Well I'm really sad now, like proper, legitimately sad. I really liked this show, beautifully complex narrative, engaging characters(although it takes awhile to get to know them, wish you focused on fewer characters), and phenomenal animation-something that has been lacking of late. There goes another of the few threads binding me to television, now I just have Avatar the last Airbender and I'll be done with TV whenever Korra finishes. Sigh..
Wish you the best, thanks for the interactivity and devoting some of your time to us. Well, /continuing/ to do that, but I won't be around, so yeah. Just wanted to waste your time with a redundant sign off.
I wouldn't give up on all television just yet, Jasser. There's a LOT of great stuff out there. I personally watch a ton of television every week.
And in any case, I hope you didn't give up on YJ in JANUARY! We had two more months of episodes!
Can I ask what the inspiration was for Green Beetle (assuming there was one at all). Or rather, what made you decide to write a Green Beetle at all?
(Also, nice shout-out with his name!)

Gang, you NEED to check the queue in front of you to make sure no one's already asked your question. Otherwise, you're just clogging the queue.
What's the episode where Miss Martian's eyes glowed red, not green? While she's in her usual form, not her white martian form.
Haven't given up on the renewal of Young Justice or SuperMartian. May you have many more seasons as you can create and may SuperMartian get back together and STAY together.
I don't recall them ever glowing red. (But I won't deny it might have happened.)
As I was looking at the official ages for characters in Young Justice, I grew confused about Paula Crock's age being 48. That would mean she was born long before 1975, and before then there were practically no Vietnamese in America. I could understand if she came to America as a refugee, if it wasn't for her first name. If she wasn't born in America (which given her age, seems most likely) how does she have a first name as non-Vietnamese as 'Paula'?
Many Vietnamese took on more Anglo-sounding names upon moving to the West. Some orphans raised in Western orphanages in Vietnam were also given Western names. I'm not going to go into Paula's origins here, but there are any number of possible explanations. I will confirm that she was born in Vietnam.
In your post promoting "The Fix", you mention having been swamped with work lately. What have you been working on?

RAIN OF THE GHOSTS, BOOK TWO COUNTDOWN, Chapter Thirteen:
In my on-going shameless attempt to maintain buzz about my new novel, RAIN OF THE GHOSTS, due out in stores and on-line on December 3rd, 2013 (but available for pre-order NOW on Amazon, etc.), I've decided to countdown my progress on writing the SECOND book in the Rain franchise.
I just finished writing Chapter Thirteen.
But once again, I've miscalculated. Because it's now clear that what I thought was going to be Chapter Thirteen is actually going to be Chapters Thirteen AND Fourteen.
So tomorrow, I'll start writing the new Chapter Fourteen, which started out as the second half of Thirteen.
(For a guy who plans his stories down to the last detail, I've really been doing this a lot. But that's okay. It is what it is. I've got to let the writing itself dictate where to break these chapters. It's not like we're going to commercial here. It's just has to be what feels right for the characters and the story.)
Hey Greg, thank you for Young Justice, one of the best animated show ever made, thank you for Tim Drake, Wonder Girl, Blue Beetle, Nightwing, Captain Atom, Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman,Superboy, Miss Martian, Aqualad, Wally, Impulse, Barry Allen, Jay,(Flash Family) Queen Bee, Sports Master, DeathStroke, Rocket, Wendy & Marvin, Mal Duncan, Despero, L-Ron, Catherine Cobert, Lobo, Arsenal, all the green lanterns,Black Canary, and many more. for a truly DC Fan like you. Bravo.
You're very welcome.
What is your next project after Young Justice?
I am currently freelancing scripts for a couple different companies. (Octonauts, for example.) Mostly, I'm working on the sequel to my novel, Rain of the Ghosts, which debuts in December 2013.
Beyond that, I'm looking, talking to people, etc. I've gone over 14 months now without a consistent paying gig, and it is nerve-wracking. But I'm hopeful I'll have something soon.
would asking for more stephanie brown be a spoiler request?please tell me you get this.
I get it.
Hi, Greg. I really enjoyed Spectacular Spider-Man and Young Justice.
I do know the reason behind the cancellation of SSM but it's been confirmed that Young Justice is canceled. Can you please tell us why? The show had great ratings!
The show often had great ratings. And often had mediocre ratings. And occasionally had bad ratings.
There's also the fact that they had two other series waiting in the wings to get their shot in the limelight.
There's also the fact that our toyline was cancelled.
There's also the fact that we weren't in sync with the New 52.
There's also the fact that there is currently a perception that action is not doing as well as comedy in kids' television.
All, some or none of the above may be part of the reason why. I DON'T KNOW. I'm NOT part of that decision making process.
