LOIS LANE AND THE FRIENDSHIP CHALLENGE TP
written by GRACE ELLIS
art and cover by BRITTNEY WILLIAMS
From New York Times bestselling author Grace Ellis (Lumberjanes) and artist Brittney Williams (Goldie Vance) comes a new story about 13-year-old Lois Lane as she navigates the confusing worlds of social media and friendship.
It’s the first day of summer break in the sleepy town of Liberty View, and young Lois Lane bursts onto the scene with what she knows is a sure-to-go-viral video channel. Okay, maybe her platform only receives two views a week (thanks, Mom), and maybe her best friend, Kristen, isn’t quite as enthusiastic about social media, but when Lois sets her mind on something, there’s no turning back.
At the end of the week, the big neighborhood barbecue and bike race will be the perfect backdrop to Lois and Kristen’s #friendshipchallenge video. But when the girls find out the annual fireworks are missing, Lois doubles down on her efforts for fame, testing her friendship in ways she couldn’t imagine.
With Kristen leaving for sleepaway camp after the barbecue and a new girl on the block taking all of Kristen’s attention, will Lois be able to find the missing fireworks, celebrate the summer, and post the best #friendshipchallenge the internet has ever seen? Or will she have to face her challenges IRL?

I’m excited for this Superboy 75th anniversary celebration. I’ve got the Superman, Lois Lane, and Lex Luthor volumes. They’re a lot of fun.

I’m also really happy about the John Byrne hardcover. Some of the TPB volumes are hard to find, so hopefully the whole run will get recollected in the future.

Interested in the Byrne collection. There’s also supposed to be a collection of George Perez’s Action Comics run which is great …except that they’re sticking his New 52 stuff into it.
