January 25-28, 2018 – Angoulême Festival Bande Desinée – Angoulême, France
The Angoulême International Comics Festival is the second largest comics festival in Europe, and the third biggest in the world. It has occurred every year since 1974 in Angoulême, France, in the month of January. … More than 200,000 visitors come each year to the fair, including between 6,000 and 7,000 professionals and 800 journalists. The festival takes place all over the town, and is divided in many different areas that are not connected to each other directly.
Wendy and Richard will be at the festival all four days, courtesy of Elfquest’s French publisher, Snorgleux. In addition, book store signings are planned after the show ends, in Paris, Lyon, Brussels, and Marseille. Dates and times to be announced as soon as we know more.
February 28, 2018 – Things From Another World- Portland, Oregon
Things From Another World is proud to welcome Wendy Pini and Richard Pini, creators of the fantasy epic ElfQuest, to the Portland TFAW February 28 for a signing and Q&A! Attendees can pick up issue #24 (fresh off the presses) of ElfQuest-The Final Quest from Dark Horse Comics (as well as many other Elfquest comics and books). More details as soon as we know them!
Wendy and Richard launched the Final Quest series with a signing at this very shop in 2014. We look forward to seeing everyone there again for the start of Elfquest’s “victory lap” party!
March 1-4, 2018 – Emerald City ComicCon – Seattle, Washington
The Emerald City Comicon is an annual comic book convention taking place in Seattle, Washington. Originally taking place at the city’s CenturyLink Field (first at West Field Plaza, then at the Event Center), the venue changed in 2008 to its current home at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center. In 2011, the show expanded to a three-day event. In 2013, the show utilized the entire Washington State Convention and Trade Center for the first time.
Wendy and Richard will attend all four days. There will be signings at the Dark Horse Comics booth, and they will have a table in Artist’s Alley where you can stop by to meet and greet. Stay tuned to see if they will also be a panel discussion at some point during the show.
April 6-8, 2018 – C2E2 – Chicago, Illinois
Our mission at C2E2 is to deliver content that excites and engages the tens of thousands of fans that come through our doors each year. Whether you’re looking for the lowdown on your favorite movies & TV shows or the latest and greatest in comics, cosplay, gaming, anime, toys and more – C2E2 is the place to be for all things pop culture! We’re on the lookout for creative and diverse programming that will help make C2E2 2018 an unforgettable experience for each and every fan.
Wendy and Richard will attend all three days. There will be signings at the Dark Horse Comics booth, and they will have a table in Artist’s Alley where you can stop by to meet and greet. Stay tuned to see if they will also be a panel discussion at some point during the show.
April 27-29, 2018 – East Coast Comic Con – Meadowlands, New Jersey
“We make comics, collect comics, and deal in rare underground comix, so we thought we’d like to make a con that embodied our sensibilities. As the major conventions grow exponentially, but focus less on comics, we felt a good old-fashioned con with a strong emphasis on comics was needed. … Our mission is to bring great guests and keep comics and its creators the focus of our shows.” – Cliff Galbraith, Crucial Entertainment
Wendy and Richard will attend all three days; they’ll have a table where you can get books signed, and plan at least one rollicking panel presentation. Read more here.
July 19-22, 2018 – Comic-Con International – San Diego, California
“Over the years, Comic-Con has become a focal point for the world of comics conventions. The event continues to offer the complete convention experience: a giant Exhibit Hall; a massive programming schedule; anime and film screenings; games; the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards; a Masquerade costume competition with prizes and trophies; an Autograph Area; an Art Show; and Portfolio Reviews.”
Wendy and Richard will attend all four days. Signings at the Dark Horse Comics booth, at least, are guaranteed; we don’t know yet if they will have a table/booth, or if they will be able to present a panel discussion and show. Stay tuned.
