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.

Finally! Lois Lane Arrives As DC Archive! Jan. 5 2012
By Beach Read Boy - Published on Amazon.com
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.

The DC Archives series is back! Jan. 23 2012
By Jim Davis - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Lois Lane Archive Makes For Good Reading ! Aug. 25 2013
By Morgan Painter - Published on Amazon.com
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.

charming tales from the 1950's. Feb. 10 2015
By Michael Dobey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Dc is BACK! for a few years I was very unhappy with them for the terrible achive editions that they threw out at us. Made up of scanned comic books. those were the ones released from 2008 -? or so. But this is a return to GREATNESS. They have restored these comics and they look outstanding!! Thank you for doing this DC. Now can you go back and do a proper 'sandman with simon and Kirby" and a proper 'starman voume 2" ? This one is fine read for many reasons. The book has ten 'ois land stories from the 1950's and they are very charming on the whole. Lois is a good example of a woman who wants a career and her man as well. One gets the feeling that even if she married superman , she'd still want her career. Although the writers of the day would not have seen it that way!!. Women got married and then gave up their careers or were supposed to! according the culture of the day. But by this time at least young girls could read about lois's adventures and enjoy a strong woman in comics. Yes she does want to marry superman, and many stories are about her trying to snag him , but others feature her doing a great job in her field. These are very charming stories on the whole and worth reading . It was a simpler time back then but it was also a time of real inequality for most women. Still it was also a good time in America in many regards as well. So take a time trip to the past with this well done archive!. And men can obviously enjoy these stories as well.
