    In 1938, one of comics most iconic and enduring characters made their debut in the pages of  ‘Action Comics’ #1.  Except unlike a certain milquetoast Big Blue Boyscout, this character was tough as nails, snappy, ambitious, cut-throat and impeccably put together.  I’m speaking of course, of Lois Lane, possibly the most famous supporting character in […]
