DC Comics have announced ‘Girl Taking Over: A Lois Lane Story’, which is one of their upcoming Young Adult Graphic Novels.
Their YA Graphic Novels have been a hit to date and as someone who is out of that age range and have still read a lot of them, I can confirm they are brilliant. They’re a great entry point into comics and really offer unique takes and stories of iconic characters we know and love.
In 2023, DC are bringing hard-hitting journalist, Lois Lane to the collection in ‘Girl Taking Over: A Lois Lane Story’. It is written by Sarah Kuhn, with art by Arielle Jovellanos and colours by Olivia Pecini and is a story about her before she became a famous journalist.
Here’s a look at the cover by Arielle Jovellanos and Olivia Pecini:
Here is the official synopsis from DC Comics:
Writer Sarah Kuhn (From Little Tokyo, with Love) returns to the DC Universe with Girl Taking Over: A Lois Lane Story. With expressive and lively art by Arielle Jovellanos (Black Star), Girl Taking Over follows Lois, an ambitious small town girl tackling summer in the big city with gusto. Lois is excited about her internship, her cosmopolitan apartment, and the future she sees unfolding before her, only to find that things rarely go according to plan.
When Lois uncovers a potentially explosive scandal, she must team up with the last person she’d expect to publish her own website for young women. And as Lois discovers who she really is and what she actually wants, she becomes embroiled in her own scandal that could destroy everything she’s worked so hard to create.
If that’s not enough to entice you, check out the preview pages that have been released! I love the vibrancy of it all, it really works for this age range and the tenacity of this character.
Girl Taking Over: A Lois Lane Story is available to pre-order now from your local comic story and is set to release on 4th April 2023 and is priced at $16.99.
