Public Appearances – 2023


UPDATE – January 28, 2023.

As 2023 dawns, Wendy and Richard have not yet added any in-person conventions or other public appearances to their busy calendar. Covid remains a factor in their considerations; they both — despite taking precautions — got hit with the coronavirus as a result of convention appearances in 2022. It is no surprise that they are going slow into the new year. Keep checking back; also bookmark this page and follow us on social media for the most up-to-date information.

PLEASE READ THE FAQ directly below. Finally, as long as Covid remains a significant threat, this listing is subject to change without notice.


Wendy and Richard Pini Appearance FAQ

Here are answers to questions we frequently get regarding appearances. Please check back regularly for updates.

“Will Wendy and Richard have a table/booth in the exhibition hall?”

It depends on the show — check each listing for details. They will generally be available for signings and chat each day of the show at certain times; check back if they are away (for a panel, meals, breaks, etc.).

“Can I give Wendy and Richard a hug?”

Even though they’re both vaccinated and boosted, they’re playing it safe. Have your mask ready. Sorry, no handshakes or hugging, but fistbumps and photos/selfies across the table are OK.

“Does Wendy do convention sketches?”

No. Wendy stopped doing these a few years ago, for a number of reasons. No exceptions.

“Do Wendy and Richard bring comics/books/stuff to sell?”

Check each listing for details. At some appearances they may be hosted (for example, by Dark Horse Comics) and the host will provide books. At other shows, Wendy and Richard may bring items for sale.

“Will they autograph comics we bring? Is there a fee?”

Yes, and yes. Here’s how it works:

  • For most “everyday” ElfQuest comics and books, the first one is free and then $10 each after that.
  • For rare or “collector” or oddball items (unboxed figures, t-shirts, obscure publications, complete title runs, portfolio sets, etc.) – $40 per item signed.
  • For “Fantasy Quarterly” or any grading service witnessed signature – $100.

“Why are they charging for signatures? They didn’t used to.”

Yes, they have. The reason is simple: The time spent traveling to, being at, and getting back from a show, adds up to days of work time (and income) lost. They have to make that up.
