Lois Lane, Girl Reporter


A scattering of the LOIS LANE strip from the 40s, with a very early Jimmy and what Clark looks like when you never see him as Superman. I apologize for the quality; they are not my scans. I attempted to sharpen them as best I could. You'll notice that despite the "and Joe" credit, these are most likely(most of them) Wayne Boring.

So just who is Lois's invisible sibling that has a kid? Unless Lucy gave this one up for adoption before the Silver Age...

Isn't that his life's story?

Probably the wise thing to do for Jimmy

I had a lot of uncles and aunts growing up who weren't actually siblings of my parents. I don't know whether it was cultural or just a product of the time period, but 'Aunt' and 'Uncle' were often just defaults. I wonder if they were attempting a Nancy and Aunt Fritzi thing?

Same thing here. "Uncle" was pretty much a form of address for any middle-aged or older man when I grew up.

I just love any comic that uses the word "thoid." Extra points if the boy saying it is in a red turtleneck and newsboy cap and has a mutt.

What does thoid mean? I couldn't find anything in the dictionary and with Google.
sistermagpie: Might as well be in Chinese (Chinese)

It's really "third" but it's spelled "thoid" to indicate he's got a Brooklyn-esque accent of that time period.:-)

...Oh, come on.

It's difficult enough to learn English as a second language, what with its words that aren't written the way they sound, and now you go and misspell words on purpose?

You Americans are big bad meanies ;_;

Could've been worse. It could've been 't'oid'. I've seen it written that way often enough.

A Lois Lane comic that doesn't revolve around trying to trap Superman into a marriage 24/7?! Sign me up!

These are probably the extent of the Non Superman marriage related strips.

No, this was in the 40's. Idiot!Lois trying to trap supes into mairrage constantly didn't happen until the 50's hit.

Ooh, I love this.

So spirits are like bacteria? That 8th strip is disturbing in so many ways.
