Wer die Serie mochte kommt hier nicht drumherum und wer Fan ist weiß, dass die Comics im Gegensatz zur kurzen qualitativ niedrigen dritten TV-Staffel sich an den Story-Masterplan von Greg Weisman halten (die Comics entstanden ja auch unter seiner Regie). Schade dass es davon nicht noch mehr gibt.

Die Qualität der Seiten machen einen sehr guten Eindruck und die Comics sind sehr gut gezeichnet. Ein Buch fast mehrere Episoden/Hefte zusammen, die vorher mal einzeln erschienen sind. Die Episoden von mehreren Zeichnern erstellt worden. Daher findet man auch verschiedene Zeichenstile. Bis auf ein oder zwei Stile sagen mir alle sehr zu und die Coloration muss sich bei Leibe nicht verstecken. Allerdings bin ich kein Fachmann, was wertige Hochglanz-Comics angeht.

Dieser zweite Band ist eine inhaltlich würdige Fortsetzung des ersten Bandes: Die Handlung ist sehr spannend und originell und die Zeichnungen sind aufwändig und detailliert, zudem ist die verwendete englische Sprache gut zu verstehen.

A New Beginning for Gargoyles 13. August 2009
Von Landon Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book contains the final two story arcs for the Clan Building storyline. In the first story Macbeth, Lexington, and Hudson travel to London to protect an artifact of mythical and historical proportions. In the second story, Brooklyn is forced back in time 1,000 years to help protect a spellbook from the clutches of evil.

I love this book. It's a fantastic continuation of Gargoyles and a rousing story that isn't afraid to shake things up. The real brilliance of Gargoyles is its connections to mythology and history. You meet scads of new characters from the Illuminati, the London gargoyle clan, and Scottish history and lore. Every major character changes and develops, every story arc builds upon the past and links to the future, and every event feels intricately connected to the expanding storyline. The art is colorful and the action is exciting and well-drawn. The drama is unmatched for this genre. Even after everything changes, you feel like they're just getting started. I can't rate it highly enough.

This trade paperback collects issues #7-12 of SLG Publishing's Gargoyles comic series. Issues #9-12 were never published and are only available in this book. This and Clan Building volume 1 comprise the new season 3 storyline for Disney's Gargoyles animated series from the mid-nineties (replacing the Goliath Chronicles storyline).

Well worth the wait! 31. August 2009
Von Rebel L. Fornea - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Gargoyles: Clan Building Volume 2 contains two all-new, CANON Gargoyles storylines from series creator Greg Weisman. If you liked Gargoyles when it was a TV show and wish they would make new episodes, then look no further! The stories in the Gargoyles trade paperbacks are what would happen if new episodes of Gargoyles were made for television.

The first arc in this book (issues 7-9) tells the story of the Stone of Destiny. Lexington, Hudson, and Macbeth travel to London to protect the stone from anyone who might try to steal it while it is being transported back to Scotland. The backstory of the Stone of Destiny is revealed to readers by Thailog and Shari. This story features an epic sky-flying battle, new gargoyle characters, an expansive story of the Stone's history, and the first team-up of Macbeth and King Arthur.

The second arc tells the story of Brooklyn's first timedancing adventure. While on patrol with Broadway and Angela, the phoenix gate suddenly appears. Knowing how dangerous it can be, Brooklyn decides to take it back to the castle and Goliath where it can't fall into the wrong hands. But the moment he touches it, the Phoenix Gate crumbles and a fiery Phoenix emerges, and whisks Brooklyn away. He arrives in Scotland, 1,000 years ago, and must help defeat the tyrant Constantine.

This book is fantastic. The art in issues 10-12 is particularly beautiful. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Gargoyles.

An Exciting Conclusion For A New Beginning 31. August 2009
Von Litwolf - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
There's trouble in Scotland - both past and present!

In 1996, the Stone of Destiny is on the move back to its home country. MacBeth asks the Clan to guard the stone during its dangerous trip. When enemies threaten the Stone, can Hudson and Lex protect it, even with allies new and old?

In 997, Brooklyn has been transported back in time thanks to the Phoenix Gate. He finds a battle brewing and the guardians of the Grimorum in danger. Can he protect them? And will he ever find a way home?

I have been waiting for this book for a year and it was well-worth the wait. Beautiful artwork and fantastic stories blend perfectly in this graphic novel. The stories leave me hungry for more adventures of the Manhattan Clan. If you were a fan of the Gargoyles TV show, this is the true season three that has at long last been revealed to the world.

"It's about clan and castle ... It's about finally coming home" 12. September 2009
Von Michael Seahorn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Almost 17 months after the most recent single issue was published, nearly two years since the first trade paperback was released, and over three years after the comic series first came to fruition can "Gargoyles" fans finally know the conclusion of the "Clan-Building" arc. The fact that Slave Labor Graphics and writer/creator Greg Weisman have had to toil this long to release twelve comic books says a lot about their unwavering commitment to a story now spanning fifteen years in the telling, the hardships involved in continuing the franchise, and the reluctance of Disney to support one of its best creations; but what matters more is that it's been worth waiting for. It's a sad situation that it could be a long time before we see the Gargoyles produced again in any format (thanks to the indefinite grounding the comics), but for now, it's awesome to have "Clan-Building, Volume Two" in my collection.

