Action Comics #1008

Action Comics #1008 is most notable for returning Lois Lane to The Daily Planet newsroom for the first time in months. This includes some fun interactions between Lois and various of the newsroom (and one very important altercation that doesn't take place). We also some fun dialogue between Lois and Superman on the way in to work.

The larger arc ties into the attack Jimmy Olsen witnessed on the Kobra cult last issue, as more attacks are made. The Department of Extranormal Operations is leveled (only Adam Strange's presence allows for some survivors) and attacks are made on both Amanda Waller and General Lane (who may or may not be dead at this point).

Whatever Leviathan is, and apparently its big enough to take out several secret organizations without much effort or leaving much of a trace, it looks like the threat is very real. The first question Superman will have to decide is if he can trust Waller (who apparently has known his secret identity for some time)? Worth a look.
