No. And did it give me enough of the Resistance to make me actually care for those characters? Not really. And did it have a lot of death and carnage? Yep - Hawkgirl, Cheetah, Huntress, and Artemis all die violent deaths on screen. So I can't say that this satisfied my need for a great Lois story (although James Peaty and Kelly Sue DeConnick did some solid Lois stuff in the last year of Supergirl, so at least I have that).

    DnA clearly have a promising story in mind here, but poor pacing and completely inappropriate art drags the enjoyment down considerably. Read Full Review

    I was really hoping for another solid Flashpoint tie-in with Lois Lane and the Resistance #1. I did not get that. What I got was an emotionally devoid setup issue that really doesn't have me excited for next month's installment. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Jun 22, 2011

    One of my big complaints about Lois' character is the fact that she usually comes across as a weak character-- and I don't know why. For someone who spends a lot of time throwing herself out of the sidelines and into the fire, Lois should be portrayed as a far more interesting and compelling character than she is. After the awesome first issue of Flashpoint: Wonder Woman and the Furies, I was expecting a little bit more from this creative team. The writers had the chance to define Lois Lane in a whole new and exciting way, and they missed their chance. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 22, 2011

    When the main "Flashpoint" series told the readers that Lois Lane was undercover in New Themyscira, I think everyone had a fairly exciting story immediately spring to mind. What we're getting is a comic that spends more depth on a fashion show in Paris than what life in New Themyscira is like, let alone the danger and excitement of being a spy. I'm normally a big fan of Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, but this is a big disappointment. Read Full Review
