Tiny Titans #39
Lois makes a short appearance in the latest issue of Tiny Titans. Here she is just popping by the Fortress of Solitude for an interview.
ComicBookResources had an interview with Kelly Sue DeConnick, who takes up Supergirl for a whole arc starting in June, and this is what she had said regarding Lois’ appearance on the series:
CBR News: Your first issue of “Supergirl” hits stores June 15. What can you tell us about your arc?
Kelly Sue DeConnick: Gifted kids have started disappearing from the area surrounding Stanhope College and one of them reappears in Metropolis, unable to tell them where she’s been or why. Lois Lane and Supergirl team up to investigate.
And there’s a classic villain who should look familiar to DCU readers. How’s that for a taunt? Don’t worry; I don’t actually keep it a secret for long.
With regards to the Kara/Lois team-up, what’s your take on their relationship?
In my take, Lois assumes a familiarity that’s unearned and the two have to figure their relationship out. It’s awkward, but there’s humor and mutual respect at the base, so they get there.
<strong>Is this awkwardness because Lois is comparing Kara to Superman?
I think it’s an unconscious thing rather than a deliberate slight, but yeah. She’s used to level of familiarity with Superman that’s not really fair to assume of Kara. And I think Kara is rightly wary of that.
Clark Kent’s a grown man who, all things considered, had a pretty conventional upbringing. Kara’s a teenaged girl who’s an orphan and a refugee. Yes, they’re from the same planet, but so am I and, you know, Jay-Z, but we don’t have all that much in common.
I’m oversimplifying, clearly — but if you can replace Supergirl with Superman in your story and it still works? You’ve failed.
Sounds like is going to be an interesting arc!
Look for Supergirl #65 written by Kelly Sue DeConnick with ChrisCross on interior art and Mahmud Asrar on Covers.
James Peaty is doing an outstanding job on Supergirl and he has Lois as a recurrent character so be sure to add it to your pull list!
Lois would definitely be a handy person to have around. It’s nice to see her and Kara being close.
