by Jarrod Jones. This summer, the most vital character in the Superman mythos will finally have her day in the sun.
Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane is breaking news (and possibly a few noses) in the pages of her own 12-issue maxiseries, Lois Lane, aimed for a July 3 release. Following the current gob-smacking events of DC’s summer event series, Event Leviathan, Lois Lane will follow the exploits of DC’s premiere investigative journalist as she journeys outside of Metropolis hot on the trail of a global conspiracy that could topple the very structures of society itself—not to mention, put an end to her famous husband’s storied superheroic career.
DC has officially released two pages from Lois Lane #1, available for your scrutiny below. Eleven panels, that’s all we get, but it’s more than sufficient to convey the sharply cynical tone of the series as presented by writer Greg Rucka and artist Mike Perkins, who establish a sense of political turmoil that is not dissimilar from our own, um, harrowing realities: Rotten behavior from our elected officials, dubiously implemented detainment camps, a non-stop deluge of environmental catastrophes—this looks like a job for… a hard-assed, take-no-s#&% reporter named Lois Lane!

From DC: ‘Lois Lane’, a new 12-issue maxiseries by writer Greg Rucka and artist Mike Perkins, launches on July 3rd 2019.
While Lois Lane has been featured prominently in both ‘Superman: Leviathan Rising’ #1 and ‘Event Leviathan #1 in the last few weeks and is the backbone of DC’s ongoing ‘Action Comics’ and ‘Superman’ comics, Lois Lane’s story in 2019 has only just begun.
‘Lois Lane’ depicts hardboiled, tough-as-nails, investigative journalism. Lois Lane has never worried about speaking truth to power and is the best investigative reporter in the DCU; a detective who has contact information for almost everyone in the DC universe. Researching a widening international conspiracy, Lois has no reservations about putting herself in the crosshairs of the story she’s after.
In her new series, Lois Lane is on the road and out of Metropolis—and carrying a secret. After a press briefing at the White House, Lois embarks on a harrowing journey to uncover a plot that reaches the highest levels of international power brokers and world leaders. Critically acclaimed and best-selling author Greg Rucka and master storyteller Mike Perkins, along with colorist Paul Mounts and letterer Simon Bowland, team up for a tale of conspiracy, intrigue and murder that pushes even Lois to her limits.
‘Lois Lane’ #1, “Enemy of the People,” hits shelves July 3rd 2019.
