Creator of “Gargoyles” Developing New Disney Comic Series

Gargoyles

In an interview with the New York Times, Disney’s “Gargoyles” creator Greg Weisman is working on a new comic series for the company. The project will be marketed to both children and adults since Gargoyles is a show that is aimed at everyone in between.

This new project will take place in the middle of the TV show timeline after humans and gargoyles have been fighting against each other for centuries. Crafting this story into comics will give an entirely different perspective on what occurred before these events.

For example, while there was tension between humans and gargoyle during episodes one through four of the TV show, no such tension exists as it does in comics.
