2019 MARKET UPDATE: LOIS IS STILL KINDA HOT (KINDA)
It's always been difficult to decide how to feel about Lois Lane. Would you go there? After Superman? Pretty tough call.
Let's stick to financials to make this decision. Prices of many grades are up. It's fallen this year, but then so have almost all DC Comic superheroes.
I picked a grade that never seems to come to market. Not helpful. But other grades seem to be gaining some traction.
Still one to hold. No need to bail out yet.
2018 MARKET UPDATE: LOIS VS CATWOMAN CLASSIC COVER!
Catwoman comics are hot property at the moment, and this amazing cat fight cover is her first Silver Age appearance.
There aren't many sales, but those there are have been good ones.
2017 MARKET UPDATE:
A Silver Age key issue in CGC 9.6 for $2,200? Any other series and you'd swear they forgot a zero, but this is Lois Lane, one of the chilliest of cold series (only propped up in the sadness table by Jimmy Olsen).
A classic cover featuring a literal 'cat-fight' between Lois and Catwoman makes this a hot issue, and Cat fans will want to own one for sure.
It's Catwoman's first Silver Age appearance. See our Catwoman comic books price guide for more info.
One of the mainstays of the Golden Age Batman villains, Catwoman's appearance in this unpopular DC Comics title is something of a surprise.
As a buyer of comic books, it gives me an excuse to check the Lois Lane lists that come into the office -- there are so few worth pursuing...
It has a special appeal due to its (literally) cat fight on the cover between Lois and Catwoman. Add to this an appearance from The Penguin and you have a great recipe for an investible comic book.
The white front cover shows a lot of dirt, so higher grade copies are hard to come by (but don't let your standards slip any lower than 9.0). Even so, the sad truth is that the Lois Lane name brings down its value. Prices are rising, so now is a good time to get one.
