The only thing standing between Lois and execution is the Question, but can Renee Montoya stop the Kiss before she fulfills her contract?
“The scariest aspect to the Kiss of Death is she’s only got eyes for Lois,” says DC Group Editor Jamie Rich. “Most deadly assassins fixate on one target, sure, but this is extreme. Not to mention, Lois is trying get by without her superpowered husband’s help. We all know Lois can take care of herself, but this one might even be too dangerous for her.”
Lois Lane #8 is by writer Greg Rucka and artist Mike Perkins, debuting new DC character the Kiss of Death, hits shelves Wednesday February 5th, 2020.
