Summary

Since its first appearance in 1978, Elfquest has touched the spirit of multiple generations thanks to the strength of Wendy Pini's captivating storytelling and dynamic art. Fortunately for its fans, nearly every piece of Pini’s original art, sketches, notes and scraps of paper dating back to the conception of her fantasy comic series has been meticulously catalogued and preserved by the artist and her husband-collaborator, Richard. And now—after years of research and with unparalleled access to those files—we present The Art of Elfquest, which represents a complete overview of the very best artwork spanning nearly forty years. Each piece has been meticulously scanned directly from the original artwork and approved by the Pinis. No other collection has featured such a tremendous amount of material being revealed for the first time.

The Art of Elfquest features the very best covers and premium samples of interior pages spanning its historic run. This massive collection continues with sections devoted to Elfquest's continued success in comics and is further accentuated by sections on calendars and portfolios, a coloring book and novel illustrations, art for film and newspaper-strip proposals, a feature on the first concepts and much more. Fresh interviews with Wendy and Richard Pini also infuse the book with revealing captions to supplement Wendy's art.

Whether you are new to the adventures or have been with Elfquest from its earliest days, you will enjoy and cherish this gorgeous retrospective, which properly highlights the art of a legendary pioneer in the independent comics field.
