Lois Lane is one of the most well-loved characters in the comics universe, with an appeal spanning generations. The character has been featured in a dazzling array of comics, films, and TV shows over the years, and most recently was featured in Warner Bros. Pictures’ Man of Steel. The novel, Lois Lane: Fallout, will appeal to the huge existing fan base of these media as well as young adults everywhere trying to fit in and make a place for themselves.

In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews writes, “This lighthearted and playful tone permeates the novel, making for a nifty investigative mystery akin to Veronica Mars or Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Readers are in for a treat. A spectacular prose start for DC Comics’ spectacular lady.”

The Hollywood Reporter says,”Step aside Katniss: it’s time for a teenage journalist to take over.”

In Lois Lane: Fallout, Gwenda Bond reimagines Lois as a contemporary high school teenager at the beginning of her journalism career – and at the beginning of her relationship with a certain, also-iconic mystery man. This story puts Lois at the center, where she belongs, fighting to protect those who need it and expose the truth no matter what it takes.

“Lois Lane has always been a strong presence in Super Hero lore. We’re excited that Gwenda will bring her to life in a whole new way for another generation of fans. Lois is the kind of interesting, adventure-prone character who needs to have her story told,” says Ashley Andersen Zantop, Capstone Group Publisher and General Manager. The Lois Lane series is produced through Capstone’s licensing partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment.

The hardcover book is 305 pages. List price is $16.95. To learn more, visit www.switchpress.com or www.loislanefallout.tumblr.com.
