Seeing as how its December when I write this (who know when you'll see it tho...) I thought I'd ask...
What do you think of fruitcake? (The "food")
I liked the proto-names people came up with. Will I get into any trouble if I use the names that didn't nake it for some of my general fiction (which may make it into publication).
I'm no lawyer, but I wouldn't be too quick to appropriate names that you didn't come up with yourself into your published fiction. At the very least, it won't look to good should it ever be revealed.
Concerning Zot! you said:
<<I'm just sorry that it's over. Do you know if he has any plans to continue? >>
Just today, Scott McCloud wrote the following in the Zot! Message board:
Haven't worked out the details yet, but check back here and on the Zot! Main Page occasionally during the next week or two for announcements regarding further Zot! Online stories.
It is a distinct possibility!
<<It's also too bad that you never got to see the original color and Black & White Zot comics. They're amazing! >>
Yeah, too bad... I also have to wonder: Seeing how Scott McCloud is able to use the potential of a pageless online comic, it might seem weird to me to see him restrained into a normal page-by-page comic. Heh...
Eh, it was still great storytelling. ZOT! RULES!!
You said that a gargoyle in the past has converted to a human religion, what religion did that gargoyle convert to?
I was being general, assuming that over the course of centuries of human/gargoyle interaction, that there had to be at least one in the whole group that converted. I didn't have something specific in mind.
I was wondering which side of Goliath's brain is dominant.
If it's the left side, then Goliath is right-handed.
If it's the right side, then Goliath is left-handed.
If it's both, then Goliath's ambidextrous.
Which one is it then? I wonder because I've seen him punch with the right fist, but at times I see him punch with the left. Sometimes he even punches with both fists with equal ease.
I realize that this has a lot to do with the animators. If it's easier to use one hand instead of the other, then the animators use it, not minding which side of the brain is dominant, if not both.
Some animators do mind little details like these, so they animate according to what the creator has established.
So. Which side is it, if not both?
Thank you for your time. :)
I think he's a well-trained warrior. But also TV animation never pays much attention to what handed someone is. It's a luxury that we generally don't have.
I'm somewhat ambidextrous. Write with my right hand, throw with my left. So let's let Goliath be ambidextrous too. In fact, let's let everyone be ambidextrous. You too!
How would the clan react to Christmas? Would they have like it once they were able to understand it better through Elisa? Would they enjoy sharing the holidays with her?
Christmas existed in the tenth century. What part of it would Elisa have to explain?
Something I had forgotten to do, but which needs doing:
Thank you, THANK YOU, for the link to Zot Online! In these last few weeks I've fallen in love with the comic, and I think that Scott McCloud has become one of my favourite creators.
Let me just give the link again:
and for that matter:
Yeah, it's great.
I'm just sorry that it's over. Do you know if he has any plans to continue?
It's also too bad that you never got to see the original color and Black & White Zot comics. They're amazing!
Is the god that christians, jews, and muslims worship exist in the gargoyles universe?
Regarding the points raised by Sapphire and Todd regarding a 'Buffy' crossover: although I'm not massively well-versed in 'Buffy' stuff the biggest problem (and quite a big one at that) strikes me as the difference in views of good and evil. 'Buffy', as I see it, takes the footing that there's good and there'd bad, so you kill the bad guys and have a nice day. 'Gargoyles' always picked up on shades of grey though - 'there is good and evil in everybody' being, I suppose, the obvious quote. I don't know if this is misrepresenting 'Buffy' - or even 'Gargoyles'. Greg?
The only characters who strike me as really being evil for the sake of it are Jackal, Hyena, Wolf and maybe Iago. Demona is bad, but we saw her capable of goodness in 'THE RECKONING' and to an extent in 'CITY OF STONE'. Or at least we saw her reasoning. But even the above four characters seem evil by circumstance - Jackal and Hyena seem to be motivated by money and thrills, Wolf by action and the 'thrill of the hunt', and Iago by lust (love?) for Desdemona. But these aren't presented as evil simply because they're demons and that's what they do.
Greg, do you think there is a race that is innately evil?
I don't, no.
The Buffy Universe has it both ways. They show plenty of well-meaning Demons and vamps, like Angel. Plenty of grey in the Buffyverse. But also plenty of pure evil. Pure good? Well, that's harder to find. Duller too.
Note to Sapphire about the "Gargoyles/Buffy" crossover possibility:
While my thoughts on this one probably count less than Greg's (he's the creator of the series; I'm just one of the fans), I do think that such a crossover, while in some ways more feasible than, say, "Gargoyles/Batman" or "Gargoyles/Superman", does have a few snags to be overcome. One is legal ownership (Disney owns "Gargoyles", WB "Buffy"). Another is geography (Buffy and Co. live on the West Coast, the gargoyles on the East Coast).
(Of course, there's no danger as yet of "Gargoyles Universe" vampires being incompatible with the Buffyverse, since all that we know about "Gargoyles Universe" vampires is that they're vulnerable to silver - Princess Katharine mentions this in "Ill Met By Moonlight" - which doesn't contradict any statements about vampires in "Buffy").
But as I said, I don't view such a crossover as something all that likely for the near future, myself.
Not at all likely. But it might be fun to think about in a non-canon vein.
