Lois Lane Is Your New YA Fiction Hero

S04.E01.CRUSADE.720P.mkv_000023690For her entire 76-year existence, Lois Lane has been stuck with Superman, to the point where even her long-running solo comic book series was titled Superman’s Girlfriend, Lois Lane. Next year, however, DC Entertainment’s most famous journalist breaks free of the Man of Steel — and of the comic book medium altogether — with the release of a new young adult novel, Lois Lane: Fallout.

Written by YA author Gwenda Bond, the novel recasts Lois as a teen lead — described by the publisher as an “army brat” — moving to Metropolis for the first time with her family and, as fans would expect, finding trouble at her new high school. The book isn’t entirely free of Clark Kent, however, with the official synopsis mentioning a “maybe-more-than-a-friend” with the screen name “SmallvilleGuy”…

Bond first teased the project on Monday, describing it as featuring “an iconic character — definitely someone you know,” and a project that “has been so much fun.” Internet-savvy fans quickly uncovered more information — not difficult when the book has an Amazon.com pre-order page already — ahead of the official announcement (The DC Women Kicking Ass blog first reported the discovery).

Fallout is the latest attempt to reinvent superhero franchises as prose properties aimed at female readers, following the release of The She-Hulk Diaries and Rogue Touch last year, based around Marvel’s Avengers character She-Hulk and the X-Men’s Rogue, respectively. Additionally, Marvel currently has a line of prose adaptations of popular comic book storylines. The previous full-length prose appearance for DC’s Superman franchise was 2005’s It’s Superman! by Tom DeHaven.

Lois Lane: Fallout will be released by Switch Press in 2015.

Something For Your Pull List

LoisLane1banner

Have you been hankering for a really good Lois Lane story?  Well, get down to your local comic shop and have them put Superman: Lois Lane #1 on your pull list.  Don’t have a pull list or a local comic shop?  Then be sure to either subscribe or pre-order it digitally.  On February 26th, Lois Lane will get a 48 page one-shot written by Marguerite Bennett with art by Emanuela Lupaccino.

Lois Lane is known for chasing down stories — but what happens when the story is her family? As her father gains more power in the government, Lois’s sister Lucy has become involved with a deadly drug scene! Meanwhile, Lois thought she was rid of the influence of Brainiac, but now she finds that the the computer tyrant of Colu is calling out to her again!

Here’s what Ms. Bennett has to say about Lois and her book:

Lois’s tale is an adventure story—a sci-fi noir, if you will. Lois Lane is the first lady (queen? khaleesi?) of DC Comics, and I was in fits to offer up a story worthy of her. There’s an elegance to the structure and a poignance to the plot that I hope won’t strike a nerve so much as twist it, and leave our readers avid for more.

For Lois, I had envisioned not the clean, bright, idealized superhero art of Superman, but a deep, rich, and somewhat darker human world and underworld. Not the grit and grime of Gotham, naturally, but a place of depth, texture, emotion, and consequence—a place where things must be seen with their scars, and not from high above.

Regarding her favorite thing about Lois:   Oh, Lord, just one? May I say her general magnificence? May I say her audacity in the face of danger? May I say her willpower, when all the world is going to hell? May I say that she is neither a believer nor a cynic, but one who will face the world on the principle of truth and truth alone?

I love the conviction in Lois, how the same woman can maintain such calm and resolve and yet be so invested in the world and all its struggles. She cares so completely as to plunge into the fray, a war journalist or investigative reporter, because she knows that the truth must be brought to light, no matter how ugly, no matter how terrible. Yet she doesn’t permit the darkness, corruption, or trauma of the world she has seen to sully her. It can try and try and try again to dig its hooks into her, but she is fiercer and filled with more conviction than any human or superhuman foe can break. Within her discipline and self-reliance is, I believe, an inherent compassion—an understanding of our suffering, and a trust that the truth will better us—a trust that we will better ourselves.

Thanks to G-Man at Comic Vine for the exclusive interview.

This is the queen without a crown, the first lady of the DCU. Her resolve is legendary, but that same resolve has its consequence. Even in her youth, Lois was called upon to be the example, the good soldier, the mother to her younger sister, the lieutenant to her father. Her complexity is phenomenal, but it has a price as much as a reward.

This is the woman who has stood toe-to-toe with gods and watched them blink first. This is the human heart of an increasingly superhuman world, its center of conviction, compassion, and resolve.

This story is hers. She is no one’s supporting cast member, and her very foundations are rising up against her. I have read and loved reading Lois, from Lois the girlfriend to Lois the war reporter, but for this moment in time, I felt she deserved a story about her family, her friendships, her relationships, her mess, her struggle, her climb. (Things explode, too, but the story is a poignant one.)

