A tribe of elves navigates friendships and dangerous enemies in a fantasy world of goblins, dwarves, fairies and humans!
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
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 cocreated, 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. More than three million copies of the collected graphic
novel volumes have been sold to date.
Richard Pini is one half of the husband-and-wife team responsible for creating the well-known Elfquest series of comics, graphic novels, and prose works.
