Top 10: Figures for NECA’s Gargoyles by Jerry Whitworth
With the surprise announcement of NECA obtaining the Gargoyles license and the release of images of the forthcoming Goliath action figure, social media melted down. The cult favorite animated series from the 1990s, rallies have ridden like waves for Gargoyles to continue. In recent memory, hope sprung from campaigns to stream the series on Disney+ to show interest in the brand and from director Jordan Peele allegedly pursuing a feature film adapting it. Pre-orders have already begun for Goliath as five action figure sculpts are completed and more are in development. With a figure planned to be revealed every month, lets take a look at what could be coming down the line.

Nostalgia is a powerful force and with the kids of the 1980s, arguably the most creative decade in modern history, hitting middle age, the time is ripe to mine those happy memories. While reboots are nothing new, sequels to pre-existing television series have exploded in recent history. Akira Toriyama returned to his hit Dragon Ball with Dragon Ball Super, Young Justice was revived for the DC Universe streaming service (and now HBO Max), Rocko’s Modern Life developed Static Cling and Invader Zim returned to Enter the Florpus in 2019 for Netflix, Animaniacs added more baloney to their slacks on Hulu, Masters of the Universe: Revelation will continue the story started by Filmation for Netflix, Disney+ will make the Proud Family: Louder and Prouder, Tiny Toons is going back to school for HBO Max‘s Looniversity, and the rumor mill has X-Men: The Animated Series and Batman: The Animated Series returning. Lets take a look at what other cartoons could be getting a sequel in the future.
Top 10: Most Popular Articles at CAC by Jerry Whitworth
Hello Nerdfect Nation, this is your intrepid co-host Jerry Whitworth back with a new article. Its been a while, I know, but there’s been an important development in my life. As many of our listeners know, I’ve worked for ComicArtCommunity.com for five years but, sadly, we’ve recently parted company. No hard feelings, they’re still a great site and resource but it was time to move on. At this time, I don’t know where I’ll end up, but for now, I thought it would be fun for a small retrospective. I’ve produced 267 articles for CAC (not including the biography I wrote for the Al Rio Tribute Art Book Volume One), which is roughly on average an article a week for my time there, and certain pieces of work stand out from the rest. Thus, I will produce two Top 10 lists: first, my most popular articles and second, my favorite. Based on the number of views and unique visits, the following are the ten most popular articles I have written for CAC. Enjoy.