For familiar characters, you’ll find Jimmy Olsen and Clark Kent, Lucy and Sam Lane, and Lois’s mother, as well, in addition to several original characters (one for whom I have high hopes).

The complete interview with Vaneta Rogers at Newsarama.

Hold on, there’s more from the Newsarama interview:

With Lois, however, if there is fan enthusiasm for the concept, and if the sales turnout is strong, Dan DiDio has told fans that a Lois series would be there for them. It’s entirely within the hands of the readers, though. For my part, I hope they love her as much as I do, because I would be overjoyed for fans to see what she can do.

Let’s get our girl her own mini-series or ongoing!

As of this writing Lois has psionic powers (see Brainiac reference in the bolded solicit under the cover), is interrupting the fauxmance, and has the Parasite after her.  Superman: Lois Lane #1 will be coinciding with Superman #28 (same month as Lois’ book).  General Sam Lane has become US Senator Sam Lane who is investigating something called The Tower (mentioned in Superman #26 and Action #27).  With her current psionic powers she knows Superman and Clark Kent are one-in-the-same, but that could change with Superman #27 later this month.  And Clark Kent apparently will be making an appearance in her book.  He’s gone back to writing and pining for the Daily Planet.

Lois is the key!  The big giant key like Superman used to have at the Fortress of Solitude.  Marguerite Bennett knows it and let’s make sure DC Comics sees we know it, too.   A strong, visible Lois Lane always inspires Clark Kent to be a better Superman.

So are you ready?  Let’s get the word out about Superman: Lois Lane #1.

If you are on twitter, use the hashtag #GoLois! in your tweets.  We want to get the buzz and the info out there.  Prepare your local comic shop and let DC Comics know, there will be a demand for this book!

#GoLois!

Show Your Appreciation for Lois Lane: A Celebration of 75 Years

LoisLaneGF

Lois Lane Girl Frenzy will be in Lois’ new graphic novel!

On Monday, November 25th, if you’ve pre-ordered Lois Lane: A Celebration of 75 years from Amazon. . . (if you haven’t, do it NOW), please tweet the following people on Twitter.  @jimlee  @geoffjohns  @dandidio1

State you’ve pre-ordered & include #LoisLane75yrs hashtag  (remember only 1 hashtag per tweet)

We really need to show our appreciation for the book we fought so hard to get!  Lois Lane recognized on her 75th anniversary.

On Wednesday, November 27th, this book will be in comic shops or retailers who sell graphic novels.  Please take a picture of your purchase/pre-order and send it to the same DC personnel with the same hashtag.  You can be as creative as you like with the pic.   So pictures of the book can carry on for some time.  Perhaps into the Christmas season since people may receive them as gifts.  (Got a Lois Lane fan in your life?)

This is all for Lois Lane, the First Lady of DC Comics (or at the very least, Action Comics – the book that started it all).  We need to prove that Lois Lane is a money maker.

Soon, you’ll be hearing about another ‘campaign for Lois’ which involves showing DC Comics how the upcoming Lois Lane one-shot (this February) can be sustainable as a series.  Let’s help out EvilMarguerite by showing them Lois Lane is not ‘just’ anything.  She is IT! #GoLois!

So tell everyone you know that November 25 and 27th are dates to remember in support of Lois Lane.  Get out there & tweet for the intrepid reporter!

You Asked For It, You Got It! #LoisLane75yrs

LoisLane75yrsbig

YOU HAVE THE POWER!

On April 18th, #LoisLane75yrs trended on Twitter.  Fans of Lois Lane gave DC Comics some backlash at the thought of having no Lois Lane celebration for her 75th Anniversary.  Lois was created in Action #1, 1938 along side Superman and Clark Kent.  DC Comics has ‘caved’ (their own words) and given us Lois Lane: A Celebration of 75 Years.   This 384 page hard cover, graphic novel will be in stores on Wednesday, November 27th.  Just days before ‘Black Friday’ shopping day in the US.  Be sure to get it for the Lois Lane fan in your life.  Please check with your local comic book shop to be sure you can get your book!  Or you can pre-order it on Amazon.  Do it now!

Inside the book you will find the following stories (all before the new 52 versions):

Action #1 (1938) – the story that started it all.  See Clark & Lois’ first date as well as Superman & Lois’ first interaction.

Action #2 – Clark & Lois’ first investigative story together aboard a steamer.

