And the adventure continues! I told you I'd comment on this as soon as it went up, Dave, and I'm no liar--! this was classic Charlton, lots of stuff going on but never losing sight of the endgame. I'm enjoying the introduction of Superwoman, something that I can't wait to see Supergirl react to ( ;D ), and the Evil Factory is a concept so ripe with story potential (and a shout out to Don Walsh with DC2 Comics Presents and it's mention of some of the brilliant threads in this issue and Action, great cohesion across the Superman titles). Lois Lane-- possessed?! Never a good thing, and it should be interesting seeing that play out? How long will it last? How long before Superman discovers the truth? Who knows?! I have to admit, I really enjoyed the opening scene. Lois Lane doing her thing, and being bad-ass during. The exchange over "Mokkari" was classic, and getting to that moment brilliant.
Roy, you're back, and I remember now why I love your work. Great stuff. The cover is one of your best, even if it's not entirely just yours, ha, but that Superman is brimming with power and you can tell that it's Flinchum. I can't wait to see #12!
Lots and lots of stories moving forward with this newest issue. Some quickly done up, exciting combat in the Galaxy Communication building, and seeing Edge's reactions, you can just feel the hatred seething from the words. The menace of the Evil Factory (I love how it can respond, like the Unnameable House of Lovecraft fame, so very creepy and interesting), and their plans to use Lois to destroy superman (ah if it were only that easy, Evil Factory ). And Superwoman. The Kristin Wells costume, so here's hoping for her to be the one appearing. I know I'm aiming to use her in Mightiest Mortals when I get myself back on track over at Earth-S, sot that's got me all intrigued by this mystery.
So very much going on, the title "AdventureS of Superman" is a very accurate one for this series. I'll be back in thirty days to see the big gala at STAR!
Take care Don

This was classic David and Roy and I couldn't help but grin from ear to ear when I saw that cover.
Then I got to read the issue and I never lost that initial smile This was actually a very Lois heavy story which I loved. David's Clark is always a stitch to read and the several threads that were layed out here promise for more action and suspense in the future which I can't wait to read.
That was a great issue (following on "Adventure Comics Annual #1"). David Charlton spun a complex yet engaging plot. His description of Lois and Clark were insightful and charming. The scene at the Daily Planet put a smile on my face. There are quite a few balls in the air in this issue and, while I am curious as to how the Evil Factory will play into the return of Zod hinted at in the previous issue, they were all juggled with finesse.
I can only assume this title is on hiatus, and the author should feel no particular urgency to return to this project if they have more pressing concerns. I still thought I would leave this review to let Mr. Charlton and all involved know a new reader has found this site and appreciates all of the hard work and passion found within.
Well, we’ve time-jumped away from the events of this issue now, so I don’t think we’ll necessarily see a direct continuation of the story, unless Super-writer supremo Eric wants to do something! But thanks for never letting us live this one down, David!!
Okay, so which issue do I read to find out what happened to Lois?
...I guess we won't actually learn the specific events, but she appears soon after (in-continuity) in the Action Comics Annual where Superman takes on the forces of Apokolips, and faces off against Darkseid for the first time since IXE: The Apokolips Imperatives.
