Author Rainbow Rowell And Artist Cian Tormey Take On Lois Lane Back-Up Stories In Action Comics

Action Comics is proving to be action packed, not only is it filled with some excellent Superman stories from all-star writers, but now it will also be filled with a back up story by bestselling author Rainbow Rowell and artist Cian Tormey.

This story acts as Rowell’s debut for DC Comics, who will be delivering a story featuring the notorious Lois Lane alongside Cian Tormey. The story will run in the pages of Action Comics #1067-1069 and is paired with the lead story by Gail Simone and Eddy Barrows.

Here’s a look at the Action Comics #1067 variant cover by Pablo Villalobos:

Lois Lane Back-Up Stories

“As a former newspaper reporter, I’ve always had a soft spot for Daily Planet stories,” shared Rowell. “I love that Clark Kent is Superman and also a working journalist—and that it isn’t just dusty backstory. It’s a real facet of his character. I love that Clark met Lois in the newsroom, and that they still work there together. (This is so realistic, I swear.) I really like it when comic book romances last…There’s a lot of story to tell after two people say yes to each other. So—even though I was a little nervous about diving into the DC Universe—I couldn’t resist the chance to write a love story that is also a newsroom story, and still a superhero story.”

“The story that Rainbow and I are telling is about Lois finding her strength, with Clark supporting her as she becomes stronger in her convictions,” added Tormey. “He sees her finding her courage in a new role, her sense of responsibility for everyone—a gentle reminder for Clark of how far he has come, and how far all of us who are not blessed with superpowers can go when faced with adversity.”

Action Comics #1067 is set for release on Wednesday 10th July and will release monthly following that with the Lois Lane back-up stories within. It’s about time Lois Lane took the spotlight again!
