Wendy and Richard Pini and Dark Horse Comics have revealed the stunning cover art for ElfQuest: Stargazer’s Hunt – Vol 2!
The book collects the remaining chapters and concludes the Stargazer’s Hunt series, which chronicles elfin stargazer Skywise’s adventures after leaving the World of Two Moons.
Available in May 2022. Pre-order from Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Indigo. Vol 1 is available now.
Dark Horse Comics has announced the latest installment in its ElfQuest omnibus series. The Complete ElfQuest Volume 7debuts in February 2020 and will collect the entire Final Quest series into one giant book.
Previously collected in four smaller color graphic novels, this new omnibus collection will showcase the art in black and white in keeping with the established aesthetic of the Complete ElfQuest series.
This volume will complete the collection of the canonical ElfQuest tales published over the last four decades chronicling the hero’s journey of Cutter Kinseeker, chief of the Wolfriders.
We are tremendously excited to report a brand new ElfQuest comic series kicking off in 2019. ElfQuest – Stargazer’s Hunt picks up a few years following the conclusion of The Final Quest, the forty-years-in-the-telling tale of Cutter Kinseeker’s hero’s journey, and focuses on Cutter’s brother in all but blood, Skywise.
What does life hold for the Wolfriders’ one-time stargazer now that he’s achieved his ultimate dream of returning to the Starhome? How does he cope with the loss of his soulmate Cutter?
Dark Horse Comics has released the fifth volume in its Complete ElfQuest omnibus graphic novel series collecting the canonical adventures of the Wolfriders.
This volume weighs in at a hefty 760 pages and collects the tales of Chieftess Ember and her half of the Wolfrider tribe. These stories were originally published in the comic series Elfquest: Hidden Years #16-29, as well as the entire ”Wild Hunt” sequence from Elfquest comics (vol.2).
Find the book now at your local bookstore or comics shop or order it from Things from Another World.
Dark Horse Comics has released a preview of the new graphic novel ElfQuest: Final Quest Volume 3, which collects issues 13-18 of the comic series into one full-color volume.
The book becomes available on June 28, 2017. Check it out and order your copy today.
As (we hope) you know, Dark Horse Comics has published two gorgeous volumes in their “Complete Elfquest” series. These books contain, in the first collection, the entire original 20-issue quest; and in the second, all 17 issues of “Siege at Blue Mountain” and “Kings of the Broken Wheel.”
Those were the easy collections! Each book contains totally linear story. But now, as Warp and Dark Horse contemplate further volumes, the question becomes “In what order should the later tales be read to make the most sense?”
Important! Comic Con is getting close, and for those of you hoping to find us (Wendy and Richard) to say hi, get a book or three signed, pick up a copy of the newly-released Final Quest #4… here’s the scoop. We will not have a booth or table this year. We will be signing at the Dark Horse booth two, maybe three times on two, maybe three days. As soon as you get to the show, check the program book to find out where and when.
Just out from Dark Horse Comics, here’s the solicitation for issue #5!

Sound the alarm! Have Facebook, Twitter, online forums and blogs killed the letter of comment? You know … those things you used to write to your favorite comics and hope that they got chosen. Have they gone extinct? Do fans still like seeing their names in print?
Why are we asking? Because Dark Horse just reported that their supply of LoC’s (letters of comment) for Final Quest has dried up – and we’ve only just begun the series! Can it be that you find nothing comment-worthy left to write about?
It is done, it is finished, it is on its way to Dark Horse via upload even as I type these words. What happens in this issue? What doesn’t?! July may seem like a long way off, but we promise it will get here before … August. (In the meantime, feel free to speculate. We admit or deny nothing.)
From Dark Horse:
SEATTLE, WA—In 1978, Wendy and Richard Pini first published what would become one of the most revered classic-fantasy epics in comics.

Dark Horse proudly presents ElfQuest: The Original Quest Gallery Edition, a one-of-a-kind edition, which collects the first five issues of The Original Quest (“Fire and Flight”) in their gorgeous original glory.
The second issue of Final Quest is still a month away from release (March 26) but the fine folks at Dark Horse are already lining up #3 for you to pre-order right here! It’ll be out on May 28. (Bundle it with #2, why don’t’cha?)
