Manic Monday Double Secret Probation--What If Match.Com Existed in 1888 Whitechapel?

The dream wedding of Lois Lane:


I know, some of you are thinking--the Gentleman Ghost? Nice guess, but--duh--no monocle.

So who is it? You wouldn't believe me if I just told you, so I guess I'd better show you.

A mysterious ghost has been hanging around, protecting Lois from criminals, and haunting her dreams (which is where the cover scene comes from). And...

Well, that's troubling...especially since:

And that night:

And, because lightning hitting a haunted dagger has always been a way to travel through time...

And where does she end up?

Say what?!?

And then Kal-El shows up...

And our completely convincing final page of ad hoc explanations:

So, the ghost of Jack The Ripper fell in love with Lois, possessed her, brought her back in time so his undeceased self could kill her, but then he couldn't kill her because she wasn't a prostitute.

Hey, kids, COMICS!!

From Lois Lane #108 (1971)
