My Review of Lois Lane: A Real Work of Art 
Paul's Review of Lois Lane: A Real Work of Art

Synopsis: In a high school science class, Lois Lane must deal with some bad chemistry. . .

This is an official teaser short story for the young adult novel LOIS LANE: FALLOUT that takes place before Lois moves to Metropolis. FALLOUT is forthcoming from Switch Press in May 2015.


Review: So after reading A Real Work of Art, I knew I had to read Cloudy With a Chance of Destruction, if only to hold me over until I can get my hands on a copy of Fallout. This story was just as much fun as the other one, if not more so! 

This time, instead of being in an art class and using her innate reporter abilities to out the bad guy, Lois now has to save her entire school from a possible science experiment gone horribly wrong. I loved being in Lois' head, and reading her thoughts as she deals with the idiot who almost destroys the whole city. She's still hilarious and sarcastic, and I felt like Lois and I would have been great friends if she were real and we had ever met. 

I also thought her solution to the problem was fantastic, and I really enjoyed how she barely stops to think about the consequences because letting the other thing happen is way worse than whatever she might do. 

And then there's even more SmallvilleGuy, who I think is a great balance to Lois' impulsive, sarcastic personality. He seems more cautious and I really hope we get to see more of him in Fallout, and I'm really crossing my fingers that they eventually get to meet! I still want to know who he is for sure!

This story was just as great as A Real Work of Art, and I think any fan of Superman and/or Lois Lane will really enjoy these teaser stories. They've spiked my interest in Fallout, and I can wait to learn more about this teenage Lois Lane! 4/5.
