Gargoyles was a series of comics published by Marvel Comics, based on the animated series of the same name. It ran for 11 issues from December 1994 to October 1995. The books referenced events from the show's first season, but did not follow the continuity of the series and is not considered canon by creator Greg Weisman.

The Marvel series was tonally darker than the television series, dealing largely with Xanatos' experiments to create creatures and machines to defeat the Gargoyles. Although Greg Weisman did not have any direct involvement in the story development of the comic series, he was consulted on some plot points to be sure it stayed within certain boundaries.

Weisman was eventually hired to write for the comic, but Marvel cut the deal with Disney before his run could be produced. Weisman still held on to his unpublished script for the comic, and would eventually use it as issue #6 of the Gargoyles SLG comic.

The characters Beth Maza (who appeared in a photo in "Deadly Force") and Petros Xanatos appeared in the comics before their full debut on the show.
