DC Comics has revealed a first look at Lois Lane, the new series by Greg Rucka and Mike Perkins spinning out of the Leviathan Rising one-shot in May, and which of course you heard about first here at Bleeding Cool. Lois Lane launches in July, but with the DC solicits neither officially out nor leaked by us yet, DC took to media partner The LA Times to share some details and art from the series, including the cover to Lois Lane #1.
In the Times' article, Rucka talks about the character, who will be investigating "conspiracies" in the new series:
Lois Lane is the best investigative reporter in the DC [Universe]. This is our truth, and this is what the book is about. Lois is often described as fearless, but that's a mistake, because it implies that nothing frightens her. There's plenty that frightens her; the difference is that it never stops her. She was like that before Superman entered her life, and so she remains.
And Perkins said:
I've always relished portraying that real world in the comics I illustrate as much as the super heroics," said Perkins.
[Lois] chooses to believe in her own abilities — her own prowess — to solve those problems that may seem unsurmountable. Lois is after the truth no matter what side of the political divide her person of interest stands on. That's some pretty potent, powerful attributes for a portrayal of integrity in the days of 'fake news.'
