Cursed to turn into a gargoyle every night, Gary Doyle fights creepy-crawly demons, all the while determined not to let these battles turn him into a monster. Monster-punching urban fantasy with heart—a comic that’s like Hellboy on Yancy Street! For fans of Do a Powerbomb, Firepower, Werewolf By Night!
Summaries Rise of the Serpent King Afflicted by a curse that turns him into a stone gargoyle every night, Gary Doyle has been passing the time punching out creepy-crawly underworld demons and trying to figure out how to undo the curse. When a raging demigod bent on annihilation begins rampaging through the city, Doyle, coached by the mysterious gypsy, Drina, and assisted by the equally enchanting archaeologist, Chloe Anders, must decide whether he’s a hero or the monster the world sees him as. Gargoyles Don't Cry A seedy dealmaker promises to free the Gargoyle from his nightly curse. All our hero has to do is deliver a bag. Too easy? Yeah, that's what he thinks too. Find out what happens when Gargoyle By Moonlight tangles with supernatural gangs and the all-new creepy-crawly overlord of the underworld. Don't miss this fun yet poignant turning point, as Gargoyle battles the evil forces of the city while trying to maintain/regain his humanity and save one very special prize.
Creative team: Timothy Bach, writer; Brian Atkins, artist; Juan Romera, color art; Jeremiah Lambert, inks; Marco Della Verde, letters; and Joshua Jensen, colors on Cover C.
