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.
