* SLG Publishing has announced that the 10,000-copy first printing of Gargoyles #1, one of four properties published under SLG's Disney licensing agreement, had all but sold out. "We are going to be shipping our last copies to Diamond immediately, but sadly there will not be enough to satisfy all of the reorders being placed," said SLG Publishing president Dan Vado.
