Despite getting to reveal one of the biggest secrets in comics, Lois Lane isn’t getting that much exposure in DC Comics lately—it’s been ages since she had her own title. So it’s great news that the acclaimed prose novel, Lois Lane: Fallout by Gwenda Bond, is getting a sequel.
Lois Lane: Fallout got a starred review at Kirkus, and I’ve heard tons of fans raving about how well Bond creates a teenage version of Metropolis’ best reporter. [Full disclosure: Bond gave me feedback on one of my novels in progress, a few years ago.] So it’s great that Lois is getting to have more adventures, and more character development. From the press release:
“DC Comics’ iconic character Lois Lane will be back for more in Lois Lane: Double Down, the second book in a new series from Switch Press, the Young Adult imprint of Capstone. Following the success of the first book in the series, Lois Lane: Fallout, author Gwenda Bond returns with a new story of the adventures of a teenage Lois Lane, as she begins to discover her passion for journalism and become the character loved by generations of fans.
“‘Lois Lane is an icon, one of the most well-known and enduring figures in American pop culture—and for good reason,’ says Bond. ‘She’s a hero all of us can relate to. It’s been a tremendous honor and a great pleasure to get to write about her in an all-new way, as a modern teenager, and I’m thrilled to be continuing her story in Double Down.’”
The new novel comes out on May 1, 2016.
