Dark Horse Comics has released an exciting four-page preview of “ElfQuest – Stargazer’s Hunt” issue 4, featuring a glimpse of Jink’s first adventure on the World of Two Moons. The preview is available exclusively from AIPT.
The issue was originally slated for release in May 2020 but was delayed by industry-wide shutdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The full issue is available digitally and in print wherever comics are sold on Wednesday, October 14.

Heads up! Masks up! We’ve been asked, and are proud to help support, the Heroes Wear Masks campaign being run by Facts2Health and the CDC Foundation.
It’s a fact that wearing a mask helps prevent the spread of COVID-19, yet many still don’t get it. We feel that if even one person thinks, “If it’s OK by Cutter, it’s OK by me,” we’ve made the world a little healthier.
With that goal in mind, we’ve created two new ElfQuest designs featuring Cutter to help spread this message.
You’ve asked. We reply.
Question: How does the current coronavirus situation affect the future of “Elfquest – Stargazer’s Hunt”?
Answer: The pipeline for new comics – from publisher to printer to distributor to retail shop to you – is effectively shut down indefinitely. Issue #4 of EQ-SH was scheduled for May 13, 2020; No one knows when it will actually ship.
Question: Will there be a digital release, even if there’s no print version?
Answer: No. Dark Horse Comics, our publisher, along with most other major players, will not issue digital comics without the corresponding print edition.
