During the past 40 years Wendy and Richard Pini created an ‘Indy’ comic called Elfquest centering in the adventures of Elves surviving in a prehistoric world where they ride Dire Wolves and compete with Humans and Trolls and other mythological beings. Wendy and Richard met through correspondence when Wendy wrote a letter to Marvel about the Silver Surfer. Richard became intrigued and contacted her and were eventually married and together they started Elfquest.

After 40 years Wendy decided to end her run by having her main hero ‘Cutter’ die from a venomous spider bite. Later this same year we lost Stan Lee whose Marvel comics had reprinted Wendy's books during the 90's to a broader audience.

This cartoon which I also have on Facebook is a tribute to them both.

Someone introduced me to it back in the early 2000s. I never really read it but from what I saw it was interesting :)

Her cosplaying Red Sonja is pretty damn cool though!!!

There was a local bookstore that sold Elfquest comics (the b/w originals, not the Marvel reprints) from a box on the floor, as if to keep them away from actual books. Also in the box were early D&D modules. Every time I went there I read through the comics in the box, but then purchased one of the modules (if I had enough pocket money saved). Keep on the Borderlands!
