'Lois Lane is the Most Dangerous Woman in the DC Universe' – Brian Bendis

On the Word Balloon podcast with John Siuntres, Brian Bendis has been talking about the Leviathan Special coming from DC Comics in June.

Listen to "Comic Books Bendis Tapes Superman Leviathan Wonder Comics and Jinxworld Talk" on Spreaker.

This one:

(W) Brian Michael Bendis, Matt Fraction, Greg Rucka, Marc Andreyko (A) Steve Lieber, Mike Perkins (A/CA) Yanick Paquette
An all-star roster of writers and artists highlight the new threat of Leviathan, but also tees up new ongoing series for Jimmy Olsen by writer Matt Fraction and artist Steve Lieber, and Lois Lane by writer Greg Rucka and artist Mike Perkins, coming in June! As Leviathan enacts a plan to take down Superman, it's up to Lois, Jimmy and the heroes of the DC Universe to rescue the Man of Steel. In Shops: May 29, 2019 SRP: $9.99

The one with a Jimmy Olsen story by Matt Fraction and Steve Leiber, launching a new series.

And Lois Lane by Greg Rucka and Mike Perkins, launching a new series.

But also we learn that it will include a new Supergirl story by Marc Andreyko and Kevin Maguire, continuing her series. And all getting new stories within the special.

Connecting all the threads together but introducing Greg and Matt to the Superbooks, and Bendis compares Fraction's Jimmy Olsen comic to his work on Hawkeye for Marvel, and see it for those who miss Hawkeye, 'hilarious, irreverent, only he could make this comic'.

And Bendis says that 'our position is that Lois Lane is the most dangerous woman in the DC Universe'…'forget her husband'. And Event Leviathan gathers the greatest detectives in DC history and Lois Lane is in the middle of them…

This will include Green Arrow, Steve Trevor, Plastic Man, The Question and Batman…

Look for everything to get announced properly at WonderCon. I hear DC Comics, after having a bleak ECCC and C2E2 have been saving it all up for WonderCon.
