It seems that Lois Lane is finally getting the recognition she deserves. Usually she is constantly known and referred to as “Superman’s Girlfriend” or love interest, and it’s about time she steps into the limelight.
Not only are we getting a Lois Lane mini-series later this year, but we will also be getting a Lois Lane solo graphic novel! Although we do have to wait a little longer for it. During the “Book Buzz” panel at the ALA (American Library Association), DC Comics announced some of their upcoming titles for 2020 and 2021. Although not much detail was revealed about the upcoming book, which I am eagerly awaiting already… we do know who the creative team behind it are! The book will be written by Grace Ellis and illustrated by Brittney Williams.
Grace Ellis is a comic writer known for her work with Image Comics. She wrote and co-created the Lumberjanes series, which won many industry awards. Brittney Williams is an incredible artist who’s work is vibrant and colourful. If the creative team are anything to go by the book will be full of GIRL POWER and I am all for that!
So far, all we know is that the book has been put together as part of a scheme called “Books for Young Readers”. This specific book, among others are aimed towards Middle Grade school children. Release date-wise, all we really have is 2020 or 2021 to go by, no specific date has been announced. The title has not yet been confirmed, but is currently being referred to as “Lois Lane” by both DC and the creative team.
At the moment, I’m not sure what to expect from the book, but I am very excited about it. Like I said, it isn’t every day we get a focus around Lois Lane, so I am ALWAYS here for any project that does just that! As soon as I know more about the upcoming novel, I will share the information!
