My Thoughts:

I am big anything-superman/girl universe fan! I love everyone involved in this universe, so when I saw this teaser I though I’d give it a shot to see if I should get the series. This short story/teaser takes place in high school, mostly the science class, with Lois Lane as the main character. Lois Lane is a feisty character, and I got a taste of that in this short story, but unfortunately the rest didn’t grip me as much as I hoped it would. The spark was missing. And even though I do want to pick up this series still, it isn’t a priority.

I think this is one of those cases where the story was just too short. At the end I was left a bit disappointed and thought: “was that it?!”

  • Ah yes, short stories are tricky. I mean, I think it takes a super talented author to grip you with so few pages. Hopefully the lengthier version has more to offer!

    • Sugar & Snark

      I hope so too!
