Following a tryout in Showcase, DC decided to give Lois Lane her own ongoing series. The comic series focus on Lois’ solo adventures, and sometimes with stories centered on Lois’ romantic interest in Supermanand her attempts to maneuver him into marriage, only to fail due to a comic plot twist. In the early 1960s, Lana Lang made regular guest appearances, generally as Lois’ romantic rival. Artist Kurt Schaffenberger drew most of the stories for the first 81 issues of the series, missing only issue #29. Schaffenberger’s rendition of Lois Lane became cited by many as the “definitive” version of the character.
