    Rucka and Perkins have created a living, breathing series that stands as one of comics' finest responses to the Trump administration. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Jul 7, 2020

    This is a gorgeous series, one of the best DC Comics has produced in the past ten years. And It's certainly left us wanting more Lois Lane. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Jul 17, 2020

    All secrets are exposed inLois Lane #12, the quietly explosive series finale. If you haven't checked out this series before now, it's time to treat yourself to an adult, subversive comic that isn't afraid to treat its readers like they have intelligence! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 8, 2020

    As we reach the end of this year-long series, it's safe to say it's a good series " it's just not the good series anyone was expecting. It's less a Lois Lane spotlight than a Greg Rucka spotlight, as he brings together the key characters from every major DC run he's done for the last twenty years. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 11, 2020

    I think this series went off the rails somewhere in the middle. And while this final issue is well-made, and has some entertaining moments, the train does not make it to the station. Read Full Review

    For those who stayed throughout the ride, this wraps everything up somewhat neatly but fails to make the case that Lois Lane deserves a stand-alone title. Read Full Review

    As a finale, this is fine. Everything comes together in a decently tied bow. There's great dialogue and banter; Rucka is a great writer. And the art is gorgeous. But the only thing the issue made me feel is relief that it's over. I don't have to talk about it anymore and that's not a good way to feel at the end of a series. Read Full Review

    Greg Rucka's name on a comic book usually means the reader will take a deep dive into the fabric of a story.Lois Lanestarted off with such a promise but ultimately revoked it, and unfortunately, the final chapter served as a prime example. Read Full Review

    There's certainly a compelling and relevant Lois Lane comic to be written, but this maxi-series wasn't it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 6, 2020

    For anyone looking to get any answers about pretty much anything that this book has brought up throughout its twelve issues better go look elsewhere because you won't find them here.  The art continues to be something I'm not a fan of, but it's still the highlight of this book where there just seems to have never been a complete idea for what this was supposed to be about and in the end, it's underwhelming all around.

    I know I haven't mentioned the art much in this review. As I said before, give Perkins a Question book or a martial artist book or even a war book. His gritty style would shine there. But I will gladly put this book in the rear view mirror. Read Full Review

    This was a shit end to a bad miniseries. Very frustrating to read. Art was annoying.

    Well, to my surprise, Rucka brought everything together. But how much better this series would have been if it didn't have to address things from the other Superman comics at the same time. We wasted three issues on that. And I still don't understand how Charlie is alive. But my biggest problem is that as fantastical as "we are remembering our alternate lives" is, the real fantasy here is that good journalism can save us all and that one great journalist can do that by herself. It doesn't work that way, sadly. It never has. I much prefer "press-paganga" to "copanganda" but it's still too much "hooray for our side" for my tastes.

    There's moments where you can see all the promise of a Rucka Lois Lane series shining out from under the debris — the great page with Lois & Renee debating whether to tell the truth, for instance — but ultimately Rucka put too many balls in the air, introducing a different main plot almost every issue, and there was never a way that the ending was going to be coherent. This series was a collection of solid ideas in desperate need of a stronger editorial hand to make Rucka to cut some and focus on, say, two or three at most.

    Also, I still don't like Mike Perkins's art.

    Hahahaha. Are you serious? Is this some sort of gag? Is this a Twilight Zone episode? Okay so like... I'm surprised the DC universe has never heard of the multiverse theory before. Not once. Not ever. What a load of shit. And you know what? Sure, Renee Montoya isn't dating anyone in this universe. Not a Batwoman or something like that. Now she's finally liberated to be with a character everyone else will forget about! Hooray! Show them frenching again! Representation is important to my sex appeal, damn it! If this is one of comics' "finest responses to the Trump administration," as one review said, we all need to hunker down and figure something else out. And quickly too, if the polls are hopefully true! This was a mess of a miniseries and more
