Elfquest is the longest-running independent fantasy series, with more than 15 million comics, graphic novels and other publications in print. The story of Cutter, chief of the Wolfriders, and his quest to find others of their own kind on the World of Two Moons, Elfquest was first published in 1978 by creators Wendy and Richard Pini. The latest cycle, The Final Quest, is being published by Dark Horse Comics.
Meet the elves and their foes and friends in our Who’s Who. The Wolfriders number only 17 at the outset, but come to know hundreds of other elves, trolls and humans as the quest unfolds. Greet the Sun Folk, the Gliders, the Go-Backs, the Wavedancers, and the future folk.
