    Awesome! Make sure to spread the word to your friends.

    No mention of Puck/Owen situation yet, but I'm sure it'll come up in future issues.

    I really liked the Marvel Gargoyles comic back from the 90's. I read a few issues of the new one, but the constant delayed shipping schedule made me drop the book. I think I'll read it as a trade, it might be easier to keep the story fresh in my mind.

    Sad news my friends. The SLG license has expired on 8-31-08. That means there will be no more individual comic book issues on either Gargoyles or Bad Guys.

    However, SLG does still have the right to put all existing material out in the Trade Paperback format. They are also allowed to include Bonus Material in these trades.

    Gargoyles: Clan-Building, Volume One will remain available, and as soon as possible, we will be putting out Gargoyles: Clan-Building, Volume Two and Gargoyles: Bad Guys: Redemption out in trade.

    Gargoyles: Clan-Building, Volume Two will include Gargoyles issues #7-8, but it will ALSO include what would have been issues #9-12, including the covers, as QUOTE-UNQUOTE Bonus Material. You WILL get to see the end of the Clan-Building arc. Currently, issue #9 is done except for a few minor lettering corrections. Issue #10 is being pencilled as we speak. Issue #11 has been scripted, and we are looking for the right artist to pencil it. Issue #12 is being scripted now. The trade will come out when ALL this material is complete and approved.

    The Gargoyles: Bad Guys: Redemption trade will include Bad Guys issues #1-4, but it will ALSO include what would have been issues #5-6, including the covers, as QUOTE-UNQUOTE Bonus Material. You will get to see the end of the Redemption limited series. Currently, issue #5 is done except for a few minor art corrections and the lettering. Issue #6 is scripted, and Karine will begin roughing it out shortly. The trade will come out when ALL this material is complete and approved. (source: http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?rid=795 )

    I'll be back to post news once those two trades come out in the future. Thank you to everyone who bought the comics, all of you that spread the word, and all of that continue to burn a flame in your hearts for Gargoyles.

    So in other words, they're gonna finish up work on the incomplete issues, then release them in TPB form?
  14. TiniTinyTony Force Ghost

    Yes, pretty much, this way the incomplete story becomes complete.

    Well...that seems kind of pointless. I mean, if they can complete the story by finishing the issues and doing it in a TPB, then they can do them as individual issues. By this logic, IDW can get Simon Furman to finish the script for the Dreamwave Transformers story "War Within: Dark Ages", which he was in the middle of when Dreamwave went under.

    I don't fully understand it either, but it was made clear to us my Greg Weisman himself that the last stories will be released as "Bonus Material" only. I don't know why they can't just publish them individually. If I get a chance to ask Greg at http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg , then I will. But I'm not really concerned by the how, just concerned with the when, which will hopefully be January 2009 according to Dan Vado of SLG.

    I really hate that self-referencing cover. Otherwise, I'm looking forward to it. Can't wait.

    Hey, Tini. Have you heard when Clan Building Volume 2 is coming out? I'm trying to compile a budget list for the month, and need to know where to stick that on it.

    There has been no specific / official release date announced yet. Amazon says July 29th. So I'm anticipating that day, maybe the 22nd if we're lucky for Clan Building Vol 2.

    Bad Guys Vol 1 is slated for the first week of August, so hopefully we'll see it released on the 5th.

    So in other words, start saving your allowance now. :) And between you and me (and everyone else who reads this thread), I think they're going to be cheaper on Amazon compared to your comic book retailer, but I have no patience so I'm going to my comic book guy on release day.

    When I find out the official dates, I will post them here.

    The Previews order form I got said it was coming out the 29th, but then again, it also said that the majority of the comics I pick up come out that day, too, and that turned out to not be true, so that's why I asked.

    That's what I do, too. Getting a 10% off discount on account of my status as a regular customer helps, too.

    Thanks.
