DC's Elfquest Special
By Brian Jacks
Celebrating both the 25th anniversary of Elfquest's debut and the beginning of DC's line of Elfquest books, DC has announced it will release Elfquest: 25th Anniversary Edition, a 40-page one-shot created by Wendy and Richard Pini that reprints the introductory story from the now-classic Elfquest #1, originally published in 1978.
"It's great to be getting underway," Wendy Pini says. "It's been a long time since I've worked to a schedule. This is like a rebirth for me, really getting back into the trenches. It's so satisfying to be making the changes and upgrades to the original artwork for new readers, and I'm very emotionally connected to the new storyline which I'm starting this month."
Richard Pini added, "As an erstwhile publisher, I have to admit I wondered what I would do to fill my days. Happily, I now have more than enough to do and it feels wonderful to be teaming up again full time with Wendy."
