Hi Greg! I have a question about Maria Chavez. Would she question Elisa keeping the gargoyles' existence from her? Thanks for your time.
I'm sure she would.
Hi. I have a question about Tachi the daughter of Brooklyn and Katana. Are we going to see what she looks like in the future? I am very curious about her. Will we ever see her soon?
"Ever" and "soon" are a tough sell in the same sentence, you know?
You've probably gotten this question 1 million times by now, but I'll ask anyway since I've tried to find it and haven't.
Is the gargoyles comic officially over, since the gatherings and fanbase have been down?...and if this question has been asked, could you link me to a couple of people who have asked it?
The comic is officially over for now, but I haven't given up on bringing it back.
1. What would happen to a Gargoyle if only a part of it was destroyed during the day? For example, if a piece of a wing or finger was broken off, would the injury be permanent like an amputation, or would the piece regenerate during the next hibernation?
2. How resistant to erosion are gargoyles during their stone sleep? The Manhattan clan survived a thousand years of exposure to the elements and yet showed no signs of breaking down.
1. I've answered this before. Please check the archives.
2. The sleep heels them. There's obviously some replenishment going on, but keep in mind that magic (and they were under a spell for the 1000 years) compensates.
What issues of amazing spider-man have you read? Do you follow the current comics and if not, why do they not interest you?
I've read a lot over the years, but I couldn't give you specific issue numbers. All the early stuff of course, and pretty much everything in the 80s and the early to mid-90s. And, yes, I've read Brand New Day (or most of it).
I was wondering something, and I know you don't like hypotheticals, but I wondered if you gave this any thought: Had Goliath and Demona stayed together in the 20th century, would he have still fallen in love with Elisa? Or would his love for Demona overshadow anything he could have felt for Elisa? I ask this because I wonder if Goliath and Elisa are a meant-to-be kind of thing (in your Gargs universe), and their love was inevitible, or was it only relative to Goliath not having someone (i.e. Demona)? Here's another way of looking at it as well: would he have fallen in love with someone else had he not met Elisa and things still went bad between him and Demona? Thanks for your time, and can't wait to hear your thoughts on the matter...I'm kinda hoping for a rant! :D But I totally understand if this is too hypothetical...I guess I just wondered if you ever thought about it. Thanks a lot!
I don't know about "meant to be" but I don't think it was inevitable that Goliath would fall in love with SOMEBODY given the deterioration of his relationship with Demona. Gargoyles mate for life, and Goliath's love for Elisa is a rare exception. I do think of it as something special. Not simply a result of her filling a slot. As for your initial question, it's largely too broad a hypothetical for me. But if Goliath and Demona were happy, and she wasn't trying to kill the human race, then no, I doubt Goliath would have ended up with Elisa.
Greg, I know that Spectacular Spider-Man needs to get enough ratings for a season 3. But how come the fans couldn't vote for season 3, besides getting enough ratings. Plus some people dont have "Disney XD",so they wont give any rating for the show.
So thank you for your time, and have a nice day.
I don't know what you mean by "vote". But, again, all moot now.
(Ohhhh, this is gonna be fun...)
Hey Greg, here are some questions:
1. If Season Three is announced upon the ratings for the "Final Curtin" episode that aires on Disney XD, I would think that Bill Fagerbakke would reprise Morris Bench if you plan an episode that brings about the introduction of Hydro-Man. Right?
2. If the series is successful after Season Three and you managed to make it to a season that deals with Peter Parker attending Empire University, what season do you predict that will occur in?
3. I have seen your Rambles of the Spider-Man/Gargoyles crossover that Keith David reprised Goliath and Tombstone in. Now that was humerous in some parts, don't ya think?
4. I was wondering if you have seen "The Super Hero Squad Show" (adapted from the "Marvel Super Hero Squad: toyline) yet? Though Spider-Man doesn't appear in the TV series yet, he will be featured in video game adaption.
1-2. All moot now.
