    GARGOYLES #1



    Written by:
    Greg Weisman
    Art by:
    David Hedgecock

    Released from a medieval Scottish curse, the Gargoyles now live in the rooftops of Manhattan. But all is not safe for them— a mysterious organization called the Quarrymen are determined to see them all obliterated. The gargoyles must rely on each other and their human friends to turn the tide of public sentiment and show that they can live peacefully with humanity.

    Howdy,

    Just noting that I've mirrored this thread on the Disney Animation forum so the DA posters who don't normally hit their Friendly Neighborhood Comic Book Shop or the Comic Book Culture forum will know about this new comic, and can discuss it if they're so inclined.

    Didn't realize this was out already.

    Being a stickler, penny-pincher and all, I'm going to wait to see where this series goes before jumping on-board. The interiors (as seen in online preview pages) weren't so great.

    I enjoyed it. Still not thrilled with the art, and it was mostly old material, but I enjoyed it. There is some new stuff in there, like a scene with Matt Bluestone and Captain Chavez.

    Really, issue 3 is what I'm waiting for. But, I urge everyone who's a fan or remembers the show to pick this up. You won't be disappointed.

    How often is this scheduled to be released? Is there even a schedule or is it just on a "when it comes out" type of thing?

    I just tried to pick this up, but my comic store was already sold out. He said they would have more in next Wednesday though.

    As for the release schedule, I think it is every other month. GregX can probably clarify though.

    I had the same problem. I had to go to nearly every place I knew of that sold comics just to find a copy of it. Apparently, my normal comic shop hadn't thought there would be much of a demand for them, ordered only a few, and ended up selling out within a few hours of opening this morning. Hopefully, this is a good omen for the comic.

    That's still my major concern for this series: If we can get a complete tale in each issue, it might not be such a big deal...but I'm not convinced Greg Weisman is use to the comic book format, and thus, I fear it'll take 6 issues to tell a story that could be told in the span of a single issue...and on a bi-monthly schedule, this could take forever just to get the story somewhere interesting!!! I mean, the first couple of issues are going to be catch-up anyway...

    Greg Weisman stated in an interview that he was going to enjoy not being confined to a 22 minute cartoon episode when trying to tell a story, but I think he misses the point in that in this day and age, you really have to hook your readers and keep them interested, and thus, you either have to have a really great cliffhanger, or you have to satisfy the reader by having a complete tale in the span of one issue.
