    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Jun 9, 2020

    Lois Lane #11 is one of the most potent titles to come out of DC Comics. It establishes tone and imbues characters with a three-dimensionality that is sorely missing in their portrayals on other titles. As this creative team steps into the home stretch, we see the plot begin to wind down. But even so, much of the mystery remains intact for the final chapter. Read Full Review

    Like all things Rucka, this is a strong series, but there's just one problem"I'm not sure it's a Lois Lane series. It's gone so far from its original plot that it's hard to recognize, and much of the plot centers around Renee's long and twisted history as the question. I think it'll read a lot better in collections without the gaps between issues. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Jun 11, 2020

    The hero of this book, though, is Mike Perkins, the artist. He chose dark hues that work well with a cult ceremony/ brawl. He didn't use the darkness as an excuse to use less detail and put impressive energy and skill into the lighter parts of the pages. I particularly noticed the detail and light he put in the scenes outside the fight that were close ups of Lois Lane's face. I'll be checking out the back issues and see if the rest of the series is as impressive. Read Full Review

    The bigger picture that this comic has stumbled into clashes with the small picture character stuff that actually makes this comic worth reading. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jun 10, 2020

    Greg Rucka writes a pretty wild script. This comic was a bit all over the place until this issue, but Rucka brings it all together here. The art is pretty spiffy as well. Mike Perkins is one of the best artists in the field. All in all, it is a good penultimate issue to a decent series. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Jun 15, 2020

    Lois Lane #11 proves the creative team not only still has tricks up their sleeves, but have planned this series out to the Nth degree. Smart, engaging, uncompromising, and unwilling to pander to those unwilling to pay attention, this series is one anybody looking for intelligent comics should have on their pull sheet.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 10, 2020

    Mike Perkins' art is fantastic. It continues to capture the classic noir aesthetic and every page feels personal and character driven based on the use of close ups throughout. Read Full Review

    It all feels very convoluted right now. Maybe Rucka can nail the landing. Hes a strong enough writer to pull everything together, but this issue doesnt instill a ton of confidence. Read Full Review

    This is an okay issue. The art is gorgeous. This series has been worth it for that alone. But the story left me behind a while ago. This relationship between Elicia and Renee is interesting but there isn't a lot that can be done since the next issue is the last one. It's not bad; I just don't find Lois Lane #11 engaging.

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jun 12, 2020

    All the actual Lois plots, as I said above, have been sort of forgotten. Should I be judging this on my expectations? The expectations of the title? The actual story? All of it? Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 9, 2020

    I'm sad to say that this has been a mess of a series that has just gotten weirder as it's been going and that doesn't change here with our new Multiverse angle to this maxi.  Yeah, the plot turn was odd last issue, but when you add magic into it, it just makes everything seem more unfocused and that you can essentially wave a wand at something and make it go away, while just saying transference over and over again.  I'm not a fan of the art in this book and I can only hope that the final issue puts some care into making this series really come together.

    This series began by proclaiming it would connect to current events and detail the heroism of journalists, but it's difficult to imagine a more self-indulgent bit of superhero fantasy than Lois Lane. Read Full Review

    This continues to be bad. So much happened and most of it feels senseless.

    Okay so just to recap... Renee is shot by Death Skeleton and Lois Lane is very upset, but she just knows there's a romance between Renee and Death Skeleton, like I know there's a romance between my cats and the squirrels. You just tell by the way one kills the other. But Renee and Death Skeleton's kink (which I will not shame) is wearing the face of a cancer riddled, soon to be undead C-list Objectivist icon. So Lois tells Renee to gas up, and even though Renee doesn't have a mask on her face, it still works. And then Death Skeleton stabs herself in the hand as opposed to somewhere sexier, and gives Renee a kiss of death. And somehow, some part of Death Skeleton imprinted onto Renee and anti-life somehow brought about life, like it's a 1959 more