Action #6 – Clark  & Lois’ second date and a Superman imposter.

Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #106 – (1970) Lois Lane becomes a black woman.

Action #484 – 40th Anniversary story – (Golden Age/Earth2) Superman Takes a Wife involving 2 wedding ceremonies.  This story started the Superman Family books.

Man of Steel #2 – John Byrne mini-series where Lois Lane finally scores a personal interview with Superman.

Action #600 – 50th Anniversary story – Clark dumps Wonder Woman for Lois Lane.

Action #662 – Clark Kent reveals his secret identity to his fiancee, Lois Lane.

Adventures of Superman #631 – Lois Lane Kent imbedded investigative reporter in the Umec War.

All Star Superman #2 – by Grant Morrison. Superman takes Lois Lane to his Fortress of Solitude for her birthday.

All Star Superman #3 – by Grant Morrison. Superman gives Lois the capability to be super for one day.

Those pesky multiple storied issues:  (we don’t know which story DC will pick):

Showcase #9 – (1957) Lois meets Lana OR Lois tries to protect Superman’s secret identity OR Lois dreams of being Mrs. Superman and having a baby

Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #5 – (1958) Superman gives up his powers for Lois’ doppelganger OR See why Lois is known as the Girl of 100 Costumes OR Lois gets fat to solve a case

Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #16 – Superman gives Lois a signal watch OR Lois wears a French maid outfit to solve a mystery with Clark OR Lois becomes the Kryptonite Girl

Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #23 – Lois becomes Elastic Lass OR Lois suffers under the curse of Lena Thorul (Luthor) OR the trails of being married to Silver Age Clark with two kids

Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #42 – Lois in Atlantis OR Lois contemplates 3 wishes OR Superman & Lois become kids

Wonder Woman #170 – (2001) Lois interviews Wonder Woman for a day

Superman 80 Page Giant 2011 – Lois Lane Kent and Lana Lang Ross try to return a man’s wallet OR the one with Bizarro Lois

Even more complicated – which volume of Superman comics & which story will DC choose:

Superman v1 #29 – (1944) Lois vs the Prankster OR the 1st Lois Lane solo story:  Lois Lane Girl Reporter OR

Superman v2 #29 – (1989) Superman’s in space while Lois mourns Clark Kent’s disappearance and then investigates a military installation

Superman v1 #33 – (1945) Superman & Lois visit Mr. Mxyztplk OR another Lois Lane Girl Reporter story OR

Superman v2 #33 – (1989) Superman is still in space, but Clark has returned to work at the Daily Planet.  He doesn’t recognize Lois.

Superman v1 #34 – (1945)  Lois Lane Girl Reporter  OR Lois sees Clark change into Superman OR Clark drags Lois around while Luthor and aliens make everyone tired.  (no Lois in volume 2, 1989 of #34)

Superman v2 #168 – (no Lois in the v1 Superman 168)  Lois Lane Kent & Batman invade President Lex Luthor’s White House. (2001)  Hopefully DC will include the crossover in Detective 756.

DC listed Superman: Lois Lane #1 which we were unable to find a reference to.  However, that is the name of Lois’ double issue done in one written by Marguerite Bennett to be published February 26, 2014.  So put that on your pull list now. 

Our 75 years of Lois book is a reality, let’s support it.  More fun things to come in the days ahead to show DC Comics we LOVE OUR LOIS!

Stay tuned for more ideas on how to make Lois Lane a money maker!

Lois Lane Gets A One-Shot, But Why Stop There?

Put Superman: Lois Lane #1 on your pull list NOW

Put Superman: Lois Lane #1 on your pull list NOW

Lois Lane fans can rejoice (albeit temporarily), she’s getting her own book!  On February 26, 2014, Lois Lane will have a double sized issue of a one-shot story.  Written by Scott Snyder protege, Marguerite Bennett, with art by Emanuela Lupacchino.  In an exclusive interview with Comic Vine, Ms. Bennett states that the release date for Superman: Lois Lane #1 was moved up to be earlier than originally anticipated.  (More thoughts about that later)  She also refers to our beloved intrepid reporter as the First Lady (Queen, Khaleesi) of DC Comics.  Sounds like Lois couldn’t be in better hands, heart or mind.  Go read the article now!  Have a little squee time.

Superman and Clark Kent may not make an appearance in the story which is fine.   Me personally, I’m offended his name is even on the title.   Despite what those people who can’t get their heads out of the Silver Age (or  their asses) think, Lois Lane as a character can stand on her own.  She is a pillar of the Superman mythology, and has been from day one, Action #1, 1938.   Good creators know this even if decision-making executives don’t.

