Love this.  The Superman comic was much more interesting when he and Lois were married (although the idea of Lois wearing an apron with little cherries on it is putting a bit of a strain on my microchip).  

A good classic style, reminiscent in some ways of the old Fleischer cartoons.

i guess i didn't notice that this was Lois in the earlier sketch, and not to be the negative Nancy here but... isn't it awfully sexist to place Lois in an apron in this domestic situation considering she's a working woman? especially one that's so high level in her job? maybe i'm not understanding the context of this illustration.

So what, it's sexist to draw women in aprons now? I'm a woman. I work, and sometimes I wear an apron. People are getting waaaay to PC about this kind of thing.

It's not sexist for anyone to wear an apron, male or female. It doesn't matter who you are, if you don't want to get mess on your clothes, you will wear an apron. In another comment in this thread you asked if it would be okay for Superman to wear an apron, and yes it would. Here is a clip from an actual Superman comic of him doing just that.

If I recall correctly this is based on an OLD Superman cover (golden age #36 which sold for...WOW! 10 cent! that's how long ago it was) so the setting with the apron kinda makes sense, Also Lois being a modern woman (even for that day) leaves a note saying SHE'LL fix the broken ice machine (Edit" oops I put "Icebox" rather than "Machine", people still call it that).

well if it is a "redux" of an old cover i can see why... but it would still be a detail that could be adjusted. i guess my point is; if superman switched roles in this image, would it be acceptable for him to wear the apron?

The picture has somewhat sexist overtones, but not necessarily for that reason. An apron doesn't really have any meaning other than what you ascribe to it. A lot of professions use them (not just cooking, but things like mechanics and stuff) because of how practical they are. There is no reason that Lois would not be wearing an apron if the issue calls for it, especially if she needed to fix something that was spurting smoke and she needed to do it quickly without changing out of her normal clothes.

The reason the picture has sexist overtones is because "hah! it's funny because it makes a man look incompetent at something and the smarter woman has to put him in his place and talk down to him!". It's especially stupid considering that Superman has microscopic and x-ray vision and so should be able to immediately see what the problem is with any broken item (so long as it was not made of lead) and since he learned how to conduct surgery with the skill and precision of one of the most experienced doctors in the world by reading every medical journal ever published in less than a second, the artist basically just turned a good character into an idiot just to make that joke. It makes Clark look bad, and it makes Lois look REALLY bad for being a jerk of a partner when he was trying to help.

Now that all sounds really critical. I'm not saying that it's a bad picture or that I don't like it. And it IS a sort of reproduction of a very old Superman cover (one that is MUCH worse, since it makes Superman look like an ass, rather than an idiot). So I don't blame the author. I like the artwork and I find the entire thing to be fun, as a whole. I'm just saying, that if you wanted to interpret something as sexist, that is the way to do it.

If he were cooking? Sure, he wouldn't want to get anything on his costume.

Your point is that if he weren't cooking, but wearing an apron it would be weird? Yes, that would be.
