Waiting on Wednesday (91): Lois Lane: Fallout

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Lois Lane: Fallout
Gwenda Bond
Publisher: Switch Press (Capstone)
Release Date: May 1, 2015

Lois Lane is starting a new life in Metropolis. An Army brat, Lois has lived all over—and seen all kinds of things. (Some of them defy explanation, like the near-disaster she witnessed in Kansas in the middle of one night.) But now her family is putting down roots in the big city, and Lois is determined to fit in. Stay quiet. Fly straight. As soon as she steps into her new high school, though, she can see it won’t be that easy. A group known as the Warheads is making life miserable for another girl at school. They’re messing with her mind, somehow, via the high-tech immersive videogame they all play. Not cool. Armed with her wit and her new snazzy job as a reporter, Lois has her sights set on solving this mystery. But sometimes it’s all a bit much. Thank goodness for her maybe-more-than-a friend, a guy she knows only by his screenname, SmallvilleGuy.

I grew up watching the '70s Superman movies and the Lois and Clark TV series, so I'm excited to see Lois Lane get a book all to herself. I'm also enjoying some of the YA versions of some of my favorite comic book characters, like Marvel's Ms. Marvel, and I've heard really good things about this one.

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. This is actually SUCH a cute idea! I haven't seen Smallville, but I sort of know what goes on. What really struck me were the parallels and how they still were different in some ways <33

    My WoW, here!

    1. I've never seen Smallville either, but I might have to start watching if this book is as good as I hope it is. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. So excited for this book. I'm a huge Lois fan, and a young adult myself. Like someone out there said "hey let's make a book for TK". This idea sounds like the perfect Lois, Lois and Clark, and mystery story. Can it come out faster?? Already pre ordered.

    1. I'm sooooo glad that someone is making a Lois Lane book. I can't believe it's taken this long actually.

  3. okay, I was SUPER burned by The Last Days of Krypton, but this sounds cool enough to take the risk of disappointment. Lois! with her own novel!! And maybe an internet crush on Clark Kent! Definitely want to read!


You are going to put words in my box?! *squeezes you* Now I shall stalk YOUR blog!
