Superman 42: How does Lois find out about Clark?

Jason Book and I discuss issue #42 of Superman, which is part 2 of the "Before Truth" story arc that explains how Lois came to reveal Superman's secret identity, leading to the "Truth" stories in Action Comics, Batman Superman, and Superman Wonder Woman.

Overall, we felt the issue was adequate but not stellar. The art is always a liability with John Romita Jr. on the book, so that puts pressure on the writing to be superb. In this case, Yang was good but not great. But the villain is creative and explores some relevant themes, and the arc still has potential going into the final two issues. We also discuss the big moment between Lois and Clark.
