Young Justice #1
DC Comics (April 2011)WRITERS: Art Baltazar & Franco ARTIST: Mike Norton COLORIST: Alex Sinclair LETTERER: Travis Lanham ASSISTANT EDITOR: Michael McCalister EDITORS: Scott Peterson & Jim Chadwick
Left alone in Mount Justice, Superboy encounters a strange guy named Snapper and a control room that appears and disappears, and then the Joker arrives.
What they got right: Norton’s altered his style a bit to better reflect the cartoon, which I approve of. He also draws the creepiest looking Joker yet. Sometimes minimal is best.
What they got wrong: Well, not wrong exactly. The story has just started so I’m sure any questions I have (why does Snapper and the control panel keep disappearing and reappearing, and how did the Joker get there) will be answered. I just had nothing to put here.
Recommendation: Only time will tell if anything in this comic ends up contradicted by the show, but I like it so far. Give the comic a look.
