Mythical. Fun. And On The Run.
Twilight Detective Agency: Girls Out tells the story of Veronica and Maeve, two gargoyles who grew up in a xenophobic, insular society of gargoyles living inside a mountain in the Czech Republic, cowering in fear of discovery by the mages who created their race.
Together the two flee around the world, pursued by various factions and hoping to free their people!
About the Comic
Twilight Detective Agency: Girls Out is a sister comic to Twilight Detective Agency, taking place simultaneously and sharing supporting characters with the other title. However, TDA:GO is the only Twogargs title (so far!) not to be written by Michael McAdam–it’s written and drawn by Twogargs collaborator Mike Rieger, who wanted to create a female-led series for the Two Gargoyles pantheon.
Every issue of the series is named after a song on Veronica’s playlist.

Veronica, the older of the two, has never fit in to gargoyle society, and started to act upon her dreams of the outside world as soon as she reached adulthood. Rather than completely leave her home, however, she decided to have her cake and eat it too: living amongst the other gargoyles by day, and sneaking out at night to explore the nearby city of Prague in her endless pursuit of experience, even eventually picking up Czech as a second language. (The other gargoyles speak English, the language of their creators.)
Veronica has a deep love of pop culture, often quoting human television and movies. Mysteriously, she also has a human digital identity, including a false driver’s license, passport, and credit card.
Veronica is street-smart, but is reckless to the point of foolhardiness, having rejected the idea of living in fear to such an extent that she’s often dismissive of all personal risk or consequence.
Maeve, the younger gargoyle, fit in perfectly with gargoyle society. She was content to think of herself as a cog in the machine, working together with her brothers and sisters for the good of all.
Maeve’s only problem was Veronica, her wild-child best friend who refused to integrate into society, and refused to recognize the danger she posed to herself–and then one day, when Maeve’s worst fear came true, she was forced to make a choice: remain in the only life she’d ever known, or follow her friend into the unknown outside world.
