Product Description

Product Description

Young Justice: Volume One

Amazon.ca

Four of DC Comics' most dedicated superhero sidekicks get their own shot at the spotlight in the energetic animated series Young Justice. Though it shares a name and some characters with Todd Dezago and Todd Nauck's comic title, the Young Justice series, produced by Greg Weisman (The Spectacular Spider-Man) and Brandon Vietti, follows its own story arc, in which Robin (voiced by actor/pop star Jesse McCartney), Aqualad, Kid Flash, and Green Arrow's teenage charge, Speedy, decide to establish their own identities as crime fighters. Despite serious misgivings from Superman (Nolan North) and Batman (Bruce Greenwood), the quartet are given their own case, which leads to the discovery of not only a cloning laboratory within the Cadmus organization, but also Superboy (also North) among the replicas. After a brief lineup shuffle that sees Superboy replace Speedy and Martian Manhunter's niece, Miss Martian (Danica McKellar), join their ranks, the newly formed group takes on such established DC villains as Bane (well voiced by Danny Trejo), Kobra (Arnold Vosloo) and his cult, and Mister Twister (John de Lancie), among others. Young Justice should win over longtime DC fans and newcomers alike with its respectful nod to the imprint's long history and characters, and the smart, breezy, and action-filled tone of the series. Unfortunately, the season-one, volume-one DVD is something of a letdown, offering only the first four episodes (none of which include Artemis, who joins the team in episode five, and is prominently featured on the box cover art) and no extras. It may serve as the impetus to check out the rest of the series, but its limited presentation lacks the impact of a full-season set, which is how this terrific series ought to be seen. --Paul Gaita

Young Justice isn't quite up to the standard of Justice League Unlimited. It lacks that show's Iron Age political consciousness. But truthfully, that's the absolute worst thing you could say of it.

Like all the best superhero cartoons, this show is as not just a series, but a serial. It's a show where a large scale story arcs are gradually built up over the course of a whole season - and indeed, not only within each season, but between the seasons. I say "like all the best", because that's the format that's always seemed best able to bring out the more adult side of the superhero genre. It not only allows for more sophisticated plot lines: It also allows for the gradual development of character, and the relationships between the characters, while still leaving plenty of space for the spectacular action sequences that all fans of the genre love.

I know this is a controversial topic among fans, but personally I like season two a little better than season one. However, due to the complex nature of this show, I would say that seeing season one first is an absolute must.

I'd give the show itself (and yes, specifically season 1) 5 stars no problem. However, I'm taking off a star due to the questionable nature of the DVD release. This business of releasing shows in "volumes" rather than seasons is just so typical of the way things work in animation. Come on, Warner Bros.! You don't do this with your "grown up" shows!

Theo.

They still don't "get it" May 22 2011
By D. J. Foley - Published on Amazon.com
I have been watching this as it's been coming out and I was pleasantly surprised at how good the storys were. The personalities are an interesting mix and "real" problems are being addressed in a measured and responsible manner.

So on the whole I'd call "Young Justice" a reasonably good follow-on to the recent line of successful WB/DC Animated Series (Batman, Superman, Justice League, etc) the problem is that this is "V. 1"

They tried this with the Justice League and it didn't work.

Guys, guys, GUYS! FULL SEASONS! A reasonable price point (say $30.00) and the ENTIRE SEASON in one set.

This is not hard to understand, so why don't you?

Still? Aug. 16 2011
By Chad Thomas Valdes - Published on Amazon.com
I really do want to buy this series, but like most others, I refuse to buy in any other format besides a full season. Dont know what market exec thinks this is a good idea, but I've seen it done across a variety of shows and its really lame. Its like they think we have a ton of disposable income or lack the patience to wait for the full season. Sorry, not buying unless full season.

Young Rip off is more like it. Aug. 26 2011
By Kenneth P. Mills - Published on Amazon.com
I pre ordered this dvd, I am a huge fan of the TV show "Young Justice". I am not a fan of being gouged by Warner Brothers.
a measly 4 episodes? Had I known that I would have not ordered. Please avoid, they will release these either in a box set or the price will drop, save your money.
Instead buy the "Justice League" full seasons.

Wait July 16 2011
By Tony Mangum - Published on Amazon.com
They have shown only nine shows out of how many. They really need to do a better job of putting the show out. They have been picked up for next year. But I will wait for the complete season. I hate when they come out with short seasons it is a waste of money and peoples time.

Decent show, but why no full season? Nov. 8 2011
By N. Beitler - Published on Amazon.com
Please do not buy this DVD! I hate the way producion/marketing executives try to milk consumers for every cent by putting out several editions/partial collections of a "season" and then releasing the complete season a year later. Don't encourage this kind of marketing! Consumers don't want to pay [what usually amounts to] double price for something, but that is just what happens when people buy these seasons, broken up into several, single-disc releases. We want complete season releases! Night-time drama shows are not broken down into several separate releases. Why do this with shows for children? Do they think we're stupid? Don't prove them right by buying this SINGLE DVD!

Yes, this show is pretty good. It is well-written, has good animation, and the voice acting is also well-done. Still, when it's offered in such a small dose for such a high price, the whole thing just stinks. Get it right WB!
