Did Jay Garrick when was in his prime did most of his solo crime fighting in Central City or Keystone City?
Are you sure there is a Keystone City?
1. Given that the Third Race apparently knows about King Arthur's burial on Avalon (the Weird Sisters asked "Where's the sleeping king?" during their battle with the Magus in "Avalon, Part 3"), what is the significance of Oberon's referring to Titania as his "Once and Future Queen" in "Ill Met By Moonlight?"
2. On this question http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=1414 Todd Jensen mentioned a little bit about Merlin's life according to legend, including his encounter with King Vortigern. An eighteenth-century forger named William Henry Ireland wrote a play about Vortigern's life that he falsely attributed to William Shakespeare, on the grounds that Vortigern's story was so tragic, Shakespeare ought to have written about it. Given that King Arthur appears to have a prominent role in the Gargoyles Universe, and given also your love of Shakespeare, I'm especially curious to learn what role Vortigern has in the Gargoyles Universe.
By the way, I'm even more eager to learn what Shakespeare's story is in the Gargoyles Universe, than what Titania whispered to Fox.
1. You're assuming Oberon knows the title of the book "Once and Future King"?
2. No Spoilers.

I'll be at my table, which is "ANIMATION ISLAND 13".

If you buy both, you get a free RAIN OF THE GHOSTS art print, illustrated by Christopher Jones. I'll also be selling CD sets of the RAIN OF THE GHOSTS AudioPlay for $30 This is an unabridged four hour production with 20 actors (including Brent Spiner, Marina Sirtis, Ed Asner, Vanessa Marshall, Jim Cummings, Steve Blum, Thom Adcox and more), a full original musical score (by the composers of YOUNG JUSTICE and THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN) and sound effects. It's like a four hour movie in your head! Buy the CD set and you also receive a free print. If you ONLY want the print, it's $20. Plus I'll also be selling original Christopher Jones art prints of YOUNG JUSTICE and GARGOYLES for $20 each. Finally, I'll be selling copies of my animation scripts (from series including GARGOYLES, THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN, YOUNG JUSTICE, STAR WARS REBELS and many others) for $20 each.

Rain of the Ghosts Typo contest entry.
Chapter One: Drums, Page 3.
Last sentence of the first full paragraph on the page.
"Then in perfect synch, the two teens turned down a dark alley, the bikes at at a forty-five-degree angle."
There shouldn't be a hyphen between forty-five and degrees.
I think that must be a judgement call. I'm not counting that as a mistake. Sorry.
When did Barry Allen first fought Vandal Savage?
Sometime previously. I haven't bothered to nail it down.
Question about Artemis' outfit:
i noticed in one earlier question how you said the writers wanted to make the costumes for the Teams outfits as realistic as they should be - thus why none if the girls had heels or anything. i was wondering why they chose to give artemis a cropped top, or was it just an aesthetic thing? its something ive noticed with a lot of other female superheros and i dont really get it; i would assume it would be colder and make that region slightly more vulnerable.
side note: i think its cool how the team behind young justice to make artemis half asian; its nice to seem more minority representation in superhero shoes, especially as a half asian myself :)
1. You'd have to ask Brandon Vietti and Phil Bourassa. Maybe in-universe it's a freedom of movement thing. But most likely it's an aesthetic choice. Artemis' and/or Brandon's and/or Phil's.
2. It's a priority for us, and for me particularly, to get more diversity in there.
Why can't you accept the public's ideas on their newly created superheroes?
Because I - or the company I work for - could get sued over it. I don't want to take that risk, and the companies I work for FORBID me from taking that risk. For more clarity, check out the introductory page of ASK GREG here:
(I mean it's clear you skipped over it and asked your question without bothering to read it. Because the answer was spelled out right there.)
For the love of all that is mighty please do a season 3 of Young Justice, my 3 year old son and I love that show.
Ciera, why in the world would you think that decision is at all up to me?
Believe me, if it were up to me, we would never have stopped making it. (After all, why would I want to put myself out of work?) If it were up to me, we'd be premiering season seven this month.
Unfortunately, I don't get to make those calls.
1. Was Ra's Al Ghul intially hostile to the idea of working with lex luthor?
2. How long has Belle Revee existed since season 2?
3. What happened to Amanda Waller after she was fired from Belle Revee?
1. No. Why?
2. Huh? It was built before Season One.
3. No Spoilers.
1. What are Black Spider's webs made out of?
2. In universe how did the webs come to be red?
3. In universe who created Black Spider's webs?
1. Snakes and snails and puppy dog tails.
2. Easter egg food coloring.
3. The Easter Spider.
Okay, sorry for the joke answers. But the truth is I don't know.
