ANTHONY> Handy link here...



If you have twitter, @Aaron_Sparrow, of Joe Books, has a poll asking which Disney property you'd like to see return to comics. The choices are Talespin, C&D Rescue Rangers, Gargoyles, and Kim Possible. Gargoyles is currently in the lead with 54%, but if you can, I would go vote and retweet. Thanks!

There'll probably be a few minor changes in the comics, however, simply because of the difference in medium - things that work in animation may not work quite the same way on the page of a comic book. Though the "art" being evidently stills from the series will probably keep the changes from being that large.

Hufflepuffs are really good finders

to be honest... I am actually kinda surprised by that fact...

According to this comic sales have been climbing and climbing with no signs of slowing down, each year beats the last's record. This seems like a no-brainer to me because of all the movies based on comic franchises clearing away the prejudice of them being a low-brow form of media and enticing viewers to read up on the characters they like on screen.

Does anyone have any kind of information about how many units recent comics do sell actually? Last time I saw some sales numbers I was actually shocked on how low they were...

I'd say that the way Thailog stabbed Goliath in "Clan Building" is more graphic than anything that happened in "Deadly Force," so they're probably not going to censor it.

NinjaSheik> Comics generally don't have to deal with the same S&P issues most kids tv does, especially since the Comic Code Authority became defunct.

See: Angela calling Thailog a [SPOILER] Bastard [/SPOILER] in the SLG series.



Thank you, Mr. Weisman, for answering my question.

I do hope this'll help revive the series and recruit more fans, though I'm still kind of worried. As a side note, if Volume 2 of the comics goes up to "Enter MacBeth", then that means "Deadly Force" will be in the comics, too. I wonder if the comics is going to censor it like it did for the episode.



"Cinestory" comics of a show I already own don't really interest me, but I'm sure I'll buy a copy anyway, if only to support the brand. However, I trust that you'll do what you can to keep it lively, Greg.

I'm really a lurker, but I just wanted to say I'm really looking forward to the comics and the chance to recruit new fans with them! Thanks for keeping us informed, Greg!

Fifth in the name of...uh...well I can't think of anything right now. But anyway, hello Greg and a happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day everyone.

Fourth in the name of Khorne, Tzeentch, Nurgle and Slaanesh!

The Holy Britannian Empire, the European Union, and the Chinese Federation!

Greg: That's certainly a gratifying piece of news. Best of luck on that front, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it shakes out!

Also, once again, thanks for the kind words you gave last week to my CONvergence 2014 report and my Spirits review. After all this time, I'd glad that you got some enjoyment out of my mad, mad ramblings. :D

A happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to everybody state-side :)

And exciting news, GregW -- any word yet on how many volumes we'll be getting?

First, I think.

For the record, I am supervising the Cinestory volumes and trying to make sure they are as good as they possibly can be. Doing screen-cap comics may not be ideal, but I'm proud of the results in this case.
