The first season of Young Justice, 26 episodes on two Blu-ray discs, will be available from Warner Archive next week, on August 12. (Or you can get it from Amazon at a slightly higher cost.)
No extras, it appears, but fans of the show (which only ran two seasons) might appreciate having the full season instead of on four separate DVD volumes. (I’ve talked about the first three: Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3.) I wasn’t a fan because I wanted to see more female heroes sooner, and I wasn’t thrilled with co-creator/writer Greg Weisman’s response on the subject.
The show wasn’t given a chance to return to finish up its last storyline, but at the San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that Young Justice will be appearing in an upcoming Teen Titans Go! episode. Here’s the show description:
In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over — to peers, parents, teachers, mentors, and ultimately, to yourself. But what if you’re not just a normal teenager? What if you’re a teenage super hero? How much harder will it be to prove yourself in a world of super powers, super villains, and super secrets? Are you ready to come of age in such a world? Are you ready for life or death rites of passage? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you’re worthy of the Justice League? That’s exactly what the members of Young Justice — Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian, and Artemis — will find out … whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero.
