As a child I was a big consumer of comic books; now my 11 year old daughter is also. She loves Archie but I wanted to widen out to some others. Comics nowadays are mostly ruined by violence and adult content so I began picking up some vintage comics from the 60s and 70s. She loves Lois Lane and these stories are lots of fun with excellent art work and plenty of humour. There's some suspense and imagination and always a happy ending. Overall this collection is highly recommended for little girls.

A Consumer Note for the Financially Challenged June 1 2013
By Daneel Olivaw - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Look, I don't have a single bad word to say about this book or the DC Archives volumes in general. I grew up on these stories and loved them. If I could afford these expensive reprints of those long-gone comics, I would snap them up. If YOU can afford them, by all means you should purchase them.

But for financially challenged fans like myself, there is a less expensive alternative. These same Lois Lane stories are reprinted in black and white and on pulp paper in the "Showcase Superman Family" books. Yes, having them in color is neat, but they are so well drawn that one can still get great pleasure from the monochrome versions. Volume 2 of Showcase Superman Family reprints Showcase #10 (the first Lois tryout issue) and Superman's Girlfriend Lois Lane #1-7. (It also reprints Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #23-34.) Volume 3 of this Showcase book series reprints Lois Lane #8-16 (and Jimmy Olsen #35-44).

Again, I raise this alternative solely on financial grounds. You can find these Showcase volumes (there are four so far, the first being all Jimmy Olsen) elsewhere on Amazon and get a LOT more Lois (and Jimmy) stories for your money. I just want you to know about this option in case money is tight in your household.

The DC Archives series is back! Jan. 23 2012
By Jim Davis - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is a pleasure to report that the DC Archives series is now off of life support and is well on its way to a full recovery. Over the last few years there have been only a handful of releases. This, combined with releases in other formats over the same period, led to the conclusion that the series was on its way out.

Thankfully, reports of its demise were exaggerated. The archives seem to be back on a monthly release schedule with not only long stalled series getting new volumes but new series starts as well. Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane Volume 1 is one of the latter.

These 10 very early silver age (late 1950s) issues are the epitome of comic book fun. They're from a time before political correctness, before a platoon of lawyers had to review every release. These stories are hilarious, wacky fun featuring Superman's favorite stalker, er, girl friend, Lois Lane. Is Lois a good role model for today's girls? Of course not. Are the stories sexist, degrading to women and who knows how many other constituencies? You bet! But they are also plotted (indeed, over plotted) up to their figurative armpits. This was back when you got three complete stories in one issue instead of one complete story in three issues as is the norm today (if you're lucky).

Tom Peyer contributes an hilarious forward pointing out some of the absurd elements that we would see over and over again as the series moved through the 1960s.

The art is first rate especially that of long time Lois artist Kurt Schaffenberger and the classic Curt Swan covers. Reproduction is first rate, well up to previous standards although a thinner stock of glassy paper is used.

Highly recommended.

Finally! Lois Lane Arrives As DC Archive! Jan. 5 2012
By Beach Read Boy - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
DC Archives finally releases this first collection from the Lois Lane series. Hopefully, more are to come as the comic ran 100+ issues. High quality volume on fine paper and beautifully reproduced. A must-have for Superman fans and comic book heroine enthusiasts.

Lois Lane Archive Makes For Good Reading ! Aug. 25 2013
By Morgan Painter - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What a great way to read the old classic comics. It's obviously a lot cheaper than buying the originals. And you don't have to worry about the book falling apart in your hands.

Title says it all. This is a beautiful release but I feel it could have been a bit thicker for the high price.