The compilation includes issues #7-12, which are evenly divided between the "Rock of Ages" and "Timedancer" storylines. The former focuses on Hudson and Lexington traveling to London alongside Macbeth to protect the mythic "Stone of Destiny" on its way to Scotland; whilst over there, they meet up with Sir Griff and the London Clan and a returning Coldstone and Coldfire, all of whom will be needed to repel an attack by Coldsteel, Coyote, and the Steel Clan. "Timedancer" chronicles the first of reportedly many adventures Brooklyn had after being pulled through time by the Phoenix Gate; this specific one sends him back to tenth century Scotland, post-Wyvern, where he will play a part in the clash between King Constantine III and Kenneth the Grim.

Satisfyingly, this collection fixes the imperfections of the first compilation and largely avoids the mistakes its predecessor made. Staple characters who had little action in or were sorely missing from issues #1-6 - like Coldsteel, King Arthur, Coyote, Princess Finella and Tom's mother, Gillecomgain, and (yes!) Demona - finally get some pagetime and make the most of it, contributing to the story appropriately and interacting well with the newer faces. It's also nice to see Lex, Hudson, and Brooklyn get starring roles; we really don't see enough stories centered on them. The storytelling itself is at its most intricate: you definitely won't get the gist of everything going on by just looking at the illustrations. However, while the writing generally continues the high standard set by the animated series, issues #7-9 feature Weisman experimenting with an odd narrative technique in which the story is constantly jumping between times and dates; I am clueless why it was written this way, since all it did was confuse me and necessitated a lot of page-flipping to compare dates, but luckily it's not too debilitating and is dropped as soon as "Timedancer" comes around.

The artwork is fantastic. David Hedgecock (who drew the three original issues) returns and masters his design for issues #7-9, but he's matched Greg Gruler (#10), David Hutchinson (#11, which includes an awesome two-page shot of Demona's clan bearing down on a heated medieval battle), and Ben Dunn (#12), all of whom put a nice touch to Brooklyn's story without compromising what most fans would probably regard as the "classic" design. Admittedly, at first I was a bit dissatisfied with Dunn's work in the final issue, seeing as he has the most "realistic" of all the drawing styles and makes Brooklyn seem a lot less handsome than he's usually depicted, but I quickly came to realize that the style is perfect for the most violent issue of the collection, so it eventually became complimentary to the story rather than derogatory and wonky, as was the case with Nir Paniry illustrating issue #4.

The issues are also full of fun little character interactions and tidbits: Lex and Hudson experiencing jetlag, Brooklyn explaining the definition of "bro" to one of Demona's brethren, Coldsteel attempting to talk free will into Coyote... These aren't major plot points, but nevertheless keep things interesting and made me smile while reading.

If there is anything to criticize about the book, it'd probably be what some readers have described as the fanfiction-y bits of the story. Personally, I think this is a load of bull for the most part, but if you had any problem with, say, Broadway reading Shakespeare or Eliza sharing a smooch with Goliath in previous issues, beware! - because not only do they do these things again, but there are hints (only hints, mind you) that Lexington may be getting the hots for a fellow guy-goyle from the London clan, and Brooklyn...well, I don't want to spoil anything, but the last two pages drop a lot on the reader about what happened during his forty-year travels. Let's just say he stopped being mopey about being single.

Regardless of all qualms, I consider this the superior Gargoyles comic collection for encompassing nearly all aspects that made the show great while still finding new ways to advance the story. I'll say it again: "Clan-Building, Volume Two" has been worth the wait, and ought to be in the collection of every fan, new and old. Don't let the goofy cover discourage you.

Fresh from reading Clan Building Volume One, I have to say that is literally as good as watching the show, minus the chill causing music. I remember the first time I put the DVDs into my DVD player after I first bought them less than three years ago. The instant I heard the music it sent chills down my spine. As for Clan Building, the first volume takes a somewhat alternate spin from the events where events left off between the end of Season Two and the start of Season Three.

I wouldn't say Season Three was down right unlikeable, but it just felt like a drop off from one of the longest seasons of animated history that I have seen. Volume One builds off from moments like the kiss in the final moments of Hunters' Moon. The path of the Quarrymen, the fate of the clones, more on the Illuminati, and many more secondary/peripheral characters. This is where it does the series justice and volume two continues that trend by going.

Going back to the historical origins of Gargoyles by having Brooklyn play a pivotal role in ensuring that the Manhattan Clan will awaken while keeping the Stone of Destiny out of the wrong hands. The history of the Stone is told through Thailog's lovely female Illuminatus associate who strangely or maybe not so strangely ends each tale with a variation of the Weird Sisters' phrase all things are true.
