About the Author
In 1977, a deeply personal project called ELFQUEST was born. As the first continuing fantasy/adventure graphic novel series in America to be co-created, written and illustrated by a woman, ELFQUEST became a phenomenon in the comics industry. Appealing to comics and sci-fi/fantasy fans alike, it attracted a unique and unprecedented audience, an equal mix of male and female readers. Over three million copies of the collected graphic novel volumes have been sold to date. In 2014 Dark Horse Comics will begin publishing Elfquest: The Final Quest in comic book format. The author lives in Los Angeles, CA..

A note, though: The copy I got, page 405 is a duplicate of page 371, and we're missing the page that goes there entirely--if I recall correctly, actually, we may be missing two pages. I can't remember if Aroree's "Are you wise about the sky?" and Skywise's response ended that page, or if the following panel ("This is NOT what I had in mind!") was on the same page. Either way, we're missing at least one full page. Printing errors happen, I understand, but...I'm a little miffed about it.
This wasn't just a book. It was old friends sitting around a campfire, sharing the stories of their lives with me. It was falling in love again the Wolfriders. Cutter and his dearest friend Skywise. Redlance and Nightfall. One-Eye and Clearbrook. Strongbow and Moonshade. Leetah. Rayek. The malevolent Winnowill. Kahvi of the Go-Backs. If ever a book contained magic, Elfquest was it.
Sorry Twilight, but this woman runs with the REAL wolves!
I have the original WaRP Graphics issues from my junior high school days and they reside pride of place upon my bookshelves. To own this huge (and very heavy at over 700 pages) tome is yummy icing on a maple-bacon cupcake.
Sorry Kindle, but an ereader cannot do this amazing collection proper justice. I have the physical book. This is a keeper.
As much as I love Cutter, the sometimes hot-headed (and very young, for elves that is) chief of the Wolfriders and his lifemate Leetah, healer of the Sun Folk (they were the first interracial couple I'd ever seen in a book. Cutter was blonde and fair and Leetah was brown-skinned--to a nerdy junior high school girl, seeing brown-skinned elves was a revelation), my all-time favourite couple has always been Redlance, the gentle tree-shaper and his lifemate Nightfall, the fearless huntress. I think it was Redlance who fostered my love for the beta male character, and it would serve many romance authors well to study how Wendy and Richard Pini created a beta male hero that didn't come off as stereotypically weak or emasculated. In fact, Redlance and Nightfall's relationship was that perfect trifecta of love, respect and trust.Read more ›
I guess this is a big deal to me because I've purchased this story in the original huge B&W form, Starblaze edition, again in Marvel comics (with new art), again as another graphic novel format, and once again in their DC hardback format. Oh and again in their B&W manga format.
My kids loved me reading these stories to them. They are grown up now and these were gifts. The print problem just bites.
EQ is a story I grew up with in the early 2000s as a teen reading the full-color 1993 editions which were readily available at local libraries at the time. Anyway, back then I was able to read the first 8 original volumes (Original Quest, Siege at Blue Mountain, and Kings of the Broken Wheel sagas) except that final and perhaps most emotional volume #8 Kings of the Broken Wheel. About three years after my initial exposure to the world of EQ I received that final book as a birthday present from my wonderful sister in the B&W Reader's Collection which she had to have paid ~ $40.00 for. When you consider that, buying this volume which includes the first 4 books, AKA the "Original Quest" for $18.62 is a remarkable bargain, even if there is one missing page (which has been referred to by other reviewers).
More about that, page 371 is repeated again on p405 with the original panels in p405 missing entirely. Sure, that's a bit disappointing, but it's not that big a deal and the Pini's have already given their fans so much by making the entire EQ saga available for free via online viewer on their website ElfquestDOTcom. The missing page can then be found in Original Quest > #12 > and then page 18 although it's not numbered.
Oh, I'll add some more volume specific details to this product.Read more ›
