Brian Michael Bendis' Young Justice -- the debut title for the prolific writer's new DC imprint, Wonder Comics -- has apparently made a significant impression on customers of local comic book shops, as the comic's first issue is already heading back to the printers just a few weeks following its release earlier this month.
"You know what's cool? (Besides the -29 degrees outside the studio.)" said series artist Patrick Gleason in a tweet. "[DC Comics] just let me know that [Young Justice #1] is going back for a second printing!"
Gleason's tweet is accompanied by a textless version of the book's cover, featuring the titular team's new lineup of Superboy, Robin, Impulse, Wonder Girl and Amethyst, as well as DC newcomers Jinny Hex and Teen Lantern.
You know what’s cool? (Besides the -29 degrees outside the studio) @DCComics just let me know that #YoungJustice 1 is going back for a second printing! @BRIANMBENDIS Thanks so much everyone! pic.twitter.com/M3b7AgnXyF— Patrick Gleason (@patrick_gleason) January 30, 2019
The Young Justice brand is certainly making its presence felt in 2019, as this news coincides with the never-ending cycle of positive reception for the DC Universe television series Young Justice: Outsiders, which also debuted to much fanfare early this month.
Written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Patrick Gleason, Young Justice #1 is available now. Issue #2 flies into comic shops on Feb. 6.