3. I thought so.
4. I haven't seen it.
1. So now that Marvel/Disney has the rights to Spectacular Spider-Man could you, hypothetically speaking, use the Kingpin as a character now or does the Fox deal still prevent this? I'm confused on how it all works as I'd read before that you planned to use the Human Torch on an episode in the future, but wouldn't he also have been just as unusable due to the FF still being under the ownership of Fox?
2. Harry Osborne's character has developed from being the wimpy friend to the "steroid" using wannabe athelete to now being a vindictive schemer who enjoys watching his former friends (Gwen and Peter) suffer by keeping them apart. Often times it's easy to look at characters with rough upbringings and attribute that as the root of their personal defects, but I get the feeling that a good portion of Harry's actions are from inside regardless of the fact that he was raised by the Green Goblin himself. In your opinion: do you think it's just in Harry's nature to progress this way or has having Norman Osborne as a father figure slowly warped him into being just as Machiavellian and cruel?
1. All answered before, but now rendered moot.
2. Nature vs. Nurture. I'll leave that to interpretation.
i hope you make season 3 and plus you guys are doing a great job at the spectacular spider man and i hope to see season 3
Thanks for the kind words. Unfortunately, it now seems clear that Spectacular Spider-Man won't see a third season.
I've seriously become reobssed after finding this sight thank you so much for doing all you have for not leting gargoyles die. Now that I've complemented you how bout anouther question. What role will the Lady of the Lake play in the Pendragon spinoff? And how did know to go from london to newyork to find Auther
so far in advance?
I'm not going to get into the specifics of the Lady's role at this time. And, perhaps you're putting the cart before the horse with your second question. She wasn't looking for Arthur.

you asked "But -- and this is the key question -- are you public domain?"
I'm not really sure what you mean by that, but I'm definitely not copyrighted.
So, I guess, sure, I'm public domain.
If you feel so inclined you could email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd love to hear from you and see if there is any possibility.
Thank your time again.
I've forgotten what we're talking about, but if you are an individual then in fact you own you. So you're not public domain and not free for me to put into the series (if that's what this is about).
David B. Jacobs pipes in....
Why don't YOU check the archives, huh?
I got your archives right here.
Seriously, though... under what? Sending me a fragment of a former post, with no clear topic makes it nearly impossible for me to even know which archive to check. Compare that to the previous poster, who asked about the DVDs and about Bringing Gargoyles Back. Two clear archive topics for him to check.
I dont know if this site is still working so i am just gonna ask the question anywho, i was wondering if they where ever going to bring Season Two and Three of Gargoyles out on full DVD anytime soon, you know if that will ever happen? Also i was wondering if Gargoyles will ever come back to our screens? I mean its 2009 now i think Disney would love to add some more merchandising to their store shelves
anywho thanks in advance and keep up the good work
Please peruse the FAQ and archives to find answers to these oft-asked questions.
I have another question about the New Olympians, halflings, and the Law of Oberon (related to what Random Fan asked about the Law). In the Gathering, Oberon showed that his law is applied and interpreted differently for different halflings. Fox is too human because she has grown up with a mortal life, so the Law applies to her as to a mortal. But Titania has permission to interfere in Alex's life, perhaps because he is newborn and has not yet grown up to be human, but has the potential to be or become something else.
How does Oberon interpret and enforce his law in relation to the New Olympians? Are (or were, before the Gathering) the Third Race permitted to interfere in the lives of New Olympian halflings, or does Oberon view them as mortal and therefore not open to (unsolicited) interference?
The New Olympians ARE mortal.
Wow. This has been a big couple of weeks ANNOUNCEMENT-wise.
As some of you doubtless already know, YOUNG JUSTICE was announced today by Cartoon Network.
Here's the official press release info (with slightly better proofreading from me):
"Young Justice: In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and overâ"to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and, ultimately, to yourself. But what if youâre not just a normal teenager? What if youâre a teenage super hero? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove youâre worthy of the Justice League? Thatâs exactly what the members of Young Justiceâ"Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemisâ"will find out: whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero? This all-new series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based upon characters from DC Comics. Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) is the executive producer. Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman Doomsday, The Batman) and Greg Weisman (Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man, W.I.T.C.H.) are the producers."
