Under a two-mooned sky 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 formed and broken, and epic battles fought in this ermous fantasy epic. This edition collects 'The Final Quest' with commentaries from creators Wendy and Rick 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. The author lives in Los Angeles, CA.
