Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane is a comic book title starring Lois Lane that ran from 1958 to 1974. It produced 137 issues and two annuals.

The title originally centered on Lois Lane's romantic aspirations toward Superman. This often included plans to marry him, which were almost always foiled by some fantastic circumstance. Sometimes, these stories included instances in which Superman may have fathered a child. Lana Lang often appeared as a rival, as well as Lori Lemaris and others, and even Supergirl.

Later in the series' run, the title moved away from romance stories. In several issues, Lois took center stage in action-adventure plots inspired by Emma Peel from TV's The Avengers. Some stories saw Lois tackling social issues of the time, such as issue #106 in which she decided to live a day as an African-American woman.

For a stretch between 1970 and 1973, Rose & Thorn appeared in the book in her own back-up stories. The title was canceled in 1974, but continued as a co-feature in Superman Family. The character has not yet had her own on-going series again, but a mini-series was published in 1986 under the name Lois Lane.
