And so I come to you all with a blatant and shameless plug to buy the DVD. Doesn’t have to be for yourself. Could be for your cousin or nephew or daughter or whomever. The better the sales on this thing the better chance at Disney releasing volume 2 (and with more features like director/producer commentary stuff).
If you’ve already bought a copy, I sincerely thank you. If you haven’t and can’t or won’t, that’s okay too. But maybe you could spread the word a bit. Maybe a shout out on a blog or your own website. Every little bit helps.
Also related to Gargoyles is the upcoming Gargoyles comic. An article on the comic along with some previews can be found over at Comic Book Resources. Pencils are by Slave Labor Graphics artist Dave Hedgecock and rumor has it the coloring is being done by an old friend of mine which is very exciting.
And one last bit for those of you who do have a fondness for this show, the annual Gathering (a convention for fans of the show) will be held this June in Los Angeles. A ton of people who worked on the show will be there as guests, including several of the voice actors. I’m especially excited that Ed Asner, voice of Hudson, will be there. It’s a really great con too in that it’s a lot more intimate than other cons like the SD ComiCon. I think it’s quite a unique experience and worth making the trip (if you can afford it). I do plan to be there and there may even be a panel on fan website which I’d be involved with. Although I doubt there’d be much discussion on CSS or HTML document structure theory (which I think is a topic/field I’ve made up, but oh well). But who knows.
So buy the DVD. Check out the con (especially if you live around LA) and have fun!
( and i hope to finish up work on the dropdown menu system soon. real world work has me very busy for the next couple weeks and I may not have a lot of time. at which point i’ll incorporate it into Tank! and release Tank! in ZIP. )
