I can't lie to you, my readers. I do not know a heck of a lot about the superhero comic universe, but I love love love Lois Lane. Was it growing up in the 90's and watching Lois and Clark? Was it the old Fleischer cartoons? All I know is that Lois is tough as nails and doesn't take shit from nobody, she's the best! I get the impression that she was not always handled in the best way by the Comic Lords, like people made her too much of a pest and love-dumb over Superman or some unappealing shit (yes I have seen those "Superman's Girlfriend" comics). Gimme a break! This woman has more important things to do, like win all the Pulitzers. All I'm sayin' is that if Lois isn't super rad all the time then I don't even want to hear about it.
Speaking of, the idea for this comic came about because of my friend Dean Trippe, who had a wonderful idea for a Young Lois series that DC considered for some time but ultimately, and unfortunately, didn't work out. But I was really blown away by how great it was, and wanted to share it with you. Fortunately then, for us, I can!

In other news, coming up at the end of April, I have another comics reading here in New York. Check it out!
And have some more Loises. They are fun to draw!
