Walt Disney Television Animation's fan-favorite series Gargoyles, a syndicated animated series created by Greg Weisman and starring a band of Gargoyles originally from tenth-century Scotland (and currently available, in part, on DVD), has recently returned in comics form in a series of 12 issues and a 6-issue spin-off comic, Gargoyles: Bad Guys, published by Slave Labor Graphics. Details on both series, and their cancellation, can be found on the series' Wikipedia page.

Essentially, both series present aspects of the unproduced third season of the television series. Arthurian characters are especially prominent in the second arc of the Gargoyles series.

Both comics series have been collected in manga-sized collections and include material that was unpublished due to each series' cancellation. They can be purchased on and direct from Slave Labor Graphics.

I append the details of each collection from the publishers web site:

Gargoyles: Clan Building Volume 1
Item Id: gargc1
The hit comic book series gets collected in trade paperback form just in time for the holidays. Gathering together the stories from issues #1-6, Gargoyles: Clan Building Volume One promises to be one of the best selling trade paperback SLG puts out this year. The series is still seen on the various Disney channels and the fan base remains as passionate about this book as it was during its initial run in syndication. Written by Greg Weisman, who created and produced the animated series and who is now producing the SPIDER-MAN The Animated Series for Sony, the stories presented in the comic book series represent the first additoins to the Gargoyles canon since the series ended almost 10 years ago. Presented in full color, this is going to be a must buy for all Gargoyles fans.
