When you were creating the other clans how did you decide which locations would have still have Gargoyle Clans over the others?
Some of it was about logic (like the clan on New Olympus). Some about story ideas we had (like M.I.A.). Some about a desire for geographic distribution (like the Mayan clan in Guatemala). Sometimes it just felt right, like the notion that there would eventually be a clan in Paris at Notre Dame, site of some of the most famous Gargoyles in the world. Sometimes it was as silly as ... hey, they're animating the series in Japan and Korea, so let's put clans there. At some point later on, the ideas became more fixed and were explored (at least in my head) in much more detail.
If Demona had succeeded in Hunters Moon do you think the Manhattan Clan would have stayed in Manhattan? Would Demona have survived the spell, did even she know or care whether she did?
See my previous answer. You just don't need my help for this stuff...
1)What do you think would have happened if Demona hadn't betrayed Macbeth to Canmore? Do you think her clan would still be around or do you think that due to Demona's nature they were all already living on borrowed time?(I'm still waiting on Clan Buliding Two maybe that will give me some answers)
1. As I've stated many times, I'm just not all that interested in exploring all the various "What if?" hypotheticals. I could come up with my response, but I might as well leave it to your imagination.
When we see Felicia drive up to Ryker's in "Opening Night," her ID says Selina Drew. Is the Selina bit a reference to Catwoman, or just a coincidence?
Call it an homage to Catwoman and Spiderwoman. Or an in-joke.
Hello there once again Mr. Weisman, and thanks for your time. I haz a question regarding Timedancer that came to mind while I was reading my Volume 2 of Clan Building: are there more places Brooklyn and company have visited, and more things they have done, than are being told? Or will that be yet another no comment?
Yes, there's 40 years worth of places and things to tell.
You know I've been to the Gargwiki, and you have a lot of characters like Artus and such that have no pictures, and I heard you aren't publishing anymore series, but instead of doing a series, why don't you do like a "bonus" book that only lists characters old or new, and give bios underneath their protraits.
I think it might be cool for your series.
It's not up to me.
Hey Greg! I was wondering if you'd seen any of the recent BBC series Merlin, where Merlin is roughly the same age as Arthur, and if so, what did you think of it?
Thanks for your time!
Haven't seen it.
Hey, I just watched Batman: The Brave and The Bold, like I do every week, and was pleasantly surprised to see you had written the episode ("Death Race to Oblivion!") Great ep, loved it. My questions are these...
1) How did this come about? Did James Tucker and staff approach you, or vice versa?
2) Were you a fan of the show prior to your involvement? If so, was there any particular episode that was a favorite of yours?
Anyway, fantastic ep again, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for more Gargoyles comics down the road. Hope you and your family have a safe and happy holiday season!
1. I let story editor Michael Jelenic know I was available, and he later called on me to write a couple of episodes.
2. I hadn't seen it until I got the first gig, but I then watched every existing episode prior to starting work. I think it's great fun. And it's hard not to pick the musical episode as my favorite.
A while back I remember you commenting how it annoys you that when folks praise Batman the Animated Series they mention Timm and Dini (rightfully) but not Burnett. Actually, I just did a search and see you mentioned it several time, and that it mystifies you. Since I had wondered something similar, (his name was so prominent in the Dark Deco look episodes, and don't really remember it after), I was going to ask if you have a theory why. Instead I'll ask if it, in some small way, factored into the Naming of Owen Burnett?
The "Owen" part of the name was in the original development. The last name Burnett came from writer Michael Reaves, so you'd have to ask him if Owen Burnett was a tribute to Alan Burnett.
And I don't have a clue why Alan doesn't get all the credit he deserves -- other than the fact that Alan doesn't seem to seek it at all. He's a modest guy. Not an attention whore like me, for example.
Hi Mr.Weisman,i love your Spectacular Spider-Man show.It is a fantastic show which i recommend for everyone to watch and i hope Marvel/Disney will renew series.I am very worried that this show may not be renewed or may be there will be some major staff and writer changes and show will become like Gargoyles:The Goliath Chronicles which you consider non-canonical and fans don't really like it.Anyway i have some questions.
1)First of all i know you planned everything from day one(i mean about plotlines,character development,episodes and etc).So i want to ask you do you felt the pressure when you and your team made episodes,do you felt that fans might have considered your show a mediocre one or just they wouldn't like the episodes?
2)What's your opinion about other Marvel shows like Wolverine And X-Men,Iron Man Armored:Adventures and Super Hero Squad Show?
3)Are the chances that there might be release of Spectacular spider-man soundtrack?
4)I'm bit confused,since Disney owns Marvel and Sony returned tv rights of Spider-Man to them,can we fans expect appearance of Wilson Fisk,The Kingpin Of Crime?And does Kingpin exist in Spectacular Spider-Man universe?I mean you can't use other superheroes in your show(yet) but they exist in Spectacular Spider-man universe,so i wonder,does Kingpin exist in Spectacular Spider-Man universe?
So this all my questions,sorry if i made some grammar errors.Bye
1. Well, you always worry. But we liked what we were doing, and we hoped others would too.
2. I haven't seen them.
3. I'd love it, but I don't know if there are any plans for that.
4. All moot now.
