Hello Greg!

I love your show, but I felt a bit betrayed when all the other canon romances got to be a major thing except Chalant. Chalant was the most popular relationship on the show and season 4 gave us exactly what we wanted. Dick and Zatanna flirting and being together again. I hope if you get more content, that you circle back to Chalant! You had a great thing with her being a magic performer and Dick being an acrobatic performer. Please don’t get rid of it!

No question - just props! i just finished viewing Young Justice: Phantoms, and it was so good I binge watched the entire run, and then rewatched a second time. I'm in my mid 50's here (so have seen and experienced quite a lot in my life to date) and have to say that the depth of each storyline, the character work, action and execution were pitch perfect.
keep doing what you're doing sir!! I look forward to the next run (and hope for a quick release on this seasons blu ray)

Mr. Weisman,

If "Young Justice" gets a season 5, I suspect that we might not be able see the Earth-16 version of Jonah Hex. However, do you think that his descendants Stella Hex (great-granddaughter), Virginia "Jinny" Hex (great-great-granddaughter), and Chastity Hex (even though her exact relations to Stella and Jinny is currently unknown in the comics) could somehow make possible appearances in a future season?

#1. Why does the Earth-16 version of Mercy Graves never say a word on the show? I mean, the only sounds she's ever made thus far is whenever she gets hurt/injured in some way...

#2. When exactly did Mercy Graves receive her cybernetic enhancement for her right arm? Also, was this cybernetic enhancement something that she went through willingly (which I assume is her own way of showing how deep her loyalty is to Lex Luthor) or not?

#3. What is the last name of the Earth-16 version of Otis?

1. Just wanted to start off by saying Young Justice's worldbuilding is just amazing, and it's one of my favorite versions of the DC Universe. Was there ever any talk of making some kind of Earth-16 guide or encyclopedia to include info about the world that the show itself couldn't cover?

2. Young Justice has this really cool balance between realism and comic booky stuff. How did you and the rest of the staff decide what aspects would be more grounded and what aspects wouldn't? Like, who wears tights and who wears armor, what technology gets explained etc.

3. Love your work and thanks for everything :)

Hi Greg I am a big fan of your work on young justice and spectacular Spider-Man. One of my favourite things that you did on spectacular was introducing some lesser-known villains, such as Colonel, Jupiter and molten man. One of those two villains Molten man was my favourite as a lot of spidey media doesn’t do him justice. If a third season had happened would we have seen more episodes of molten man?

Hello Greg. Big fan of yours
1. If Martian camouflage has nothing to do with light why their shadow vanishes every time they camouflage, shouldn't they still cast a shadow as the light still hits them?
2. With practice could a Martian develop its telekinetic abilities so they could project telekinetic blasts to hit and knock back(or out) and puch away their enemies, as well as telekinetic shields/barriers in order to deflect and protect themselves and other from attacks such as bullets,lasers, etc kinda like the force style
3. I've always thought that Martians camouflage works on the same basis as the comics with a few changes you know "by using their shapshifting abilities to change their biopolymers to reduce their capacity to reflect light they become NEARLY invisible "
Thanks for your time.

Do the scenes in Young Justice Season 4 that involve Ma'alefa'ak/M'comm M'orzz teaches a Moral/Hard Truth Aesop which is the fact that some people/beings won't change no matter how much you try, and sometimes you only see good in people (or non-human beings) because that's what you want to see. Fortunately, Arsenal/Roy Harper was never truly one of the people who are beyond redemption and still had some good in him, unlike M'comm.

I've been rewatching season 3 of Young Justice and had some questions about the meta-gene.
1. Do you have any idea how much of the powers the meta-gene gives are determined by genetics? When Vandal's story is told, many of his children have different powers, so it doesn't appear very genetic. However, everyone with the meta-gene in Brion Markov's family has similar powers from the meta-gene.
2. If the powers from the meta-gene are largely genetic, does that mean that there are different mutated versions of it?

