    1. This is a fun look at Lois Lane throughout the ages, from 1938 to 2006. Some of the stories are very, very weird. And both Superman and Lois come off as jerks in different issues. Superman goes through this stage of deliberately fucking with Lois. For instance, he makes her 100 pounds heavier in one issue. Of course not telling her a bling-blang thing. Then, in another issue, he fucks with her by tricking her into believing she has Kryptonite vision and is hurting him every time she looks at him [...]

    2. Lots and lots of Lois Lane in this collection. And it's even a nice bunch of issues. They're put into different categories, most by the year or years, although I liked the section at the end about the Imaginary Stories. Elsworlds, especially when it comes to Lois, sometimes it seems like she gets much better in those stories than she does in the regular ones (although sometimes she doesn't, and one of the issues in this one was sorta like that).I had read a lot of the stories already, but some o [...]

    3. A great collection showcasing the changes of both the artistry and character attributes given to Lois Lane over the past three quarters of a century. Definitely helps the reader and many comic book enthusiasts understand how the character has developed into what they publish today. Wish there were more notes or critiques throughout the book instead of only an introduction to each new major change in the character development.

    4. It's hard to give this a good review. Do I review it as the quality of its stories? Well, I probably shouldn't, given that some of them are more here for historical value. So I should probably review it as a sampling of Lois Lane. But then that starts to fall apart too.The book is divided into 5 sections that essentially come down to Golden Age, Silver Age, Post-Crisis, Modern Age, and Imaginary Stories. The Golden Age stories are the ones that surprised me the most. Lois is straight-up awesome [...]

    5. Lois Lane has had many incarnations through the many adventures of Superman, what is often lost on the modern reader is how she was originally portrayed. In the early stories of Superman, she was an energetic, fearless reporter with a strong personality that backed down from no one. Everyone from the powerful villains to her male co-workers were subject to her ire as she pursued the story, even when there was great danger.In the middle years, she was femaled out a bit, becoming less of a strong [...]

    6. Let me start by saying that this book is a great idea. I felt as though there was an overall deeper meaning in the study of Lois Lane, but it left a lot to be desired.Honestly I think there was a strong undercurrent of women's studies at heart and an examination of the social bias toward/against women during the last one hundred years laid out in comic book form.Unfortunately there was a lacking of serious consideration for putting it to paper and ultimately it just turns out to be a big collect [...]

    7. I thought this was a great way to celebrate Lois Lane's 75 years. I really enjoyed this book and I recommend it to anyone that is a fan of Lois Lane as this is a nice collection of stories beginning with her first appearance. Thank you and DC Comics for allowing me to get this for free as a First Reads winner and to have the opportunity to read this.

    8. This collection reminded me of something I complain about 24/7: Lois Lane needs a solo run and "Superman's Girlfriend" was an offensive goddamn tragedy. Five stars because it's Lois and I prize her above all others!

    9. I didn't know this book was composed of extract of Lois moments. At first I was a little concerned but at the end it was nice for someone like me, who has still a long way to go to read Superman comic books!I've loved Loïs forever and I'll never stop

    10. Wonderful collection of Lois Lane comics, showing her evolution as a character from the beginning to right now. I received the book for free through First Reads.

    11. As with the Superman volume in this series, this book is a nice look at Lois Lane's history from the Golden Age to more or less the present day. Again, I'm annoyed that the introductory material is lacking and that some of these stories don't have all the parts, meaning that I can't get proper context for them. Still, this is a pretty good collection. The Golden Age material starts with the first ever Superman story, as right from the start Lois is willing to risk a lot to get the scoop right al [...]

    12. If you're looking for a collection of straightforwardly fun superhero stories, Lois Lane: A Celebration of 75 Years is middling - there's good stuff, there's painful stuff, there's stuff where you don't get the whole story because it's cut down to the Lois-centric part. But if you're looking for a history of how a character develops over three-quarters of a century, or an exploration of gender roles since 1938 through the lens of pop culture, then this is a rewarding read.The book is split into [...]

    13. I for the most part enjoyed this, but I felt they could have picked better stories in some cases. The '50s choices were, in my opinion, absurd and unenjoyable. An important part of the history of Superman? Maybe. Worth looking into how Lois's part and Superman's opinion of her changed so drastically from 30s to the 50s? Definitely. But not stories worthy of a celebration of Lois Lane. A couple other choices were also questionable, but the best were by far the original Superman and Lois Lane stor [...]

    14. Other than the issues of Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane which were excruciatingly painful to read--I am morbidly curious if there were even more offensive examples they could have included--this was OK. Unsurprisingly, the ones I enjoyed the most were more recent.

    15. A great look at one of the best female comic book characters!! It was super interesting getting to see how much she has changed over the years!
