Young Justice Comic Book Coming From Greg Weisman With Help of Fans
Following a lot of fan support, Warner Bros. returned the favor by announcing Young Justice Season 3.
Now Young Justice creator Greg Weisman has posted an update for the TV show and is also offering to do a new comic book series.
"Brandon Vietti and I are hard at work on Season Three of the Young Justice television series. But (a) we just got started and (2) making animated episodes takes a LONG time. (Ten months minimum. MINIMUM.)," Weisman said. "So, if you want more new YJ stories sooner, the answer is pretty simple. Artist Christopher Jones and I are chomping at the bit to make more YOUNG JUSTICE stories in comic book form. Producing a comic book takes considerably less time than producing television episodes,so if we got a green light on a comic book series now, you could theoretically have new stories in a matter of months."
Greg Weisman goes on to state that to get the Young Justice comic book made, DC needs a bit more convincing.
"So the question is how do we get the green light for more YJ comic? And the answer to that is pretty simple too. We just need to convince DC Comics that there's a market for YJ comics even before the third season premieres," Weisman said.
Similar to how the Young Justice TV series returned for Season 3 by getting fans to watch the past seasons over and over on Netflix, Greg Weisman says showing support for a new comic by buying some of the Young Justice graphic novels will make a world of difference.
"Which begs the next question: How do we convince DC of that? And the answer is again simple. BUY THE COMICS THAT ALREADY EXIST!" Weisman said. "Issues #0 - #25 of our companion YJ comic have been collected into four trade paperbacks. (And ALL of these stories are canon to the series, with time stamps and everything. In fact, stuff in Season Three will play off of stuff from Seasons One and Two AND from the comics.) The best way to show DC that you want more comics is to purchase these stories electronically on the DC APP, on COMIXOLOGY, or on iTUNES."
Greg Weisman recommends getting the Young Justice comics digitally.
"Now, I'm an old school guy, and I love having actual hard copies to hold in my hand. Unfortunately, the books are all out of print. So if you do find hard copies online or in a store, those are secondary sales, and DC won't know about them. So you need to buy them electronically. Put money in DC's pocket and they'll want more of that green. Buy a lot of YJ comics and it just follows that they'll order up more YJ comics," Weisman continued. "If you already have those issues, give them as holiday gifts. And in any case, help us SPREAD THE WORD! It's just logic. The more the existing comics sell, the more DC will want to make more. And if more sell fast enough, you'll be getting more YJ stories sooner!"
