In Adventures of Superman Annual 3, Lois Lane Dies. The plot is, a possible future of Superman is being examined, which involves Superman marrying Lois Lane, his girlfriend at the time, and fathering a child. Lois, however, cannot mother his child and Superman’s baby kills Lois Lane when the baby kicks while in her womb.
Superman flies away from earth in tears and encounters some hot redhead babe named Maxima. Maxima, unlike Lois, is capable of having Superman’s child and is desperate to win him over. Take a great story and add an unnecessary page of Maxima bathing, and you end up with a comic worth reading.
The advertisements, which I love to look at in older comic books, are interesting as well. There is a full page ad for Home Alone on VHS. “Only $24.98” it says. That would be kind of pricy now, I can’t imagine how outrageous that price would have been in 1991 when this third Annual of Adventures of Superman was published. But just the idea that Superman’s baby kicked a hole in Lois Lane’s womb is funny enough for you to have to read this comic.
