Gargoyles

Gargoyles ran for three seasons (78 episodes) between 1994 and 1997. It is noted for its dark tone, complex story arcs, and melodrama;character arcs were heavily employed throughout the series, as were Shakespearean themes.

Its video game adaptation and a spin-off comic series were released in 1995. The show’s storyline continued from 2006–2009 in a comic book series of the same title produced by Slave Labor Graphics.

This clan of gargoyles were led by Goliath. In the year 994, the clan lives in a castle in medieval Scotland alongside humans, until many of them are killed by betrayal and the remainder are magically frozen in stone until the castle “rises above the clouds.”

A millennium later, in 1994, billionaire David Xanatos purchases the gargoyles’ castle and has it reconstructed atop his New York City skyscraper, awakening the six remaining gargoyles. In trying to adjust to their new world, they are aided by a sympathetic NYPDdetective, Elisa Maza, and quickly come into conflict with the plotting Xanatos. In addition to dealing with the gargoyles’ attempts to adjust to modern New York, the series also incorporated various supernatural threats to their safety and to the world at large.
