Bad news for Young Justice fans: the tie-in comic has been cancelled.  Even if you don't read it, it has bad connotations - for DC in the past the end of a tv show tie-in comic has also meant the end of the show.  With all of the re-scheduling & pre-empting, and now this, I wouldn't put money on Young Justice getting a third season.  Which sucks.

While I've never loved Young Justice as much as JLU, always feeling that there was much less range and subtlety to it, there was still little doubt in my mind that it was quite a quality offering.  It's a show made by people who obviously love the character and universe they're playing in, and it is consistently excellently animated and well written...in short, the type of thing that never lasts as long as it should.  I just can't understand what is wrong with the entertainment powers that be.  It seems impossible that Young Justice wouldn't have been popular enough to justify its existence.  Perhaps it will continue to endure, but because of its quality, and because of the relative intelligence of the decision makers, I guess I wouldn't be surprised to see it get cancelled.  I suppose the revelation that the networks and entertainment giants are run by lobotomized monkeys is not exactly breaking news...

I wanted to remind folks - Young Justice is back!  2 episodes have aired over the past 2 weekends, and they haven't even pre-empted it for months for no reason, or anything!

Yeah, I was very pleasantly surprised to find this showing up again on my DVR.  The last couple of episodes have been really interesting, and I've certainly enjoyed it.  I do miss the heart of JLU though, as this show seems to consistently be rather doom and gloom.  Still, I'm very glad to see it back.

WB and CN can both screw off with their Loeb-esque decisions. I don't know what's going on in the hero department, but apparently serious, layered series can't remain on the air, but the lighter, comedy oriented ones can at least secure 52 episodes right out the gate.

While this is sad, the series seemed to wrap up the first season storyline fairly well, even with the strong hook for a second season, so I think the overall series will still be satisfactorily complete.  It's still sad though.

I hope you're right Cat, and yeah Prev, that sounds about right.  I agree, the execs that are making these types of decisions could use a sound thrashing.

Agreed. Two of the best shows out right now, both getting cancelled, that just stinks. :banghead:

The fate of Green Lantern doesn't bother me as much as that of YJ, as I felt like it had more potential that was really realized, but it is still a loss.

Grah. I'm torn now, because I'm already committed to boycotting any marvel shows (outside of Shield, because I'd be a fool not to watch it) due to the fate of Avengers EMH, but killing off YJ is almost worse, because the show was/is far better. But boycotting shows from both is downright silly, so I'm forced to choose between which of the two I hate more.




...


Who am I kidding? Much as I think YJ and GL are superior shows, their demise doesn't surprise me (YJ suffered because of the constant delays between episodes, and GL's creation was intended to capitalize on the GL movie which completely bombed.) and I can at least give the executives the benefit of the doubt in terms of their respective success/failure.

By all accounts, the only reason EMH was cancelled was because Jeph Loeb is an idiot, and it's being replaced with a show that's supposedly the same as EMH was, but with completely different actors and animation and writers.

Cartoon Network's handling of their WB shows has really been bizarre of late.

They have relegated Scooby-Doo: Mystery Inc to the 2:30pm weekday slot (where very few people can watch it live) and given almost no promotion, they put Thundercats in limbo, abruptly delayed the DC Nation block for two months, and now they've finally pulled the plug on Young Justice and Green Lantern.  I can't help but think there's some corporate turmoil over at Turner/Time Warner.

I got my daughter hooked on YJ and she found this link for a petition to keep YJ from getting canceled

I already signed it and so did she, maybe it could help.

Allegedly someone who works at CN/TW suggested that fans forgo the petition route and instead do something that'll catch the corporation's attention: buying season passes on itunes (and grabbing DVDs)!

But internet petitions always effect change and action!


Seriously though, I'm bummed YJ is getting canned.  Figured it was coming, but still bummed.  It also makes complete season DVD sets ever coming out pretty unlikely.  Boo.

Actually, we've reached a point where it's actually far cheaper to get good quality versions via itunes then to buy dvds.

I always prefer to buy DVDs when I can, that way I own the material and can never lose access to it as long as I take care of the media.

Derrick J. Wyatt is a character designer for GL. He's not a writer or anything like that, so him telling us to buy dvds and itunes carries no more weight than you or me doing the same.

I hada bunch more to say, but the board ate my post, so I might come back later to type it all out again.

On Runaways: YJ does Superfriend

C'mon, tell me those weren't Samuarai, El Dorado, Apachie Chief, and Static standing in for Black Vulcan. 

I am SO going to miss this series.

I didn't watch SuperFriends enough to be too familiar with the cast, but I did start to watch if the Native American boy might be a modern take on Apache Chief.

And regarding the ending, which I didn't follow too closely because I was a little distracted at the time...
