This Reminds Me of That

Falling in Love #134
(July 1972)

Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #126
(September 1972)

Whenever I look at the cover of Falling in Love #134 (Nick Cardy pencils, I believe), I am instantly reminded of the cover of Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #126 illustrated by Bob Oksner. Not that red-headed Rick is in anyway as nefarious as Dingle the clown, but still. Reminiscent, wouldn't you agree? 


  1. Hi! First-time commenter here! :) I've been reading this blog for months, but haven't written before. Just want to tell you, Jacque, how entertaining and insightful "Sequential Crush" is.

    Oh, and there is some similarity in the above covers. But what I really want to know is, do you plan to feature the Lois Lane story someday?

    1. Hi David! Thank you so much for reading the blog! (and sorry it has taken me a little bit to respond!) I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by!

      I probably won't feature it here, because it was covered at another blog -- here's the link!

  2. I was never a big fan of Lois -- she seemed dull to me, and helped Superman be duller than he needed to be. I prefered Lana Lang, though I can't say why. Maybe it was the red hair, seemed to be edgier than Lois.

    I do like the pink boots though.


    1. I hear ya, Wes. To each their own I suppose!
