Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen get solo titles in July

Greg Rucka and Mike Perkins tell a “hard boiled” Lois story, while Matt Fraction and Steve Lieber tackle Superman’s best pal.

DC Comics will publish two maxi-series this summer starring well-known Superman supporting characters — Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen.

As confirmed by the LA Times and DC’s July solicitations, Greg Rucka and Mike Perkins are teaming up on a “hardboiled” Lois Lane. “Lois Lane is the best investigative reporter in the DC [Universe],” Rucka told the Times. “This is our truth, and this is what the book is about.”

Jimmy Olsen, meanwhile, gets a “more fun and light and optimistic” series from Matt Fraction and Steve Lieber.

While Rucka has worked extensively at DC Comics over the years on such titles as Wonder Woman, Batwoman, Checkmate and other titles, this marks the first major work Fraction has done for the publisher.

Check out the first issue covers and solicitation information below.