Lois will be dealing with family problems as well as an alien menace who still has a hold on her.  All that while relentlessly searching for the truth, no matter how ugly or vile or damaging.  Lois Lane eats the truth raw for breakfast and that’s why we love her!  And it should be why Superman loves her too, but  . . .

There’s always one of those, isn’t there?  New 52 Superman (not including Superman Unchained) is not truly Clark Kent.  He’s battling alien.  Clark Kent is not even a blogger let alone a journalist.  Scott Lobdell (writer of continuity Superman) had Clark Kent leave the Daily Planet because he thought they were doing infotainment instead of hardhitting news (and because Lois was reluctantly moving in with her boyfriend).   Cat Grant partnered up with Clark to start a blog.  Clark’s only contribution to it has been to fry competitor’s digital tablets so Ms. Grant could get an exclusive infotainment fluff piece to keep the blog solvent.  Journo Clark will never substantially exist while Superman is dating Wonder Woman.  Thus no Lois.

The Powers That Be or Diane Nelson (along with Jim Lee and Bob Harras) are bound and determined to keep shoving this fauxmance down our throats until we like it.  Smallville fans will recall the dreaded train wreck of a season 7 – “We’re giving them another shot.”  Speaking of Lana . . .

Greg Pak has taken over Action Comics.  He ‘loves’ Lois, but won’t be writing her.  He’s writing Lana Lang as Lois Lane.  Let me clarify that.  Lana Lang is as strong as Lois Lane, as determined to have her own career and thinks exactly like Clark.  Pak hearts his Lana.  He obviously has forgotten the first rule — Lois Lane cannot be replaced.

What Lois Lane fans may experience in the coming months in Action and Superman is Lois Lane not in the picture with Lana Lang being a Lois imitator and Wonder Woman in the Superman book.  The fauxmance has never been in Action so Lobdell will probably do Harras’ bidding in Superman.   Most Lois Lane fans aren’t purchasing Action or Superman and that will probably not change.  These ‘superbooks’ have had ever decreasing orders each month and if executive-interferring creative decisions continue to rule over what fans want, they will continue to fail.  Action and Superman are dangerously close to the 40,000 mark of iconic books going bad sales-wise.  With the decision to double down on the fauxmance and bring Lana in as a substitute Lois, book orders are just going to continue their plummet.

But fear not, there is some light . . . surprisingly from a unexpected source.   Tom Taylor, writer of Injustice: Gods Amongst Us, is now writing Earth 2 – and to his credit and perhaps his redemption in Lois Lane fans’ eyes, he is bringing Lois back from the dead.  No, not as a zombie — that’s Johns’ thing.  In Earth 2, Clark and Lois were married (as were Bruce and Selina, who had a child), Darkseid came and killed Lois (we’re not sure what happened to Selina).  Superman ‘died’ thinking his Lois was dead.  (a moment of bereavement for one and all)   BUT . . . (yep, there’s another one) . . . as we know death is a plot device in comics.

Superman has been Darkseided and has returned to Earth (2).  Some fans may recall 1989’s Action Annual which had a similar premise.  Earth 2’s story will be better.  We recommend it.  Here’s a quote from Taylor’s interview with USAToday on November 5th:

A new female Red Tornado is in town, too, and is going to be integral to the whole world and the coming war, Taylor says. “People will probably understand exactly how important Red Tornado is by the end of page 5. As far as I was concerned, Superman couldn’t come back without this.”

And here she is.  A gynoid (female android) who can transform to human, not your Ma Hunkle, but we’ll take it.

RedTornadoLois

So Lois fans do have some books to consider even if they are not the ‘superbooks.’   Superman Unchained (which will probably end in March, 2014 unless Lee pushes it back farther), Earth 2 (Lois possibly as the resurrected hope), Smallville Season 11, and sometimes the Adventures of Superman (digital first).   And then there’s the one-shot in February, 2014.  Yes, yes, I know you want MORE!

Fight the powers!  Fight the powers that be!  (Everybody dance)  DC Entertainment seems to be determined to yet again leave money on the table.  Why?  Who the hell knows?!  So what can we do about it?

We know from Dan Didio, because of the success of the #LoisLane75yrs tweet-a-thon, DCE ‘caved’ and gave us the Lois Lane: A Celebration of 75 Years book, due out November 26th.  Have you pre-ordered yours yet?  Some of the story selections for the book are a bit ‘strange’ but amazingly, the stories in the Superman 75 years book are often Lois related.   So think about getting both, but definitely the Lois one.

