This is going to sound like an odd question. What New York congressional district would the Manhattan Clan live in??? I know this is an odd question but I was just wondering. After having done research on it, I still don't have the answer. Thank you

Greg responds...

Well, I guess it depends if you were talking about the Clock Tower or the Eyrie Building.

Or maybe it doesn't. I'd have to do research, and I haven't.

Hey Mr Greg, just recently discovered gargoyles, great show.

Ok pointless question, but how do you think the Manhattan Clan is doing now after living in, Well Manhattan for 22 years?

Greg responds...

No spoilers.

In some ways it seems the surviving Gargoyles were quite lucky with who survived. As Hudson was elderly and the trio were teens, none were in a position to challenge Goliath even if they wanted to. There was a very clear chain of command. There was also no females, so there was no conflict amongst the males about mates up until Angela joined.
1)What would have happened if Goliath had survived with a female group or predominatly female group of Gargoyles such as Hyppolyta, Desdemona or True for example/etc? Would he have felt obligated to take a mate from this group to preserve his species?
2)What if all the survivors were of Goliath's generation? After what happened with Wyvern would these adults in their prime have still accepted Goliath's leadership?(E.G Iago, Coldstone, Desdemona, Hyppolyta etc)
P.S If you think the questions are too general could you please answer regarding the characters that we've met or you've told us about from the Wyvern Clan. Thanks.

Greg responds...

1. I'm not interested in hypotheticals.

2. Ditto. It's not about whether the question is too general or specific, it's the very nature of the question that puts me off. Everything is about context. A hypothetical brings no context except what the answerer chooses to add. And for me to create proper context for questions like these, I'd have to write entire series with the revised scenario ... and I'm not about to do that here.

Can you tell us how many members are a part of the Manhattan Clan as of 2010? If so, how many? How many eggs are in the rookery (we know at least 1, but are there more)?

Greg responds...

Yes, I could. But no, I won't.

Hey Greg! I just started re-watching Gargoyles and I've got a question for you. Now, Elisa really bought into the whole idea of Gargoyles a little easy and the Gargoyles really adapted to their new lives (and the drastically different version of the English language) really quickly. I know it's a cartoon and we're supposed to be suspended in a bit of disbelief, but looking back, do you ever wish you could have developed these things a bit more?

Greg responds...

No.

Is Fu-dog a girl? Why I ask this is because depending on the future of the Manhattan Clan, if Fu-dog's a boy, then there probably won't be any gargoyle beasts in this clan in the future, since Bronx is male.

Greg responds...

Fu-Dog is male. But Bronx's mate is Boudicca.

Would any of the Gargoyles have sympathy for Demona knowing how she suffered for those 1000 years or would they think she got what she deserved?

Greg responds...

Reactions vary and would vary, given more detail.

Some how I doubt this is your first crossover question, so I'm not going to go all FIRST on this one. Anyway: Which of the villains from Spectuacular Spider-Man do you think would be a good match for the Manhattan Clan, without it being too one sided?

Greg responds...

I'll leave that to your imagination, Clark.

If the whole Wyvern Clan survived the massacre and ended up in Manhattan, what would have you named the other members?

Joe Hypothetical. Jane Hypothetical. Hypothetical Doe. Hypothetical Smith. Hypothetical Jones. Jon Hypothetical. Etc.

I just started reading the comics there awesome.

I was just wondering how the gargoyles feel about the human race knowing they exist? Matt wants to cover them up, Xanatos wants to slowly expose them, and of course Castaway wants them all dead. But we don't really know what the Gargoyles want. They seem more concerned with their love lifes.

Greg responds...

Don't they though?

However, I think we were pretty clear about Goliath, Angela, Hudson, Brooklyn and Broadway's responses in issues 1 & 2. I'll let the issues stand.

Seeing "Reckoning" when Demona was explaining to Angela how she survived over a thousand years made me think, how much does anyone really know about her immortality; for example during "City of Stone" she lied to Xanatos about it, so…
1. How much of Demona's true story (about MacBeth, her immortality, the Weird Sisters, her clan after Wyvern, the Hunter(s), etc.) does Angela really know?
2. How much does Thailog know about Demona's true story?
3. How much does Xanatos know about Demona's true story?
4. How much does Puck/Owen know about Demona's true story?
5. How much do Goliath and the rest of the Manhattan clan know about Demona's true story?

Greg responds...

1. Very little.

2. Very little.

3. Very little.

4. Quite a bit.

5. Very little.

I meant to post this last Thursday, but it wouldn't have been answered then anyway, so I guess it's ok.

So, the Vernal Equinox of 2008 has passed. In Gargoyles history, ow many eggs would be in the Manhattan Clan's rookery as of the day I'm writing this?

Greg responds...

Are you so sure any hatched?

You mentioned that other Gargoyles would join the Manhattan clan besides Katana, Nashville, Fu-Dog. Will we see these gargoyles soon? Also does the manhattan clan have enough Gargoyles for Atermis to have a mate by the time he reaches full adulthood?

Greg responds...

"Atermis"?

David Xanatos is finally released from jail that morning and returns to the castle. He starts serving his probation.

Brooklyn resists taking the reins of leadership, but he does go to visit Talon and Maggie the Cat in the Labyrinth, where homeless humans like Al, Chaz and Lou have joined the Mutates in what is supposed to be a free society of outcasts. Broadway visits Matt Bluestone next, but Matt is equally in the dark over his partner's disappearance. Lex eavesdrops on Elisa's parents and learns they are also worried. Meanwhile on Queen Florence Island, Elisa and the gargoyles find each other again, and then find Grandmother as she transforms into the Thunderbird. Grandmother later admits that she was undergoing these transformations to convince Natsilane to take up arms against Raven to save the island. When Natsilane meets the gargoyles, he is convinced. The gargoyles and Natsilane battle Raven and drive him away. With Raven gone, Grandmother is able to heal the island.
