Lois Lane YA Novel To Be Published In 2015

Robot 6 reports that Lois Lane will star in an original young-adult prose novel next year, Fallout, written by Gwenda Bonds. Bonds is the writer of the books The Woken Gods and Blackwood, as well as the upcoming Girl On A Wire.

Bonds teased the project Monday on her official website by posting a teaser image for the book from her publisher Switch Press (a division of Capstone). Noted fan site DC Women Kicking Ass deduced the project from the image and wrote about it.

The novel will deal with Lois, a high school student, and her family moving to Metropolis. Wanting to live quietly after years of being an Army brat, Lois finds herself drawn into the mystery of a gang called the Warheads, who are using a video game to mess with another girl’s head.

The book will be published in May 2015. On her official website today, Bonds wrote, “I am completely overwhelmed — in the best possible way — by the reaction to the news. Because Lois deserves that reaction!

“Lois is an icon, of course, ” she continued, “a superhero without any superpowers . . . except her unmatched bravery and smarts. Not to mention her sense of humor and her commitment to truth and justice. She’s also one of my all-time favorite characters — which is why I jumped at the chance to write a novel featuring a teen Lois, moving to Metropolis and becoming a reporter for the first time. As I said yesterday, it’s been an incredible honor to do this project and work with the fantastic teams at Capstone/Switch Press and DC. And, most of all, to get to put Lois front and center in the starring role, obviously.”

A complete solicitation for the book can be found at the Superman Homepage. While the solicitation and the book’s Amazon listing tentatively indicates it will be published in January, Bonds has stated it will release sometime in May 2015.
