    I'm actually really excited about this episode, BQM said in an interview that he wanted to do a "female justice league" episode, something they wanted to do in the show but never could because they couldn't lock all the actresses, and he wanted to do a very Lois-centered episode, so this sounds like he plans to combine both. Could be fun, and considering how Lois is being sidelined in other comics, giving her a episode where she can shine, should be awesome (besides, could help in sales when it goes to print, Lois has a lot of fans)

    I was so looking forward to this until the reveal of who Lois was teaming-up...Although I think Byran can make this better than I can imagine so let's see how it unfolds.

    That was expected sooner or later. Better to have her back and give her a proper send off then remain one of the disappointing aspects of Smallville that left sour tastes in people's mouths. For what is worth, Lana was the main love interest for the better part of the show's tenure, so she deserves a better ending than what she got.

    ...better...part...? Well, that depends on what you mean: I didn't have a problem with her with the first seasons, but afterwards I did hate how the character was treated, and wished she would go away. We all know the problems, so there is no need to repeat them all again, but I will say this: why did they overuse the romance between Lana and Clark WHEN WE AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNEW that it is Lois and Clark, was always going to be Lois and Clark, and no matter how many times Lana and Clark got together again, went to bed, broke up and repeat, it was never going to be any different?!

    As for her getting a proper send off; because this is Smallville Lana, and not...Lana, I'm either kinda biased or on the fence. Because of how dumb they took the character til the end, how she left in Requiem is just proof of how the show handled her: the fact that she was a poison to Clark, and his character development, they couldn't properly have her go, they had to literally make her poison to Clark by having her become kryptonite to keep her away from Clark, so the repeated pauses of his development wouldn't happen again. Ironic. Plus, if she and Clark see each other again in Valkyrie (even though its a sidestory), what does that say about those characters when you look at where they are versus where they were and why? It just makes the characters worse, by saying that when you put them together, they're just...stupid, unless they're apart, then they're fine and smarter in their actions; no other way to say that. The only hope we have is BQM: he hasn't written anything yet on this series thats bad, so the story he has might be better than what we're thinking, and he might be able to pull off a sendoff for Lana that might be pefect (unless it's not a sendoff at all).

    "Better" not as in if the show was "better", but as in longer. I should've typed longer to not get any confusion. And don't you think I defended Lana's relationship with Clark. I hated that for the most part too.

    Good issue, loved seeing Perry White. Lois was spot on in this issue, Lois wearing the signal watch which ends up getting destroyed lol.

    You covered it this was a surprising great episode. BQM really got a great handle on Lois. I can't wait for "Argo" though.

    This comic is really worth your money, I'm loving what BQM does with Lois, and I hope he makes me like Lana in this for a change. I really couldn't stand her on the show anymore, it became a torture.

    But I've been loving what I've read so far, girl power!

    So glad Lana's back ! And she's doing a great thing in Africa with the children. She was always bad-ass

    Well this is interesting Metallo returns and is tasked with dealing with "The Angel of the Plateau. He has a new heart that absorbs kryptonite courtesy of Toyman. (How convent) I knew it . And low and bellow lana's nano kryptonite is now infused into his system causing him to morph his body into any mechanical parts that can become weaponry.
