Discover the legendary Elfquest! Created in 1978, Elfquest continues to capture the imaginations of readers young and old. Chief Cutter and the Wolfriders are driven from their forest home by the threat of annihilation. As they wander an ever-changing landscape inhabited by excitable humans--and other odd creatures--they discover other elf tribes as well. Alliances are forged, enemies discovered, and savage battles fought in this epic fantasy adventure! This edition boasts 720 pages, collecting the entirety of what is now known as "The Original Quest" in stunning black and white, including an extensive gallery of concept art, pinups, and covers, with commentary from series creators Wendy and Richard Pini.
Wendy Pini was born Wendy Fletcher in San Francisco. Growing up on an isolated ranch in Gilroy, California, Wendy's imagination was fueled by all forms of fantasy and mythology. At an early age she began spinning her own tales of elves, monkey-gods, aliens and sorcerers. While her artistic talents were influenced by of turn-of-the-century illustrators, film and TV animation, her storytelling abilities evolved from a love of Shakespeare, Japanese history and legend, modern fantasy and the epic poetry of the Ramayana.

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..
