Lois Lane: A Real Work of Art (an official teaser short story) by Gwenda Bond - Paul's Review

*I received this book as an eARC from Capstone via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*


Lois Lane: A Real Work of Art
Author: Gwenda Bond

Synopsis: In high school art class, Lois Lane demonstrates her undeniable talent . . . but not for painting.

This is an official teaser short story for the young adult novel LOIS LANE: FALLOUT that takes place before Lois moves to Metropolis.


Review: This is a very short story preview for Gwenda Bond's Lois Lane novel Fallout. I am not that familiar with Lois Lane's history, but it is cool to see Superman's future love interest as a high schooler. 

This was a fun short story. The Superman fan service was a little much, but it kept the tone light. Burning vision reference, really? There was also a reference to comic books that I enjoyed. 

I'm intrigued who Lois Lane's "SmallvilleGuy" pen pal is. It's probably Clark Kent, but I'm hoping for Lex Luther personally. 

The story is kind of cheesy, but a lot of fun. It's a lighthearted short story that sets the tone for the novel. From this short story, I bet Fallout is going to be a fun mystery. 

I give this short story a 3/5. I'm going to definitely add Fallout to my tbr list.
