All About Gargoyles and How to Use Them
Gargoyles were placed on the roofs of Egyptian temples where their mouths served as a spout for water. Similar pieces were also seen on Greek temples, though the figures were often carved into the shape of lions and other ferocious animals. The name gargoyle is often attributed to St. Romanus, or Romain.
According to legend, he saved his country from a monster by the name of Goji, sometimes called Gargouille. Supposedly the monster was so scary looking that it frightened off evil spirits. This led to some calling the monster a protector and placing similar carved pieces on churches and other important buildings.
The Tower of London in England is surrounded by gargoyles, all bearing different grimaces. Throughout history, gargoyles have been created in a number of different images and figures. Some images have even included people in the figures, such as a monk.
As these spouts became less popular, so too did the use of gargoyles. Starting in the 19 th century, gargoyles became more of a decoration than anything else. Highly recommended.

A History of Gargoyles
In , Marvel released a Gargoyles comic book series outside the main continuity of the series, but referencing specific events that took place within it. Greg Weisman, television series co-creator, did not have any direct involvement in the story development of the comic series, but was consulted on some plot points to be sure it stayed within certain boundaries. The series ran for 11 issues. Weisman was hired to write for the comic after a couple of issues, but Marvel cut ties with Disney before his run could be produced.
Weisman still has his unpublished script for the comic which he will use for issue 6 on the current series. The Marvel series was tonally darker than the television series, dealing largely with Xanatos' experiments to create creatures and machines to defeat the Gargoyles. Also to note, Beth Maza who appeared in a photo in Deadly Force and Petros Xanatos appeared in the comics before their full debut on the show.
The comic continues the storyline of the animated series, picking up after the second season finale, Hunter's Moon Part Three, with the first two issues adapting the first episode of The Goliath Chronicles. The comic diverged as of the third issue. The series had a promising debut with the first issue selling out, as did subsequent issues. The following videos were later released containing the remaining first-season episodes:.
Episodes were left unaltered, except for the removals of the "Previously on Gargoyles In , the tenth anniversary of its premiere, the first season of the series was released on DVD. The first half of the second season was released in December Weisman has stated simply, "Volume 1 did not sell enough copies. The episodes themselves are uncensored, restoring scenes which were removed on Toon Disney and the VHS releases. In , a video game based on the series was released for the Sega Genesis. A Super Nintendo version was planned as well however, it was never released. The plot involved the Eye of Odin attempting to destroy the world and Goliath the player must stop them.
The game was a side scrolling action game and had a poor reception. Weisman and his development team, before the cancellation of Gargoyles , planned several spinoffs featuring tangential characters from the series, as well as continuing the story of the Manhattan Clan. Only one of the projects ever entered active development: the series Gargoyles: Bad Guys , for which a leica reel was produced.
Slave Labor Graphics has released three issues of Bad Guys. There was initially intense speculation concerning the intentions of the producers had the series continued, but many have been since debunked by Weisman in the "Ask Greg" forum. Weisman has, however, also revealed some of his own plans for the show, had it continued.
Greg Weisman currently plans to release Bad Guys as a bimonthly black and white six issue limited edition comic book around October Should the spinoff series prove successful he will continue with the remaining spinoffs, but if not will then try to incorporate some of their elements into the main comic series.
Perhaps more than any other Disney production, the series has inspired an intense fan following. Disney acknowledged this with their selection of Gargoyles as their first animated series released for DVD retail in a season collection format. The Gathering of the Gargoyles is an annual convention begun in The Gathering has featured several recurring special events such as a radio play where Gathering attendees audition and take part, a masquerade ball where attendees dress up as their favorite character, an art show where the many talented artists within the fandom can display and auction off or sell their artwork, and several mug-a-guest panels where special guests sit around with fans and just talk about whatever comes to mind sometimes going late into the night.
Weisman is known to show the leica reel of Bad Guys at Gatherings. Click here to see the gallery. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki. This article is about the TV series. Contents [ show ].
