from the Ask Greg comment room...
I have bad news from the SLG panel that took place this weekend during San Diego Comic Con:
The comic license will not be re-newed because the price Disney asked for was simply too high.
The current plan is too finish Gargoyles through issue 12 and Bad Guys through issue 6. However, it is unknown at this time how the material will be released. Depending on the availability of the artwork and the timing of the current license's expiration the remaining issues may not get published individually but may be released as a graphic novel. Regardless of how the material is deliever, Greg assured us that they will be completed (as in story, artwork, and color... except for Bad Guys whose artwork will remain black and white) one way or another. So on the bright side at least we will get to see the end of Gargoyles: Clan Building and Bad Guys.
The rest of the details I'll leave for Greg to fill in when he has time.
Well... that sucks. I mean we still have 9, 10, 11, and 12 (and that, plus the 8 issues already out, is more than we've gotten in 10 years) though it still rather sucks. Yet, for the moment, all I have to say, 'wtf? Disney'? From what standpoint does this make sense? They're not using the property and they should know this smaller company can't afford a higher asking price, so why the hell are you going to make it so no one benefits? Then again this is the same company that refuses to release a lot of it's series on DVD despite the profit to be gained from doing so. *le sigh* Well, maybe next time the license gets picked up it will manage a little better schedule or maybe be with a company that will allow it more exposure. *shrug* In truth I think I'll be able to keep from being truly saddened by this until after all the issues/trade get done and given how #9 still isn't out, who knows when that will be.
After getting my paycheck a day early I'm pleased to find I easily have enough to go. Though at first my mind went 'perhaps I should save instead'. Then my boss told me to 'fuck that' and go, sounds good to me. ;p
On another note: Today I had my first attempt at working a full shift in skates. *epic failure* The first customer I addressed with them on told me I was clearly looking to get myself killed(seeing as I almost did such getting to her, lol). Luckily Shawnee found a pair of roller blades after a bit and those worked far better. Not sure if I'll do that again though, as a mixture of me moving slower in getting used to the wheels + the slowness of the day led to me earning a painfully low amount in tips. Blah.
Okay so Demona and Macbeth can't be killed by anyone but eachother and all their injuries heal, right?
Well what if someone cut one of them in two. Would both halves heal creating two of them?
These are the things that come into my mind when I need to sleep.
I completely forgot about this until someone faved the pencil WIP on DA so here's it after putting some lines in and coloring a little.
Will finish it soon... assuming my computer stops closing the program/rejecting my tablet every couple of minutes. Grrrr...
ETA 1: More of Amp.
ETA 2: Got far enough to stop calling it 'coloring a little' still need more to get it close to done(still not sure if I'm doing it full body)
ETA 3: Blah, craptastic wings ahoy!
Quick 5-secondish sketch of thing my brain is focusing on viva Gargoyles #8
Yeah, I can't draw Lex. That aside... come on. You KNOW Staghart is screaming of teh ghey and this being the Clan Building arc... well, you never know what could happen. Right?
Hot Topic now has the first real piece of Gargoyles merchandise, sans the comics, in years!!! *squee* And I'm wearing it at this moment. *hugs self* It's actually
pretty nice completely awesome too.
I got it from the store itself(tired there first because I don't care to wait/pay shipping and wanted my military discount) though if your store doesn't have one and you can stand to wait you can always check out the website for it: http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/store/
As for me, I don't even like T-shirts but I'm so working this into my rotation of regular outfits.