Hello Greg !
Coming here to talk about some subject. I just came back from twitter where you said :''Woke isn't a dirty word to me. I WANT to be more woke. What's the alternative - being asleep? Not seeing people for who they are, but deciding for them instead?''.
I thought maybe I could bring my vision (my YJ fan vision) to your thinking.
I don't even know where to start...First of all, how can you not see the orwellian language behind the word WOKE ? I mean, if a politician calls a repressive law "the liberty law" it doesn't mean that by fighting it you're against liberty, right ? It's-just-a-name ! Who's calling that like that ? Who's saying that this represents tolerance and progress ? I mean, seriously : who is ? The words tolerance and progress were existing already, so why using a new name ? Huh ? It's like creating two political parties, calling them left and right, and saying those two are the only alternatives. Because except left and right there is nothing else, right ? Well, maybe center. But you can see the trick here, don't you ? I'm sad you're falling into this.
Now, when you say elsewhere there are more than 2 genders... Scientifically, there are 2 sexes: male and female. Those are ruled by the sex chromosomes, which are XX in females and XY in males. There can be some special cases that we call "intersex" due to sex chromosomes malfunction. But this represents like 0,1% of the cases. Now what the woke people tell us, is that a man who thinks he's a woman IS actually a woman. This is crazy. They're thinking the psychological factor takes over the genetic factor. This is crazy, wrong and dangerous. A man thinking is a woman is still a man... thinking he's a woman. A man thinking is a dolphin must be considered as a dolphin ? Come on ! This is a psychological issue, who must be dealt with psychiatry and not surgery.
Btw, are you in favor of surgery ? Of mutilating children at a vulnerable age ? Taking advantage of a temporary psychological weakness to do irreversible damage to a child ?
You should read Abigail Shrier's Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters. She tells the story of teenage girls taking hormone replacement therapy and sex reassignment surgery because they "feel" like men. The parents can't do anything under the threat of being called trans-phobic or fascist. Most psychologists are supporting this. How can somebody even tolerate that we use irreversible drugs and medicines on teenagers ?
THIS IDEOLOGY IS ACTUALLY DESTROYING LIVES !!! We stopped counting the number of witnesses saying "they encouraged me to destroy my body, cut off my breast (for instance) and now, I realize I was sick and I don't want to change sex anymore but it's too late, my life is ruined and the woke community (of course) rejected me now, calling me a trans-phobic".
Because this is only a temporary state. The few parents who saved their children from this atrocity did it by cutting all contact with people, social media and so on. After a few months, the child isn't talking even about changing sex anymore.
Please, realize the danger of this. If you wanna be tolerant, great. But woke is something else. Something dangerous. It's important to see it.
I'm not seeking to make you think like me, but only to consider it. I think you're doing something very wrong with YJ, especially when addressing to a young audience.
Have a good day still !

Craig writes...

In the audio podcast for “City of Stone Part Four,” you mention that the Dynamite Gargoyles comics are written to a three-act structure, like a traditional network TV episode (or at least, the first three issues are). I recall you saying that you started writing the SLG comics more in a “TV episode” mindset, but the Stone of Destiny storyline helped you break out of this. Although you did still then use a three-“act” structure in both that storyline and the “Timedancer” one, and have apparently adopted that to the Dynamite comics as well. I’m just curious as to your process, as a fellow writer: do you find the three-act structure most conducive to telling stories in the Gargoyles universe, and is that why you continue to use it?

I have a question regarding Lexington (Nothing against the choice you made for his love life in the comics) but if there’s any other comic stories you write about him I hope you can eventually have him meet a female who has wings just like his and falls in love with him for his smarts. But perhaps Lex is turned off at her at first because he still struggles to trust anybody.

If this does happen then there could even be a spin off of the female mates of the Trio having their own adventure comic series with Elisa. That would be cool to read. But it is your comics. I.m not a judgy type. But I hope you consider this for another comic series with this idea for the future. I am a huge fan of the whole series overall. Brooklyn being my favorite.

