Peter David writing for Young Justice

Peter David, the writer of the original on-going Young Justice comic book, will be writing several episodes for the new animated series of the same name he announced on his blog.

First, I neglected to mention yesterday that I attended the presentation of the “Young Justice” animated series. The audience reaction seems overwhelmingly positive, and I’m glad to hear it, because (and I am now free to mention it) I’m going to be writing several episodes for the series. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to reconnect with the characters, even if there are some differences between the guys I wrote and the new incarnation. I would love to tell you all about my first episode, but I’m afraid that it’s…oh, what’s the word…Secret.

The Secret was the name of a young girl with a mysterious background who was freed from a Government owned “orphanage” for young super humans. She actually pre-dates David’s run on the title and first appeared in a Young Justice one-shot written by Todd Dezago.

A new Young Justice comic will be released by DC and will be written the current creative team of the Billy Batson book.
