Love in the Time of Covid-19 SUPERMAN'S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE "Snoopiest Girl in History!"

As the second wave of the CoronaVirus pandemic rampages across America (and the globe)...

...we return to disease-related romance stories, with this one featuring fiction's most famous girlfriend!
Lois Lane is responsible for CoronaVirus???
That's the only conclusion you can reach from this never-reprinted tale from DC's Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #56 (1965)!
What did writer Edmond Hamilton and illustrator Kurt Schaffenberger know 55 years ago that we are only now discovering???
Note: While comics have long been pre-teen/teen male-oriented, romance comics (and Lois Lane fits into that category) have been pre-teen/teen/young adult female-oriented!
So why make the heroine in a female-oriented book such a manipulative bitch?
I don't know, but it was successful enough to keep the book running from 1958 to 1974, with the strip continuing for another few years in Superman Family, which combined Lois, Jimmy Olsen, Supergirl, and a new series Mr & Mrs Superman, which featured the married 1940s Clark and Lois of Earth-Two!
Next Week:
Another tale combining Disease and Desire!
