Gargoyles: Dynamite Launching New Comics Series Continuing Animated Show

The Protectors of the Night are coming back! While Gargoyles isn’t returning in its previous format, the cult classic will pick up right where it left off with a new series of comics from Dynamite Entertainment. Though little about the new Gargoyles series has been unveiled as of now, Dynamite did say show creator Greg Weisman will help run the title as it picks up from the series.

Exact release schedule or the creators on the project have not been announced as of yet, but Dynamite has landed the license for the project. It’s expected the latest series will continue the story of the show, just as previous iterations have done. After the series ran for two seasons on ABC, a format change took place before the third season, which many—including Weisman—consider non-canon to the first two outings.

Weisman previously wrote an 18-issue Gargoyles comics run for Slave Labor Graphics in 2006, which picked up the events from Gargoyles Season Two. Before that, Marvel had its own 11-issue Gargoyles run while the show was running. Though the Marvel series reference events from the show’s first season, Weisman also considers it non-canonical.

It’s unclear if the Dynamite series will retcon the SLG comics run or will pick up from the ending of that. Dynamite also said its license includes “facsimile reprints,” which likely means that the hard-to-find Marvel comics will receive a new printing.

The launch of Disney+ has given the franchise new life, with the series becoming one of the platform’s most popular shows during launch…

Stay tuned for more as the plans firm up.
