Wendy and Richard Pini’s Elfquest is one of the most influential fantasy comics of all time, and Wendy Pini was so committed to her creation that she actually cosplayed as one of her characters. But now at last, you can read the whole early Elfquest saga in one great volume.


Today, Dark Horse Comics announced that it’s releasing one epic volume of The Original ElfQuest, comprising 720 pages of “what is now known as The Original Quest.” The volume will include concept art, pinups and covers, plus commentary from the Pinis. That’s coming in August. Then in October, Dark Horse is releasing a prestige edition of Wendy Pini’s artwork for first five issues of ElfQuest, carefully re-scanned to capture every line and detail, so it’s as close as you can get to holding her original artwork in your hands.
