Gargoyles: Bad Guys is a six-part miniseries by Slave Labor Graphics written by Greg Weisman and illustrated by Karine Charlebois. Covers are by original Gargoyles lead character designer Greg Guler.


It features five of the toughest villains in the Gargoyles Universe: Hunter – member of a Scottish family of gargoyle-slayers; DingoAustralian mercenary and charter member of the deadly Pack; Matrix – a nanotech hive-mind artificial intelligence that came very close to destroying the Earth; Yama – a Japanese gargoyle who betrayed his own clan, and Fang – the mutate who would be king. This quintet of felons is forced to work on the side of the angels.


The series follows the exploits of a group of "semi-reformed" former villains from the first two seasons of Gargoyles, called the Redemption Squad. The squad is led by Robyn Canmore (under the codename Hunter), and also includes Dingo, Matrix, Yama, and Fang. These individuals were recruited by a mysterious personage known only as the Director to run missions for him, and were chosen because, as "bad guys," they are expendable. In the course of the Squad's Dirty Dozen-inspired adventures, they will encounter many familiar figures from Gargoyles, such as the terrorists from "City of Stone Part One" (in the course of which we will learn what their cause was), the Pack, Castaway and the Quarrymen, and even Goliath's clan. An antagonist named Falstaff will also appear. The Director will be using the Redemption Squad in part as a means of battling the Illuminati. Character-based complications along the way will include Dingo and Robyn developing a stormy relationship, and Yama and Fang taking a strong dislike to each other. As the series continued, other characters would come and go as new members of the Squad.


Production History

Gargoyles: Bad Guys was one of six proposed Gargoyles spin-offs. Of the six, it came closest to being created in animated form (under the title Bad Guys). A Leica reel for the series was produced, which is shown exclusively at the Gathering of the Gargoyles convention (though elements of it have appeared in the opening pages of issues 1 through 6 of the comic book).
