Lois Lane will star next year in her own young-adult prose novel written by Gwenda Bond, author of The Woken Gods and the upcoming Girl on a Wire.
Teased Monday by Bond, and immediately deduced by DC Women Kicking Ass and others, Fallout follows a high school-age Lois new to Metropolis, where she’s determined to figure out how a group called the Warheads is using an immersive video game to mess with the mind of another girl.
“Having a really hard time articulating more than ‘YES THIS IS HAPPENING, NOW YOU ALL KNOW’ at the moment,” Bond tweeted on Monday. “But I love Lois & I love you guys. Because Lois is … LOIS. And I want to do the character justice. I hope that I did and that you guys think so too. (And also FUN.)” She followed that this morning with photographic evidence of her excitement.
Published by Switch Press, Capstone’s imprint for young-adult readers, the 304-page Fallout is listed on Amazon.com for January release. However, Bond indicates its will be published in May.
