Lois Lane: Double Down. Not Final Cover. Gwenda Bond. Switch Press. Capstone. 2016.I recieved this press release from Switch Press and of course I freaked out happily. WE’RE GETTING A SEQUEL!

DC Comics’ iconic character Lois Lane will be back for more in Lois Lane: Double Down, the second book in a new series from Switch Press, the Young Adult imprint of Capstone.  Following the success of the first book in the series, Lois Lane: Fallout, author Gwenda Bond returns with a new story of the adventures of a teenage Lois Lane, as she begins to discover her passion for journalism and become the character loved by generations of fans.

“Lois Lane is an icon, one of the most well-known and enduring figures in American pop culture–and for good reason,” says Bond. “She’s a hero all of us can relate to. It’s been a tremendous honor and a great pleasure to get to write about her in an all-new way, as a modern teenager, and I’m thrilled to be continuing her story in Double Down.”

I had the pleasure of interviewing Gwenda for Lois Lane: Fallout and I really loved reading the book. We’ve covered it a lot on this site as Lois fans (along with a review) so it’s great to see that quite a few people have enjoyed it as well. I’m glad that Switch Press is moving ahead with a sequel, Lois Lane: Double Down, which is set to come out on May 1, 2016. See guys? There IS a need and we might not have gotten our 1930s Lois Lane solo comic (the dream. THE DREAM) but we did get another adventure starring our teen hero. I wonder if we’ll get some short stories leading up to the book’s release like last time…