Mr. Weisman,

In the epilogue of "Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths" issue #7, the mainstream DC Universe (Earth-0) appears to now have it own version of "The Light," and it is called "The Council of Light." This version of the group appears to be a mysterious alliance of seven unknown power brokers, and their goal is apparently to wipe out ALL metahumans (both good and bad) on Earth because they believe that metahumans are too dangerous to be controlled or imprisoned. Therefore, they are giving Amanda Waller permission to use every resource available to full eradicate all metahumans on Earth. In light of the revelation of "The Council of Light," my question to you is this: Were you ever consulted by DC Comics about this? I mean, did they needed permission from you to be able to introduce their own version of "The Light" into the mainstream DC Universe; since the group originated from the "Young Justice" animated series first?

Sorry if you've had this question before: -

I've noticed that Disney seems to be remaking a lot of shows lately, and it made me wonder... If Disney was to hire you to do a remake of gargoyles set in modern times; what would you do different in it?

The one thing that stands out to me is the City of Stone saga. I enjoyed those eps a lot, but I imagine you would have to change a few things if it happened today. For one thing, not a lot of people watch live TV, so Demona would have to figure out another way to broadcast her spell to the people (maybe internet). Plus I imagine everyone would know what happened to them at night, since there are plenty of CTV cameras, cellphones to catch images, as well as satellite cameras etc.

Hi Greg,

Since GARGOYLES came back, nobody has yet posted a ramble to Ask Greg as far as I can see and I'm not even sure if you're still looking for them - particularly with the queue so long. But hopefully it is, at least, nice to vicariously share someone discovering GARGOYLES #1. (And if not, since we could be years and many rambles hence by the time you get to this one... oops).

So here, adapted from my S8 first impressions, is my ramble...

NIGHTWATCH

Amazon have annoyed me since they took over ComiXology but I can't fault them here. Getting to my local comic shop before they close at 5.30 is tight on a Wednesday but Amazon delivering the book to my account so early is absolutely perfect for me. I can take a moment in the peace to read before the chaos of the day begins. It just makes for such a pleasant experience.

I also find e-comics my favourite way to read. I can zoom in, the backlit screen makes everything look good but George Kambadais' amazing art particularly benefits.

TEENAGE KICKS

What caught my attention on the preview images was the "all-ages" label. I see it's been adjusted to "teen".

I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, I thought what the SLG series did with the little extra leeway was great, especially in the historical scenes.

That said, I was thinking if it was pushing to stay all-ages I might bring some issues into school for my class. I'm glad the rating has been clarified.

(Since writing this, I listened to VOICES FROM THE EYRIE #27 and it sounds like this book won't quite be as edgy as the SLG books so we'll see).

INSIDE COVER

Great stone aesthetic although I miss the punctuation. I guess new-fangled concepts like punctuation doesn't fit the old-school carved-in-stone look.

I've never heard the term "packager" before in comics and I'm grateful to Craig in the Comment Room for filling me in. Nate, from what I can tell, is doing an absolutely bang-up job of promoting the book.

CITY LIGHTS

I'm really in love with George Kambadais' colours. He does brightness so well. The lens flare is a difficult line to tread - one wrong move and he's JJ Abrams. But he manages it. Dark Age Scotland is given a genuinely fresh perspective with that bright sun on the sea and New York looks glorious. And he is master of the speed line.

The gargoyles all look themselves and yet also there's a real flair to the style. He's just such a great choice to make the book feel completely different and yet still quality.

(Which doesn't mean I still don't want to see the legends Christopher Jones, Karine Charlebois and Greg Guler back in the fold when the opportunity presents. Let's hope those spin-offs awaken as well...)

MOONLIGHTING

Of course it's a full moon. But since this is Gargoyles, it's also probably a trail of breadcrumbs to the actual date - or would be if we could pinpoint how far along Maggie was in "Clan-Building". Based on the moon calendar, my guesses were 20 April or 22 May.

