Clan Building Chapter Four: Masque is the fourth issue of Slave Labor Graphics' series, Gargoyles.


On Halloween, Hudson doles out candy to trick or treaters, while he and Bronx are visiting Jeffrey Robbins. When Robbins overhears Susan tell Hudson he has a nice mask, he confronts Hudson about his true nature. Meanwhile at Castle Wyvern, the Halloween Masque is in full swing.

Elisa introduces Morgan to Angela, Lexington and Broadway. Angela pulls Elisa aside, and yells at her for bringing a date to the party. Elisa and Morgan see Goliath and Delilah speaking to Ian Roebling, who walks off after an awkward exchange. Delilah and Elisa meet, and Morgan introduces himself to Goliath and Delilah. Each pair splits up, and Elisa excuses herself from Morgan's company. She goes outside, where Goliath talks to her.

In the Labyrinth, the Clones quickly succumb to Thailog's will. Thailog nearly crushes Maggie the Cat beneath rubble. Thailog and the clones leave for the Halloween Masque to reclaim Delilah. Talon refuses to leave Maggie in her condition, and Claw cannot speak, so Al's friend volunteers to alert Goliath.

Thailog and his reclaimed cronies arrive at Castle Wyvern, where they see Elisa refuse to accept Goliath. Owen Burnett takes away Thailog's guns, and offers to send Delilah to meet him. Goliath, enraged, objects until Owen explains that free will means she should decide for herself. Thailog, while taunting Goliath, procures a blade from a contraption on his wrist, and stabs him in the stomach.



  • mBroadway and Angela attend the masquerade party as the Cowardly Lion and Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. Officer Morgan comes as Sherlock Holmes, and Elisa continues her habit (begun in "Eye of the Beholder") of going as a Disney princess by dressing up as Jasmine from Aladdin.
