No Justice for Young Justice

It came out today that the two animated series currently filling Cartoon Network's DC Nation block - namely Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice: Invasion - are not being renewed for the 2013-2014 broadcast year. This has been feared for a while, particularly in regard to Young Justice, which will become yet another excellent Greg Weisman series canceled too soon - or should I say too Young?

I mention this here because something else Young Justice-related came out today. I've started writing a few product descriptions for the web site nerdywithchildren.com, and today they released my endorsement of Young Justice: Season 1 - Volumes 1, 2, & 3. I originally wanted to spotlight the recent release of Season 2 Part 1, but they asked me to do this instead. I was happy to oblige and to take time out of my day to explain why I think this series deserves to stay on the air.

Also, here's the first time I ever lauded Young Justice. It's ironic that it was about "The staying powers of superhero shows." Sigh...
