    This is a great issue. Lois losing her father is heartbreaking; all of the emotion lands. I like this tragic sense of loss; Lois can't make amends until his eventual resurrection because it was a comic book death after all. But that makes the issue even more impressive; I know this isn't permanent and it still managed to resonate. The art is great as well. I don't know well this fits into the overall story but it's a wonderful stand alone piece. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 4, 2019

    Mike Perkins' art is the perfect complement to this story. This story is darker in its tone than the previous issue and Perkins matches that tone with the art. There are some amazingly well done emotional moments from the characters, especially Lois and the art reflects a somber, solemn type of issue. Very well done. Read Full Review

    Lois Lane stops mourn and it's a beautiful, heartfelt journey. Highly recommended even if you haven't been reading the rest of the miniseries. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Dec 5, 2019

    Lois Lane #6, despite the complete disconnect from the other issues, is an important and effective chapter. In fact, it's quite possibly the best issue so far because it's based entirely on something we can all relate to on some level. It's a mature look at death, and the messy nature of the grief that follows. Read Full Review

    This wasnt a flashy or eventful issue, but a necessary break point for one of DCs best low-key titles. Read Full Review

    A beautiful issue of "Lois Lane" shows us what happens when the strongest character in DC grieves. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Dec 6, 2019

    Lois Lane #6 is a terrific comic and were this title an ongoing, it would be a shining moment in the story. Still, since its the midpoint of a finite series, this issue feels like a detour from the main point of the comic, in a way that seems detrimental to the whole series. Read Full Review

    A touching, emotional issue ties everything off nicely in the end. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Dec 4, 2019

    However, from a marketing perspective, most of the people who read this series probably read Event Leviathan. Rucka and Perkins do a great job of adapting a significant element of a line-wide crossover while making this series feel like its own. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Dec 10, 2019

    But after this issue, I felt like there was always a familial love there, especially Sam for Lois. Perhaps I am transferring a bit as a father myself. Comics don't always have to be people punching each other. This issue was a winner. Read Full Review

    The scenes between Lois and her sister in the wake have some raw grief to them, but overall this is a break from the more-compelling main story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 4, 2019

    Maybe someone out there will be able to shed a tear for dear old Sam Lane, but as for me I didn't get any emotion out of this comic because nothing was really setup with the character beyond his small involvement in Event Leviathan and those one or two times that Lois and him fought about things that really went nowhere in any story.  So yeah, this is a bit of a disappointment in not only the story, but sadly in the art too.

    Lois Lane #6 is a mediocre, perfunctory funeral issue and one that has no reason to be part of the series to which it's attached. Read Full Review
