    Despite that, I did love this issue. Rucka is a great writer and he gets to shine here. I really enjoyed the dialogue in this. The issue has a great tone that's very appealing and true to the characters. The art is gorgeous. It's really fun to read. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Sep 4, 2019

    Rucka and Perkins do great work making Lois and Clark, the first couple in superhero comics, feel somehow both iconic and real. Lois Lane #3 is a stellar book and is highly recommended. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 4, 2019

    Mike Perkins art is perfect for the dark and serious nature of this story, but Perkins also allows for some light moments, especially at the end of the issue. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 4, 2019

    Lois Lane is the kind of book I'd envision a modern take on the Margot Kidder spin on the character would look like and it's been a fascinating and thrilling read. DC has something special with this one. Just let's try and avoid any more weird and creepy moments like that last page please. Lois is too intuitive and smart to miss the obvious cues leading up to it resulting in the kind of sight gag that doesn't connect I'd more associate with a Marvel comic. Read Full Review

    So overall, we don't get much plot progress on the detention centers, the Russian murders, or other subplots. But this was a great issue to showcase both Lois and Renee. I love issues like this, really fleshing out our characters. I can only hope sales continue to be good and we get an ongoing! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 4, 2019

    The pace of this book is sometimes surprisingly slow " I think this entire issue takes place in an hour " but it works, and the final page brings in a character I did not expect to see in this book. Rucka seems interested in exploring all areas of Lois' world, and I can't wait to see the rest of this maxiseries. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 7, 2019

    There are a lot of mysteries and coolness swirling in this comic, but sometimes it's just great to settle in and have an open, honest conversation with one of fiction's greatest romances. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Sep 5, 2019

    Superman will always ensure Lois' safety. Something like that runs the risk of diluting Lois being able to stand on her own two feet. Lois not only stands up but takes control of the situation because it all boils down to having a job to do. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Louie Hlad Sep 4, 2019

    The page art here really captures the grimy, gloomy mood of Chicago at night. You can almost feel the sticky air and smell the lake. Read Full Review

    There's still a lot else happening between these moments of marital consideration, one Question in particular, and that's what makes Lois Lane a consistent joy to read each month. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 4, 2019

    I had a great time this issue and it feels like it's because this issue wasn't anything like the previous two.  The dialog and interactions were fun and endearing, while the side plot did it's job in opening up the continuity, which I always appreciate.  Yeah, the art is still hit or miss with me and I still think that the coloring is way too dark, but overall, I really had a fun time with this issue of Lois Lane and hope to get more like this as the series continues.

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Sep 8, 2019

    Lois Lane #3 still feels like a continuation to the love letter to journalism started in the first two issues of the series, but doesn't match the same tone as the story begins to shift to a more personal facet of the titular character. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Sep 11, 2019

    Did much happen this issue? No, it did not. Turns out, though, that some gorgeous chemistry between Lois and Clark and one hell of an action sequence between two Questions were more than enough. Read Full Review
