I like to think that I know quite a bit about comics, especially those published by DC and Marvel in the 70s and 80s. Every now and then, however, I learn about that I still have a lot to learn about comics. I was flipping through the bins at a LCS not too long ago when I noticed an interesting couple of books filed under Misc 'L'. Did you know that there was a two-part Lois Lane miniseries published in 1986? I sure didn't. I don't know Mindy Newell's writing very well (I think she did some Legion), but I'll jump at the chance to read anything with Gray Morrow artwork. He'd be the perfect fit for a newspaper based, urban story. I don't know where this one fits in the grand scheme of Crisis and/or Man of Steel, but I don't really care. The shop was asking a bit too much for these (all of their back issues are horribly over priced), but you can bet that I will be scouring bargains bins for this series until it's mine!
