DC UNIVERSE INFINITE subscribers will have early access to the digital first comic, as Young Justice: Targets #1 will debut on the premium digital subscription service on June 14.

“It’s been terrific working with Christopher Jones again on another Young Justice comic, and I’m really excited for the fans to read Young Justice: Targets,” said Writer Greg Weisman. “It’s a fully canon six-issue mini-series, picking up right where Young Justice: Phantoms left off, with plenty of action, nearly our entire cast, and multiple new revelations.”
“It’s been an amazing journey years after working with Greg Weisman on Young Justice comics, getting the opportunity to help create storyboards for the most recent season of the TV show, and now returning to produce more comics,” said Artist Christopher Jones. “Between my growth as an artist and the fabulous color by Jason Wright I think these are the best-looking comics I’ve ever had a hand in creating. I love getting to help tell the stories of these characters, and I can’t wait for fans to see where things go after Young Justice: Phantoms.”
