Lois Lane to star in new YA novel

Posted on


Although she hasn’t been treated particularly well in cinemas lately, there’s plenty to like about Lois Lane that isn’t related to Superman. A hard-nosed investigative reporter with an army brat upbringing and a tenacious attitude, it’s kind of remarkable that, outside of a few comic books, Lois Lane hasn’t had more time in the spotlight. But next year, that will change: Lois Lane is making the transition from comics to prose next year in Lois Lane: Fallout, a new young adult novel.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the novel—which will be written by Gwenda Bond and published by Switch Press in association with DC Entertainment—will imagine Lois as a teenager newly arrived in Metropolis, where trouble is afoot in her new high school and a friend with the screen name “SmallvilleGuy” might be “more than a friend.”

So it’s basically Lois Lane in a Veronica Mars-esque plot, which sounds like all kinds of awesome.
