One of the greatest things about ElfQuest is that Wendy and Richard Pini take the time to weave an amazing level of detail and plot into each issue--even in the background art. Over the years so much that isn't necessarily a part of the main story arc, and could easily be skipped, can be seen by paying close attention to what's happening in the background. Often these moments are used tell us more about the characters' relationships and personalities. This is one reason reading ElfQuest is such a rich experience.

Wendy posted this on Facebook, and it certainly bears repeating here.
I have something important to say – please bear with it because it actually has a lot to do with the most recent issue of “Final Quest” (and all of “Final Quest” for that matter). In the news and social media, right now, vigorous dialogue about sexism and misogyny has been aroused by the recent Isla Vista shooting spree. Unfortunately, I’m seeing a lot of hate and blame being directed not at specific offenders, but at men in general and young white males in particular.
