Art Baltazar and Franco Reform “Young Justice”

Posted: September 5, 2010 in Uncategorized

Beginning early next year, the tiny titans of the Johnny DC line hit a growth spurt as creators Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani join artist Mike Norton to launch the all-new ongoing series “Young Justice,” which takes its name and characters from the upcoming animated series hitting airwaves this November on Cartoon Network.

The forthcoming comic book ands animated series focus on young heroes Robin – the Dick Grayson incarnation – Kid Flash Wally West, Superboy, Miss Martian, Aqualad and the archer Artemis. Additionally, both take place on Earth-16 as part of the DC Universe Multiverse. Although the spirit of the characters and world remains the same as regular DC continuity, there are some differences between the regular DCU and Earth-16 – mainly that super heroes are relatively new to the world of “Young Justice” and the Justice League itself has only been around roughly three or four years. The comic book partially serves as a tie-in to the show, telling further adventures of the young heroes and follows in the wake of the recent restructuring of the Johnny DC line, with certain titles seeing cancellation and others seeing re-launches.
