Volume 1 collects Wendy and Richard Pini's sixty-page special and the first six issues of The Final Quest, the newest adventures of the Wolfriders

"Even with a bit of a slowdown in pace, Wendy and Richard Pini's "Elfquest: The Final Quest" is a pleasant read. And with the setup for what's to come next time, I'm looking forward to seeing them in "60," as the old issues' letter-column liked to state things. I suspect readers who made it this far will agree." - Comic Book Resources

"Elfquest is just one of those stories that you never want to end. It's so visually pleasing, I would be totally down for a virtual game or even just a tour of the palace. So yet again, Elfquest scores a five out of five." - Comic Bastards

"Wendy Pini's art is as strong as it ever was, and we feel for the characters as they move forward in time and in their individual lives. The scripting augments the beautiful art so very well If you're looking for some engaging fantasy, don't miss Elfquest: The Final Quest It's something special and will pull you in from the first time you read it " - Major Spoilers

For more than 30 years, the Pinis' ElfQuest saga has satisfied readers with tales of the glamorous but fierce elves who share an alien planet with nonmagical, often hostile humans. New readers may feel baffled at this point, but they can catch on soon. This story essentially shows elves exploring personal relationships and enjoying enthusiastic PG-13 sex, while humans—especially the lunatic tyrant Angrif Djun—hate but secretly envy them. Also, the safe haven that one clan of elves thought they'd found is somehow tampering with their powers, so they must find a new home. Much uprooting and turmoil ensues. Richard Pini's script gives satisfying time for each familiar character to perform, creating a comforting sense of close family relationships. Wendi Pini's artwork keeps the huge cast distinct, and her composition is smoothly professional, sometimes lovely. Longtime fans won't be disappointed. (Apr.)