Although I'm really curious to see those initial conversations with Brooklyn immediately post-dance and I kind of hope that one day we revisit that day, I do like that we've had a modest time jump. Small enough that it doesn't feel like we're catching up with radically different people which sometimes I feel can be the risk of a time jump - that you're arbitrarily distanced from the characters and have to rediscover them. But large enough that it feels like a great jump-on point.

DETECTIVE'S PERSONAL LOG

I absolutely love the choice to use Elisa as the POV character. Not only is it brilliant hearing the classic narration in Salli Richardson's voice (okay, only in my head, but still), but it feels fresh and yet also like such low-hanging fruit as the human lead is usually the access point to these kinds of shows - April discovering the turtles or the companion discovering the Doctor. In retrospect, 'Gargoyles' really stood apart in this sense -- it was always the story of the gargoyles and Elisa was, initially at least, just another threat to them. That worked brilliantly for the animated series but it makes this flip feel fresh and yet accessible in the best way.

Another VOICES revelation is that there will be different narrators for the next quite-a-few issues. Will be interesting.

TITLE TALK

Okay, a confession. I LOVE the original show's way of presenting titles. There's something about the font, the colour (including the "Hunter's Moon" variants), the use of capitals and inverted commas that's kind of ingrained in me - I just think the show had the best-looking titles in town. But I appreciate there's no sensible reason to resurrect them and frankly this feels much more fresh and modern and, as titles should be, low key. Also, some of the "Clan-Building" titles had an odd distortion where it looks like the aspect ratio had gone skew-whiff. This looks crisp and great.

There's no secret about Greg's penchant for one-word titles (in which I'm including where the only other word is "the").

At a very (very) quick tot counting chapter titles and books:
Season 1 was 40% one-worders
Season 2 was 64% one-worders
Season 3 85% one-worders

In Season 4, so far: 0% one-worders. What's happened to Greg?! (I love "Here in Manhattan" as a title mind you).

LETTER OF THE LORE

Shout out to Jeff Eckleberry. Lettering is thankless if you do it right and disastrous if it goes wrong. There were a couple of times on the SLG book where it stood out for the wrong reasons (at least in my printings). This issue is perfect -- even though there are a few tricky things to pull off like the Eyrie building panel with two different narrators. And I'm not sure outline-less captions always work for me as a general rule but it suits the art in this issue really well. Superb job.

GNASH

If it's been months I kinda feel bad for Gnash if people are misnaming him. Perhaps his parents prefer Nashville (sentimental reasons?). You'd think Lex would have learned after the Angie thing and a few months is plenty of time for him to get used to a new name. Neither of them look happy at being left by Broadway and Brooklyn.

Lots of subtle revelations here. Gnash has seemingly spent a fair bit of time recently in the UK - or around people who use that slang. Or perhaps just around people who like the sixth 'Harry Potter'. And we have confirmation (I'm not sure it was in "Clan-Building" that Katana is from feudal Japan). I love the "don't ask".

SISTER ACT

It's interesting that Elisa considers them sisters since she is effectively Angela's step-mother. And to be honest, even on the World Tour, I kind of looked at them more of a family unit. Of course, Elisa's a relatively young woman so she's not going to think of herself as a mother figure to an adult conceived a thousand years plus years ago. But I wonder if Angela would see it the same way.

SPINNING PLATES

Owen is just kinda standing there. It's great to see him but he's literally just holding an empty plate and staring. I feel like I'm missing something really obvious...? (It's later been clarified by more eagle-eyed Phoenician in the S8 CR).

THUG LIFE

Great to see Glasses and Jack Dane. Good thing I rewatched "Turf" recently for the first time in years as I forgot Jack Dane had partnered with Brod.

"We made them share a cell because we thought it'd be funny" - does Elisa have any control over prisoner placement?

YOU WERE ONLY MEANT TO BLOW THE BLOODY DOORS OFF

Apparently the book was too exciting because the middle pages of the comic fell out of their staples as soon as I got there. A bit disappointing - I've never had that happen with a new comic before and if it were my first read-through I'd be a bit more taken out of it.

