Catching Up with the Gargoyles

Slave Labor Graphics has three graphic novel/comic book collections available from their popular Gargoyles comic book series (based, of course, on the Disney TV series Gargoyles). Clan Building Volume 1 collects issues #1 through #6 of the full-color Gargoyles comic. The plot directly follows the events of the original Gargoyles TV series, while ignoring the events of the later Gargoyles: Goliath Chronicles TV series [long story — ye Ed-otter].  It also features an introduction by Elfquest creator Wendi Pini. Clan Building Volume 2 collects issues #7 and #8 of the comic book series along with the not-yet-published issues #9 through #12. One of those issues, #10, was illustrated by Greg Guler, the original character designer of the TV series. Meanwhile there’s the spin-off comic book series Gargoyles: Bad Guys, now collected in a trade paperback edition that brings together the first four-issue mini-series as well as two un-published issues that complete the story. “Five of the toughest villains in the Gargoyles Universe: Hunter – member of a Scottish family of gargoyle-slayers; Dingo – Australian mercenary and charter member of the deadly Pack; Matrix – a nanotech hive-mind artificial intelligence that came very close to destroying the Earth; Yama – a Japanese gargoyle who betrayed his own clan, and Fang – the mutate who would be king. Take this quintet of felons and force them to work on the side of the angels. It may be hard to believe, but these Bad Guys are the best hope we’ve got!” Bad Guys features black & white art by fan-favorites Korine Charlebois and Stephanie Lostimolo. Both Clan Building and Bad Guys were written by Gargoyles series-creator Greg Weisman. You can see previews and order Gargoyles merchandise (like t-shirts and TV series DVD’s) at the Gargoyles Comics web site.
