A couple of days ago I purchased the new amazing ElfQuest book (The Complete ElfQuest Volume 1).
However, while I was at page 405, I noticed that there is a duplicate page?
page. 371 and p.405 are the same in my book. +the page that was supposed to be on page 405 is missing.
-the page on which Aroree whistles to call her bird-
Is this the same in every book or is this just a mistake in my book?
Is this already a known problem?
I searched the internet but I could not find anything yet regarding this :)
Yep! Don't wanna be whoever proofed those galleys :D
That would be me, among a few others. Guess it's fall-on-my-sword time...
No way !
I wanted to get that for my niece's birthday- drat. But if I do she will be missing part of the story. Can we just get that missing page reprinted? Is that possible?
You know- to staple it in...
First print run is now a collector's item! Buy 'em up so there will be a second printing with the correct pages. O:-)
The page that is missing does not give vital information for the rest of the story :)
So even if you buy this volume, your niece will be able to follow the story perfectly.
Also, the book has sooo many pages that a missing page will not influence the whole story :)
the page that is missing shows aroree whisteling so that her bird will come to her, which it does. And then the next page is already in the book.
At least its only one page ;)
In my Father Tree Press vol 2 The Forbidden Grove pages 13-28 are duplicated, and pages 14-44 are missing.
As I have the original quest in a few different editions, it doesn't bug me very much, but it was disapointing back when I got all 9 volumes as a gift and was reading Elfquest in English for the first time.

I dont think Elfpop can manage that long, not making puns ;)
