Lois Lane #3

Superman’s Girl Friend, Lois Lane #3, July-August 1958

This is the earliest issue of Lois Lane I currently have in my collection. The beautiful cover, which promises the delight of seeing Lois cope as adoptive mother to baby Superman, is by Curt Swan and Stan Kaye. Just look at the wonderfully expressive yawn on the face of li’l Kal-El. Swan really was a brilliant — and woefully underappreciated — artist.
