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). For the first time, they’re trying something different. For some 2022 shows they are being hosted by The Bard’s Tower, which is a wonderful independent book store set up within the convention. They will be available for signings and chat each day of the show; 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 super safe. Have your mask ready. Sorry, no handshakes or hugging, but photos “across the table” should be 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 2022 appearances they are hosted by The Bard’s Tower (see above). The Bard’s Tower will bring copies of books to sell so Wendy and Richard don’t have to deal with shipping, overseeing a table, and so on. 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, actually they have. And the reason is simple: Conventions don’t pay them to be there, so the time spent traveling to, being at, and getting back from a show, adds up to days of work time (and income) lost. It’s just math.