We're hard at work on the 26-episode first season. Got a great writing staff in place, and the designs look phenomenal. I really think the series will kick some major ass!
And that's about all I'm allowed to say right now...
is goliath and elisa ever going to be together
Morgan... go ask Taylor.
Is golaith and ilsisa ever goig to be together.
Aren't they now?
About "Egwardo" how far along is he (or she seeing as it will hatch into Tachi)
in the incubation process as of the family coming back to the manhaten clan
Egwardo will hatch in 1998. Just over a year from when Brooklyn returns to "the present" in January 1997.
This is a rather common and obvious assumption, but I'd like to make sure (assuming you're willing to enlighten me): Is "Bushido Concepts", the company Sevarius has appearantly been working for, headed by Taro?
Did the thought ever occur to naming one of the Gargoyles "Queens"? I know, bad joke. Sorry.
Yes, that joke was in the pilot. But it got changed. Or did it?
Now that Nashville has (finally) been revealed, I've been curious about something. Is he bilingual (Japanese/English)? Also, is he able to read and/or write in either language?
He's at least bilingual.
Hi, i am a very big fan from Berlin/Germany. Sorry, but my english is terrible. (I think so) IÂ´ve seen every episode and i love it. Thank you very much. Now my question:
do you think/know of new gargoyle series. What do you need to create the series. (Maybe your fans can help?!) Please send me an answer to my private email adress.
Its very difficult for me, to read and write in english and I donÂ´t want to translate the complete site and all posts. I hope you understand me.
Thanks for all.Nice greetings from Germany! your Fan RenÃ©
As I've stated many times, I make it a policy not to respond to private e-mail addresses. If I did for you, I'd have to do it for everyone, which would mean giving my e-mail address out to everyone, which doesn't seem wise. In addition, it defeats the purpose of this website if I'm responding privately. I'm not sure why you'd have to translate the complete site. Just look for your name and translate this -- fairly useless response.
Because there's nothing new to add as an answer to your actual question.
Fans can help by SPREADING THE WORD and SPENDING MONEY on the product that's out there.
On the subject of halflings, I have been wondering for a long while how halflings that are part human and part animal (like the New Olympians) are born. My understanding from the archives is that a member of the Third Race can only breed with a mortal by assuming a truly mortal, flesh-and-blood body of the same species as the mortal they want to breed with. If this is correct, how does a mortal, with a Child of Oberon in a truly mortal body of the same species, end up with a child which does not look like the parents? For example, if a human and a Child of Oberon in a completely human body, like Anastasia, had children, how would the children look like anything except normal human beings? Or if a Child of Oberon took on a mortal horse form and mated with a mortal horse, wouldn't the offspring all look like normal horses? For example, how were the first centaurs, or the first minotaurs, born?
Fair questions... maybe they're second generation... since Fox clearly has magical power...
Or maybe you're putting to DEFINING a limit on the Children, given that their powers and abilities are all about loopholes half the time.
WHAT THE... Gregory T Farshtey, you telling that you got fired after the planning on Mask of Light, then why the Mata Nui had you wrote the books and stories about Marhi Nui, Voya Nui ETC???!!?!?!? Had they hired you again, or... (Not to be rude) Is you that responding, just a guy who is cheating us, and telling you is the old great Greg, just for fun, and moneys???? I love Greg's stories, and work! And i have translated (just for fun) the whole story on http://www.bioniclestory.com/ called Into The Darkness, but please tell me my friend, how you can be involved in LEGO if you isn't involved?
I think you're mixing me, GREG WEISMAN, up with this other Greg, whom I have never claimed to be. I worked (briefly) on Mask of Light, but was let go...
I never met Gregory Farshtey, but I have a vague memory that he was doing the comics, right?
Are there any other limits as to what the Children of Oberon can transform into, other than their own whims or a decree by Oberon?
For example, before Odin got his Eye back, his form always appeared to have an empty eye socket. Was this because he chose to take such an appearance, or because he had to?
He only had one eye. That was part of the mystic trade. He could have created a glamour that gave him the appearance of having two eyes, but he'd still only have one.
