Back in the day, whenever Wendy and Richard would attend a comic convention, they’d ask fellow professionals to add a drawing to what came to be known as “Wendy’s Elf Book.” The only condition was that the subject be that artist’s interpretation of an elf, not necessarily an ElfQuest elf. The results run the gamut from serious to silly, deceptively simple to ornately detailed. A few even edge over into being lightly risqué — all the while however keeping within the realm of good taste and good fun. Enjoy now a stroll through the wonderfully varied responses.
