Gargoyles #1

Narrated by NYPD Detective Elisa Maza, the first issue of Dynamite Entertainment's new Gargoyles title introduces readers to the main characters from the show including Elisa's boyfriend who is the leader of a group of cursed Gargoyles who only awake and night and help Elisa keep the city safe. 

Quickly getting readers up-to-date with a show that ran for 78 episodes nearly 30 years ago is no easy task, but Elisa's narration works well with short introductions of the show's mythology, quick intros for the main characters, and cluing us in to major events such as the gang war that is brewing in New York since the Gargoyles helped put both local crime bosses behind bars, all while hopefully not boring longtime fans. As the issue concludes we also learn Maggie is going into labor to deliver a child several characters have a keen interest in, leading into next month's issue.
