Young Justice Comic Cancelled
 
So it appears that the Young Justice comic tie in to the TV series has been cancelled.

Given all of the drama over DC Nation and the cancellation of the toy line, is this the final nail in the coffin of that series?

Damn. I have a feeling that's probably a bad sign when comes to the TV series.

Yeah; I think that all of the canaries in this coal mine are now dead.

Anybody know what its ratings were like? Why do they want to kill the show?

Very sad to hear. While not the biggest fan of Young Justice (it was, hm, too stiff and militaristic in structure and mission deployment if that could be understood.) I do go out of my way to support every arm of the DC Animation wing, including tie ins.

Doesn't look good for the show's return.

The usual reason when it comes to shows like this.

The toys aren't selling.

The September 2012 issue of Young Justice, issue #20, sold an estimated 7,515 copies to comic shops in North America. The title has been experiencing a slow growth in sales from month to month for the past year, usually an addition 1% jump per issue, though the switch to the second season Young Justice: Invasion era of the animated series has resulted in a bigger 5% jump in comic sales. Please note these numbers do not take into account copies appearing on newsstands or sold digitally.

No toys and no comic book tie in.

A season 3 of "Young Justice looks to have a tough road ahead promotion wise.

The only thing I know that's relevant to Young Justice is the video game.

I believe there was an Animated Green Lantern comic too. I wonder if that's being cancelled as well...

Since the comic and the show are no longer in line with the current 52 this is not a surprise.

What??? The animated DC or Marvel shows and the comics based in them have never been "in line" with the comic continuities. They've always been alternate realities. Young Justice even made it official -- the behind-the-scenes material asserted that it took place on "Earth-16" within the DC multiverse. So there's absolutely no reason why that would be a factor in the comic's cancellation or the show's dire straits. It never has been before.
