dccomics.com teased the plot for the upcoming Young Justice six-issue mini-series saying:

Queen Perdita has been kidnapped! Mysterious armoured assailants have snatched the Vlatavan royal out from beneath Bowhunter Security, leaving Green Arrow and Black Canary poisoned and comatose in the process! Now a rallying cry echoes around the globe, and across super-teams, to band together and rescue Perdita!

Creative team Greig Weisman & Christopher Jones recently spoke to dccomics.com to express their excitement about penning the follow-up Young Justice comic teasing:

"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 colour 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."
