Art of Elfquest by Wendy and Richard Pini


Since its first appearance in 1978, Elfquest has touched the spirit of multiple generations of readers thanks to the power of Wendy Pini’s captivating storytelling and dynamic art. Fortunately for its fans, nearly every piece of Wendy’s original art—paintings, sketches and notes dating back to the conception of the comics series—has been meticulously catalogued and preserved by her husband-collaborator, Richard. Now, after years of research and with unparalleled access to those archives, we present The Art of Elfquest, a comprehensive 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 showcased such a tremendous amount of material.


The Art of Elfquest presents a premium sampling of cover art and interior pages spanning nearly four decades of the award-winning series, beginning with historic first concepts in words and pictures. This massive collection also features sections devoted to Elfquest’s many and varied incarnations in print—calendars, portfolios, a coloring book, illustrations for prose novelization, storyboard art for film and newspaper-strip proposals, and much more. Impromptu interviews and conversations with Wendy and Richard Pini infuse the book with revealing comments to supplement Wendy’s art.

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