    Newsarama - Justin Partridge May 14, 2020

    With a strong sense of history and a quiet sense of poetry, Lois Lane #10 might be the comic to beat this week. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens May 12, 2020

    LOIS LANE #10 manages to make wild changes in the plot, while never sacrificing its tone. This creative team introduces giant developments, yet they keep every moment grounded. LOIS LANE isn't becoming a must-read, it's been one for ages now. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Keith Reid-Cleveland May 15, 2020

    This issue isn't all exposition though. It also has its fair share of gun-pointing and plot twists and one hell of a cliffhanger. I'm not surprised by this at all, because Rucka's known for doing great work and Perkins' pen game is clearly strong. But if the rest of this series has been anywhere close to this good it's going to be something I casually drop in conversations for quite a while. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 13, 2020

    Mike Perkins' dark, film noir style is perfect for this issue. It captures the tone of the story and the darkness of the moments with these characters. In addition, Perkins does some great work with the splash pages showcasing the multiverse itself. There are some beautiful details throughout. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 12, 2020

    This is an issue involving magic, which helps explain how Superman can be in the book but also not help out. That's always a bonus for longtime comic readers to explain why a hero can't help. The machinations of this issue work quite well and it will delight those who enjoy a nice complex caper. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene May 13, 2020

    Kiss of Death strikes in the third act as Lois' trap doesn't go according to plan. Rucka made it all come together in a suspenseful manner, setting up next month's penultimate chapter in grand fashion. Read Full Review

    Even if there doesn't appear to be much reason to revisit this series as it nears its conclusion, individual issues like this offer plenty of entertaining distractions and ideas on their own. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 12, 2020

    Despite the big reveal theres still plenty of questions about Lois investigation and how everything comes together. Rucka and Perkins have set up an exciting cliffhanger and now its a matter of if theyre able to stick the landing. Read Full Review

    It's an odd title, but one that serves as a strong spotlight for some of Rucka's best characters. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj May 15, 2020

    It isn't really a Lois book as she is only in about half the book. The plots are again no where to be found, Instead we have a very heavy exposition on quantum theory. And even if the art in those Multiverse pages is very nice they feel unnecessary or, at the very least, too long. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer May 14, 2020

    For the first time, the creative team of Lois Lane comes up short, larding this issue with unnecessary exposition for a character we barely know. It isn't a complete disaster by any means, but is oddly out of character for such robust creators. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills May 16, 2020

    This normally grounded, character-driven comic suddenly takes a turn for the big, multiversal conspiracy and I don't like it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine May 19, 2020

    This issue is fine. The art is incredible; I love Perkins' style and Troy compliments it well. There are some fun ideas and Rucka is a talented writer. He knows how to make these characters compelling. But the story lost me a while ago and this issue doesn't do anything to bring me back in. I think it's ballooned too big and I don't think it's nearly as interesting as the early issues. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 12, 2020

    Lois Lane continues to be drawn out and unfocused as we move along to make our twelve-issue quota, but hopefully, with the new story elements added in this issue, it will feel like something worthwhile by the end, but for how out of nowhere and undefined some of the ideas come off here, I'm not expecting much as we go forward.  The art is a bit better in my mind this issue, but it's still not something that I'm a fan of and at the end of the day I just wish this was a series that I could really get behind, but each issue feels like a struggle to find the story.

    DC Stuff May 12, 2020

    This book is all over the place and this issue is no exception. I figured we'd get a more focused book as it is a limited series, but after 10 issues, it seems like Greg Rucka hasn't figured out what his main focus should be. That's not good with only 2 more to go! Mike Perkins tries some interesting things with the art, but I don't think it does the story any favors overall.

    So remember when this was a down to earth comic about freedom of the press and immigrants? I don't, and I feel like even the usually reliable Greg Rucka doesn't either. And while I like the multiversal stuff and how it is a back door explanation of how Renee and Vic and Sister Clarice are in the current DCU, it doesn't belong here, even if it turns out that Lois is completely the Lois from the pre-Flashpoint DCU. Also, while I appreciate what Mike Perkins tries to do in illustrating the multiverse - love the cameo by the 1978 movie version of Kal-El's ship - he is not the best artist for such things. He is more suited to the noir and that is not noir.

    And the ending is really muddled. What is going on?

    Prelude:
    Lois Lane has become a rather weird book then what it originally set out to be. Nevertheless, let's see how this issue goes.

    The Good:
    Nothing.

    The Bad:
    Why is a Lois Lane comic going into multiversal stuff?

    Conclusion:
    There's nothing really good that stands out, nor much bad. I'm just left confused why a LOIS LANE TITLE is dealing with THE MULTIVERSE. This book has jumped off it's original premise so much it's not funny.

    Why are we being introduced to this concept now? Where is the fucking focus here? Ugh.