Also Didio told us that after ‘a couple of bad stories’ they would start building up Lois Lane and that he thought ‘they’ had pushed Lois down too far.  So maybe the one shot and it’s earlier release date is because he, at least, has heard the fans.  But why stop there?

If DCE caved once, they’ll do it again.  Let’s make our DEMANDS loud and clear.  They can keep their damn superbooks with the non-Lois (and thus, non-Superman mythos) stories.  Let them fail.  But . . .

WE WANT A LOIS LANE ONGOING SERIES!!!

Make DCE cave by making Lois Lane #1 a smash hit!  Show them they continue to leave money on the table.  DCE is a business and how do businesses profit and stay afloat?  By giving the consumers (that’s us) what they want.

GIMME GIMME

LOIS STORY IN SUPERMAN ANNUAL #2

CloissplashpageSAnn2

Despite the fact, Brainiac is on the cover, Superman Annual #2 is a Lois Lane, investigative reporter story. Spanning five years including when Metropolis was invaded by The Collector (Grant Morrison’s Action Comics), we see some of the residual effects of that event in the present time.

Preview pages of this Scott Lobdell story with art by Dan Jurgens (Death of Superman, creator of Doomsday and Booster Gold) showed a Lois Lane dying from a fall.   Fans were upset as this would be the sixth time a dying or dead Lois has been used in the past two years.   Soap opera much?   Lois has been used as death fodder to help the fauxmance along.

One unusual thing about this annual is that it is not a stand alone.  It is part of a story arc concerning a Psi War.  Lobdell is currently writing both Superman and Action Comics (after Andy Diggle left).   Lobdell probably needed the panel space before Greg Pak takes over Action in #25.

Despite Lobdell’s previous use of narration boxes from some omniscient non-vested entity, we see and ‘hear’ this story from Lois’ perspective.  It appears to be a solid story and hopefully Lobdell can continue this quality throughout this arc.  We just wish Lobdell would quit TELLING us stuff that happened with Clark/Superman and Lois in the five year gap — we’d like to SEE it!

This is the best and truly first time we see Superman come to Lois’ rescue in the new 52.  In fact, it may be the most interaction they have had since the reboot.  Jurgens continues to make us feel what happens between these two ICONIC characters.  (Caps for Didio’s benefit.)

Scott Lobdell has made Lois Lane the mother of her and Clark’s son, Jonathon Kent (from the future) and Connor Kent (Superboy).  In fact, she is Kon’s double mother, in that Connor not only has Jon’s DNA but also another set of DNA from Lois and Clark.  Clark’s was taken when he was tortured by the military in early issues of new 52 Action and Lois . . . we never were told when Harvest (the villain) took her DNA.   Since Superboy has psionic powers, is it possible that Lois’ blood was obtained sometime after the events in this issue?

The Superman books under Lobdell have been a chaotic mess, not only writing wise but also editorially.  DCE definitely has its problems with hodge-podging stories while ‘getting them out on time.’  And with their fierce ‘scrutiny’ of Superman’s story and lack of planning, this makes reading these books . . . painful.

Currently, there are only three Superman related books that give us enjoyment every time.  Superman Unchained by Scott Snyder, Smallville Season 11 by Bryan Q Miller and Adventures of Superman by various creators.  Check them out!

Greg Pak is currently writing Batman/Superman and has included Earth 2 Lois Lane (married to Superman) in the story.  Unfortunately, with the fauxmance bias, readers got panels of Wonder Woman stabbing a Lois.  Pak says he enjoys writing Lois.  Let’s hope he is able to enjoy writing her when he takes over Action in the late fall.

One book we hope that Lois Lane does not appear in is the Superman/Woman Wonder book.  Or better known by fans as, “the book that shall not be named.”  With DCE’s consistent killing of Lois Lane, we can foresee them totally throwing Lois under the bus in this book just to make Diana be the ‘prize winner’ of Superman.  It’s what little boys do when they get together and talk trash about girls.

Will we see more Lois in the future?  Perhaps, but more likely, perhaps not.  In September, there is Villains Month.  The evil ones win the Trinity War (oops, did I say that outloud?) but that’s not all folks.  From October to March we get to see Forever Evil.  (Forever in comic book stories is only 6 months long).  That’s right, if you read superhero comics to see good triumph over evil, save yourself some money and buy Christmas and Valentine presents.  Evil is going to rule the DCU from now on (or at least until tax time).

Is it a coincidence the book that shall not be named kicks off the Forever Evil arc?

Superman needs to get his act together and pursue Lois Lane or the entire world will end . . . period.
