So... aren't we off to a good start?!
Can a man simultaneously be sarcastic and not?

YOUNG JUSTICE PRODUCTION UPDATE
So where are we...?
With the start of DC NATION, Episodes 101-119 have now aired.
120-126 are all in the can, and at least the first four of those are scheduled to air this month (March 2012).
Episodes 201 and 202 are in the can.
203 has mixed. We'll do the online tomorrow and then that will be in the can.
204 is in post-production. We locked picture last Friday and spotted the music today.
205 is in post-production. We called retakes for it last week.
206 should come in for post, pretty much any minute.
207-209 have all been fully shipped overseas for animation.
210-214 have also shipped though some of the color work on BGs and models is still being completed here.
215 should ship this week.
216 is in board revision and notes.
217 is in slug.
218-219 boards are going to slug and notes ASAP.
220 clean boards should come in early this week.
The trade collecting issues 0-6 is out, I believe. I have a copy, but sometimes I get my comp copy a week or so early, so I'm not sure.
Issues 7-13 are all out.
Issue 14 should come out very soon.
Issue 15 is being inked.
Issue 16 is being pencilled.
Issue 17 is being scripted.
Issue 18-19 are being plotted.
Yes, that's right. "Misplaced", the nineteenth episode of YOUNG JUSTICE, aired today on Cartoon Network.
If you missed it - or just want a second look - it will rerun tomorrow on Cartoon Network. Check local listings for times.
So I've finally gotten through the queue. I could definitely feel myself getting cranky again by the end here, so I'm going to take a short break.
Young Justice resumes airing on Saturday, March 3, 2012, and we'll reopen ASK GREG's question/posting function on the same day.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE follow these simple guidelines BEFORE posting.
1. DO NOT REQUEST SPOILERS!! All requests for spoilers will be met with "SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT." Prefacing your spoiler request question by saying, "I hope this doesn't trigger a spoiler alert" or the like doesn't help. THINK BEFORE YOU POST. If you're asking me for information about what is TO COME on a show, it's a SPOILER. And I flat out will not answer. So all you're doing is clogging the queue.
2. CHECK THE ARCHIVES to make sure your question hasn't already been answered. Any question already answered will receive an "ASKED AND ANSWERED" response. Again, this only serves to clog the queue.
3. CHECK the UNANSWERED QUESTION queue before posting your question. I may not have answered it yet, but if you can see that someone's already asked the question, then there's no point in asking it again. All you'll receive is another "ASKED AND ANSWERED" response. Really, the amount of times I was asked Zatanna's age was just preposterous. If I'm taking the time to answer your questions, the least you can do is LOOK to see if your question was already asked before posting and clogging the queue.
4. CONSIDER asking your question from knowledgeable fans BEFORE posting it. For example, the folks at http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/comment/ are very familiar with my work and can usually answer stuff much faster than I can.
5. If you are asking multiple questions in one post, please NUMBER your questions. And if you're asking more than, say... ten... then create a separate post.
6. But please, do NOT flood the queue. Show restraint.
7. Please do not submit any original ideas, notions, concepts, or drawings of original characters. No stories, no fanfic, no teleplays, nothing.
8. No original ideas masquerading as questions. Asking me what Demona did during World War II is fine. Asking me if Demona tried to assassinate Hitler during World War II is an idea masquerading as a question and is not all right. I'm sure you can all see the distinction.
9. No requests for employment. If you want to ask generally about how one might break into the business, I'll try to give my perspective, but this is not an appropriate forum for personal pleas for work.
If these guidelines are followed the results benefit us all:
a. The queue doesn't bog down. I'll get to questions faster.
b. I'll be happier, which means I'm more likely to expand on the questions I can answer, instead of being so fed up that I speed through those too, just to bring down the size of the queue.
I know I must sound like a curmudgeon here. AND THAT'S ONLY BECAUSE THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I AM! (ASK ANYONE!) But you can help reduce my curmudgeonliness by following these guidelines.
See you in a week(ish).
I believe a demon has possessed my alarm clock.
I believe this demon to be related to the demon that already possesses my bathroom scale.
I do not believe I can be shaken from these beliefs.
Anyone out there remember MECHA-NATION, the three-issue comic book mini-series created by Victor Cook, developed by Vic, Greg Guler & myself, written by me and drawn by Antonio Campo?
Cuz we FINALLY finished it!
The MARCH PREVIEWS will be out on FEBRUARY 29th and will contain order information for MECHA-NATION #1-3!!!
(That's right, if you missed the first issue, you'll now have the opportunity to get all three (the complete story) at once!!)
Make sure you friends and fans know about PRE-ORDERING as that will be important for us in getting the word and the book out to stores everywhere!
The book itself will be out in May.
It's a really fun story, and Antonio did a great job illustrating it! Check it out!!
I mentioned my upcoming (this summer) appearance at Denver Comic Con, but coming up fast (faster?) is WONDERCON.
Brandon Vietti and I will be appearing at WonderCon at the Anaheim Convention Center on Saturday, March 17.
The tentative schedule incudes:
4:00-4:30 pm SIGNING
5:00-6:00 pm PANEL
So stop by!!
Today we recorded (most) of Young Justice episode 220, i.e. the final episode of Season Two. We had a nice little cast party today, which is bittersweet, of course, since we don't know if we're merely taking a break with a pickup coming some day - or whether this is it.
By the time we've finally recorded everyone (probably sometime next week), this single episode will have TWENTY-FOUR voice actors in it. That's 24 actors playing 35 speaking parts. And those 35 speaking parts make up less than half of the 77 total characters that will (likely) appear in the episode.
Other stats (of interest only to the truly nerdy geek):
Across two seasons, we'll have used 91 actors to play all the speaking parts.
Season One had 179 name characters (not all of whom speak, of course) over its 26 episodes. (At least through the script stage. A few, like Catherine Cobert, may have been cut for time by the time the episodes aired, and I haven't recalculated for that.)
Season Two had 145 name characters over 20 episodes.
Together (i.e. if you merge both lists), the two seasons had a total of 241 name characters over 46 episodes.
Season Two scripts ranged between 30 pages long (episode 216) and 36 pages long (201 & 220).
Line counts ranged between 197 lines per script (203) and 255 (214).
Number of actors used per episode ranged between 6 (202) and 24 (220).
I will be signing autographs, doing panels, etc. at the Denver Comic Con for their inaugural event on Fatherâs Day weekend June 15-17th. The weekend long con benefits Childrenâs Literacy through the Comic Book Classroom, a new program teaching children to read through comic books. They have already announced a legion of guests including Jasika Nicole, Michael Uslan, Mark Ryan, Tom Kane, Steven Seagle, Barry Kitson, Jason Aaron, James O'Barr, Gail Simone, Bob Layton, Georges Jeanty, Rebekah Isaacs and more! Hope to see you there, early bird tickets are only $45 for weekend passes.
We'll talk Young Justice, Gargoyles, Spidey, you name it!
