Someone wanting to kill Lois Lane is nothing new for the famed reporter, but is it because of something she knows or something she's about to uncover? Plus, this issue ties to the events of December's Superman #18 and the gigantic status quo shift for both Lois and her husband, Superman, when the Man of Steel decides to reveal his identity to the world.

    The Daily Fandom - Kyle Scher Jan 3, 2020

    Lois Lane #7 ends on a bang, brings back some characters Rucka is known for and has some great small human moments that empower the rest of the story. Its nice to be back in the major events despite how good Lois Lane #6 is. And who doesnt love Renee casually flirting with a maid that turns out to be a supervillain? Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Edward Wendt Jan 1, 2020

    This is a mainstream DC comic but it has the feel of something that someone might read from Image. Because of that, really, every fan of comics should be reading this series, which looks like it will only get better. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Jan 5, 2020

    The only big flaw in the issue is that its over too soon. Something about the issue feels slight, and an early sequence in the UK feels tacked on out of nowhere. These are small quibbles, though, and overall, Lois Lane #7 is a strong entry in a strong series. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Jan 2, 2020

    Greg Rucka deserves a lot of credit for producing a highly entertaining installment, despite ignoring the reveal of Superman's identity. The use of minor story elements to maximum effect proves that in this series, everything counts, no matter how small. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 1, 2020

    This title has always been a slow-burn mystery, but I don't think Rucka gets nearly enough credit for the acerbic humor in his dialogue. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Jan 12, 2020

    Lois Lane stands head and shoulders above most other mainstream comic books, and issue seven is no exception. If you're looking for a mature, intelligent, and suspenseful alternative to tights-and-flights, this is absolutely a book for you! Read Full Review

    Lois Lane delivers satisfying DC Universe adventures in journalism and politics week after week. It's a series worthy of the titular character. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 1, 2020

    Mike Perkins tone and style continue to be perfectly matched for the gritty detective story Rucka is telling with this series. The last few pages are fantastic and filled with the tension I was hoping to experience throughout the entire issue. Read Full Review

    GWW - Percy Waelchl Jan 1, 2020

    In spite of the unnecessary plot device, Rucka and the creative team craft an enjoyable and well-paced chapter in the ongoing detective story. Readers will see this as a filler chapter in an otherwise strong run. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jan 7, 2020

    I like this series. But this particular issue fell a little flat for me. It is still one of the better books on the shelves these days. But I expect so much more!! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 1, 2020

    This issue of Lois Lane disappoints again in my mind as it takes the majority of the issue to remind people what this series is all about after all the interruptions it keeps having.  The problem with that too is, I find myself not digging the plot of the story and being reminded of it here did nothing for me until the cliffhanger and as for the art........ I'm still not a fan of that either. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Jan 1, 2020

    When the seeming non sequitur at the start of the issue is the most engaging element of the entire entry, perhaps it's time to pack things in and wrap it all up, because it's not even entirely clear what Lois Lane is about past its halfway point. Read Full Review
