Dynamite Entertainment is a publishing company that currently holds the license to the Disney properties Gargoyles and Darkwing Duck. [1]

On July 22, 2022, Dynamite announced that a "new season" of comics written by Greg Weisman would be released by the fourth quarter of 2022. [2] On the Voices from the Eyrie podcast, Greg Weisman provided more detail that these new canonical stories have been greenlit for an initial order of a six-issue miniseries, but that the hope is the series "jumps up to twelve or more". [3] The first issue was released on December 7th, 2022.

On April 20, 2023, the first issue of Gargoyles: Dark Ages miniseries was announced for release on July 5th, 2023. The story begins in 971, twenty-three years before the Wyvern Massacre. Each issue will also feature four pages of bonus content in the form of "complementary prose storytelling by Weisman with spot illustrations". [4]

In addition to new stories, Dynamite plans on rereleasing facsimile copies of issues and trade paperbacks from the 1995 Marvel Comics run. [5] They also plan on reprinting the canonical SLG Comics from 2006-2009. [6]

In June 2023, Greg Weisman hinted at writing another Gargoyles-related script for Dynamite that is "neither for the main book or Dark Ages". [7] This appears to be the Gargoyles: Halloween Special. The following month Weisman also indicated that unless "something catastrophic" happen in terms of sales, it is likely that the current Dynamite run will exceed the eighteen issues that were published when SLG has the license.