Since then, someone else in the room has reported an issue with the Nakayama copy and the stapling. However, I bought a second Nakayama copy and the inside pages are fine, and the other copies I have are fine too.

The covers are incredible. In any other situation, I'd feel this kind of thing is a bit of a rip-off but in the case of 'Gargoyles' where the breadth of fan interest has, historically, not always been there but the depth certainly has, giving fans a value reason to buy multiple copies just makes sense. I'm not able to support (or frankly, even locate) all of these but my favourite is George Kambadais'. I do like it when there's cohesion between the cover art and the interiors but also it's just a great image. However, the Nakayama and Fleeks variants are runners-up.

STONE COLD

I wasn't sure how Coldstone and Coldfire would go down as we've really seen very little of them as characters outside their Othello/Desdemona/Iago plotline. I like how Coldstone is willing to advocate the "wrong" (or at least the selfish) choice. And Coldfire is more sympathetic but as far as I can tell is responsible for the fire and thus potentially the civilian casualty (who we've since realised is our beloved Jogger - and Todd ID'd the paramedics as from "Deadly Force" which is the deepest of deep cuts. Anyway, it makes me concerned whether or not the Coldduo are really cut out for the kind of work the gargoyles do. Hmm.

I think Coldstone will be proved right though: there is a problem if the gargoyles are only seen by the "bad guys" and don't have any wider representation. I wonder where this will go and I feel like this could have a bigger resonance across the "Here in Manhattan" arc.

BACK TO THE BACKSTORY

I love the way the recap narration here keeps us in the action. This was one of the things that jangled me a bit with previous recaps in Clan-Building #1, #3 and back in the original show in episodes like "Outfoxed" and "The Cage". In "Nightwatch" especially it felt like Goliath telling Elisa something she already knew so the audience could listen in. This feels so much more elegant.

Plus, it's just never as exciting seeing something the second time around. There's no need here to see a Sevarius flashback for the purposes of this issue so we get to see Brendan and Margot instead because... well, of course we do! (Seriously, I got so distracted by the pair of them I missed that this sequence was about the drain at first).

And more cameos - love seeing Erin, Benny and Thug in colour! And always great to see Shari back. (It must be a little weird for the real Erin and Benny that their 'mutate selves' are still, give or take, the same age as they were when they first 'debuted').

QUIET PLEASE FOR THE MAIN EVENT

One of the clever by-products of Elisa narrating the story is that the tone shifts when it goes "quiet" and we're not in her head. Thailog doesn't need an introduction or a name - he's totally the bad guy. And yet the re-use of the close-up mouth angle just emphasises he's a clone.

Thailog's final lines are pretty chilling but I wonder if there's something else happening. I just can't imagine Thailog taking to the languid pace of raising a child. Surely the accelerated pace of clone ageing is more his speed? Yes, a child born to mutates is significant, but he has the mutates' designer almost literally on his right hand. Is it just the link to Elisa that makes him want this specific child? Or is this a distraction? What a bastard.

CLIFF-LOUNGING

No mega cliffhanger for this one - not on the final page anyway. That's fine. I really love how this is kind of a chill issue, just surveying the lay of the land.

9.09% BIGGER!

I admit, I never expected this one to be 24 pages, even though the SLG books were. 22 or even 20 seems to have been such a standard for a long time (admittedly I don't currently read any other comics regularly). I am, of course, delighted.

All told -- I love it. Yes, it's very heavy on introductions but it never feels clogged with it. Everything moves along at a nice pace, we get to see where the clan and key allies are at this point in their lives. Everything feels fresh and modern and accessible. The art is amazing. The dialogue is great.

It pulls off the incredible feat of both feeling like the original series while also feeling like a modern regeneration of it. Just stunning.

Thank you to everyone involved, congratulations Greg and fingers crossed that this is the start of a truly epic reawakening.
