A list of the most ridiculous covers of Superman's Girlfriend Lois Lane.
The 60s must have been a great time, a great, goofy, WTH time…

So what was with Green Arrow?

The "Superman's Pal Jimmy Olson" was worse. Ok, he's Super, but he's also a man so it's no wonder a hot chick can cause ol' Supe's all sort of trouble.

But he gave Jimmy Olson a signalling device for any time he really needed help. So every issue Jimmy got into a problem, used his "super dog whistle" and got his Super Pet to come and rescue him. It was embaressing.

And 1960's Batman…don't even go there.

I've got a copy of the one where she's an old woman.
Read a reprint of the one where she's spanking the super brat.
I think I've got the one with them in the glass coffins.
Read a reprint of the one where Lois and Lana have "permanent" super powers

Lana Lang is Lois Lane's Lex Luthor…say it five times real fast.


I don't have any of them…??????????
Green Arrow was on the sauce back then. There was a big series
about him getting sober.

Oh man. I have stacks and stacks of these old classic Superman family comics. Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen (Superman's Foole) were the epitome of wacky, madcap comics reading in them days, and still retain their wonderful outlandishness. Mort Weisinger editorial era titles, you can't beat 'em. Endless hours of enjoyment as a kid, and still, when I'm in the mood I'll pull them out on a lazy weekend and just marvel at how zany yet effective that world is.

They had absolutely brilliant covers back then. All the DC line, but especially the Superman titles and the Batman titles, with Flash and Green Lantern right behind. Bold, eye-catching, vivid coloring, dynamic designs. Even the logos are terrific. Today's comics are usually formulaic and bland and over-busy by comparison, IMHO.
