Time for a Breather


I've been trying to answer at least five questions a day here, every weekday, for quite a few months running. I'm still nowhere near coming close to emptying the queue.

But, as I'm certain some of you have noticed, the questions are, well, starting to grind on me. To get on my nerves. To tick me off.

Sometimes it's folks asking questions that are clearly answered by the material itself. On screen or on the page.

Sometimes it's folks asking for story spoilers, when that's clearly something I'm not going to reveal.

Sometimes it's folks ascribing motives for what I do that they can't possibly know.

Sometimes it's folks demanding that I acknowledge that my show sucks, with intense explanations for why I should do that. I'm okay with people not liking my stuff - wish they did, but you can't please everyone, all the time - but I resent people trying to convince ME that my stuff is bad. Maybe it's all in the phrasing, but it is, frankly, infuriating. Besides, I like my stuff.


I don't know if I've just hit a bad batch recently, but I think what's more likely is that I'm just burned out on it. That I'm reading negativity into perfectly innocent or at least neutral questions and statements. It's very possible I'm over-reacting.

Either way, my responses recently have been ire-filled, and I don't like that. It's not what I want ASK GREG to be. It's not, generally, what I think it's been for the last couple decades plus. (Give or take a tirade or smart-ass response, here and there.)

I took a few days off, posting Hercules premises, and thought that might help. And it did, a little. But clearly not enough. So I'm going to take an extensive break.

I'm tempted to close the question asking function for a time. But Young Justice: Targets is still coming out. And the new Gargoyles comic launches in December, and I want folks to be able to respond to those. So I've decided to leave the function alone for now. I realize that means that the backlog is going to continue to grow. But such is life, I guess.

I'm hoping that in a month or two, I'll be ready to come back. But for now, I need a break. Thanks and sorry.

How is Vandal keeping Leaguers busy on Appellaxia?
What happened to Bear and Dreamer's relationship?

Loved M'comm's view of the Greens as "a superstitious and cowardly lot," by the way.

Greg responds...

1. No spoilers.

2. It's progressing slowly.

Thanks. That was fun for us, too.

Hey Greg! I am a huge fan of your work! Recently the NECA Gargoyles line has become a hot ticket item for collectors such as myself and I wanted to asked if you have had the chance to get the Goliath figure for yourself yet! Also as a follow up, with the increasing in merch for Gargoyles lately, could sales for these down the road show Disney that there’s a strong interest in the brand still?

Greg responds...

I do have the Goliath figure. Love it! (Although, I've already lost the Jalapeña! Oh, no!)

And, yes, the more that fans vote with their wallet, the better!

In particular, keep an eye out for the new Gargoyles comic - written by me - from Dynamite Comics. The first issue is due out this December, 2022!
