Publication gap[edit]

Does anyone know where there was such a large gap between the release of the first and second issues? Comics are usually monthly, aren't they?

Yes Comics are usally monthly, but sometimes they are ever other month. I'm not sure which one Gargoyles is. I believe there is no "offical word" but here are a few of the common reasons, 1) it's a third party title, meaning they have the creator who doesn't own the title, the comic book company, and Disney. All three have to "agree" and approve everything. 2)not getting the job done in time, and 3) the unknown factor, ie: a death in the family, sickness, comic pages get lost in mail, etc-- FyiFoff 8:16 17 November 2006 (EST)

That's all entirely true - in this case especially. Gargoyles is being written by its orginal creator, but since Disney still owns the rights they will probably veto certain things that come up. If the writer wants to touch on anything that Disney doesn't want associated with the brand (extreme violence, Lexington's sexuality) then they can mandate changes; the comic label will want to reign some in things, too.

Gargoyles is intended to be a bi-monthly comic, coming out every other month. Issue #2 was delayed because the artist had some unspecified problems, which have now been solved. Issue #3 was delayed because Disney, which has to "approve" every issue after it is colored, took forever and a day to approve it. #4 came out on time however, and the people involved don't anticipate any more delays. As concerns Disney's approval, the creator/writer, pencilers, inkers, and colorists are now well ahead of schedule, so the two month space between each release should be enough for Disney to approve things on time.

Will the new Gargoyles "Bad Guys" comic be mentioned on this page, or will it have its own page?

For now let's keep the spin-offs here. If they become more prominent later on we can easily create a separate page for it.--M m hawk 05:59, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

The Comparative Sizes of Bears[edit]

Did the series win the Ursa Minor award, as noted in the reference, or the Ursa Major award, as noted in the text? San Diablo (talk) 03:11, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Release Dates[edit]

It states that Gargoyles #9 came out in June but from what I have been reading around on the Internet plus the fact that it still hasn't shown up on SLG's website tells me that information is false.

It also states that Gargoyles: Bad Guys #4 comes out in July but from what I have been reading on the Internet that sounds unlikely.

Obviously someone is putting up bogus information. So I will erasing them and putting TBA until a source can be provided to prove otherwise. --The Virginian (talk) 15:54, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Trade Paperbacks[edit]

Both Clan Building Volume 2 & Bad Guys: Redemption are being put out in Trade Paperback form. Both will contain the issues of the comics that were never released individually. Source: http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?rid=795 --The Virginian (talk) 01:29, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
