The Grooviest Covers of All Time: Lois Just Wants to Get Married

That's all Ol' Groove can say about these covers, baby. During the early Groovy Age, before she got heavily into Women's Lib (and let's face it, even after), Superman's Girlfriend just wanted to be somebody's wife. Lois didn't seem to care whose wife, just so long as she got a ring! I mean...the Devil? Sheesh! At least we had guys like Neal Adams, Curt Swan, Dick Giordano, and Bob Oksner to draw these kooky-kool kovers!

All of this to say Happy Valentine's Day for tomorrow!


  1. "...Lois doesn't know he's Batman! She's marrying him for himself!" Well...That multi-billionaire thing surely helps. :-)
    It's great how they did not even considered once the possibility of NOT putting Superman in prominent position on the cover of Lois or Jimmy's book.

  2. Well, the books are marketed as "Superman's...", so it's only natural for him to appear prominently on the covers! Lois' marriage obsession would fit in well in 2015, where DC Comics' fans are still all about marrying off single ladies like Lois Lane and Batwoman! An unmarried woman is considered "less than" even now, apparently!
