What the… what?
I have great faith with writer Marguerite Bennett, especially since her great achievement with Batman: Joker’s Daughter #1. While this is not a bad issue, the story is too bizarre for me to get into.
The story has Lois trying to help her sister rescue her girlfriend, who’s been kidnapped by a group of people somehow involved with a drug that turn people in monsters. It’s a strange story for me to follow, and it even separates from a ground of realism from the DC Universe. Instead, it feels like something from a page of Wildstrom. I guess it’s a good thing, because the whole idea of New 52 is to integrate ideas from Wildstrom into DC Universe. However, I just can’t get myself into it.
It’s not to say Bennett is a bad writer though. She captures Lois Land as a character perfectly and makes her modern tale one that’s worth remember. It’s fun to flashback to Lois and her sister’s childhood and we get an idea how these two are as kids. I especially love their bizarre dialogue that’s a mix between English, Japanese and German. It really empathizes Lois and how she will turn out to be in the future.
Anyway, the ending doesn’t really make sense to me at all. I thought Lois already mentioned she found the cat earlier, so what would she believe the monster to be the cat? Anyway, Lois needs to sharpen up her investigation skill as a reporter.
