- Full Description
In 1978, Wendy and Richard Pini first published what would become one of the most revered classic fantasy epics in comics. Today, ElfQuest continues to capture the imaginations of readers of all ages, as Chief Cutter and his Wolfriders battle savage humans, forge lasting alliances, and discover strange new lands in this ultimate fantasy adventure!
This one-of-a-kind gallery edition collects the first five issues of The Original Quest, Fire and Flight, in their gorgeous original glory. Each page is carefully scanned from Wendy Pini's original art to capture every stroke and detail. At 12"x17", it's as close to holding her original art as a fan may get.
These were first done purely as black and white pages, during the early days of alternative, creator-owned comics. It was only later than Wendy added color, for subsequent editions. This is how each page was first created to appear, self-published by the creators. Wendy Pini, and Richard Pini are the husband-and-wife team responsible for creating Elfquest, first as comics, later as graphic novels and prose works, and a film in the works.
New introduction by Richard Pini. Includes full color paintings for each cover, as well as rare early sketches and model sheets for each of the key characters, drawn as Wendy was first visualizing the series. Winner of the Golden Pen Award from the Young Adult Advisory Committee!
