Usually Tuesdays is a manga review, but I decided to switch to American comics for today so I could indulge in ElfQuest love.
I just found out today that the ENTIRE ElfQuest series is online at ElfQuest.com. I’d heard about the site before, but I didn’t realize that the story was still on-going and that all the back issues were there.
I love, LOVE ElfQuest. I used to check it out of the library (and re-check it out) all the time. I read and re-read those books so many times that if I had any drawing talent I could probably recreate the whole thing from memory. When I got older and had my own money, I started buying the books. I have the first ElfQuest story in hard cover, color edition, the rest in black-and-white trade paperback.
I was first introduced to ElfQuest after moving to Richmond, VA in the 1990’s. My friend and her gamer family (I thought it was so clue that they were adult gamers — a foreign concept to me at the time) had a few of the books. My friend let me borrow them when I wouldn’t put them down. I fell in love with Cutter and Leetah from the first moment I saw them. They were my first interracial fantasy couple… Okay not first. That would be Storm and Forge from X-Men, but first outside of comic book land.
I love everything about that series even if I did start reading it just to learn more about Leetah and Cutter’s relationship. My collection of the above mentioned books are in storage, so this website is a lifesaver. I get to re-read and catch up on the story, as well enjoy the new weekly installments.
For those who like elves and shifters and magic and an absolutely wonderful story, you should stop by the site and get lost in the world of Two Moons and the story of the Wolfriders.
