Dark Horse Comics has announced the end of ElfQuest: The Final Quest with issue #24, bringing an end to the beloved genre bending series.
After 40 years of award-winning content, Wendy and Richard Pini are now stepping away from their popular series, ElfQuest, for a well-deserved break and to focus on other creative projects.
“How simple, like the closing of a door, a 40-year labor of love comes to the conclusion we ordained so long ago…Richard and I can barely express our joy at the love we’re receiving from fans around the world. We return that love and look forward to our continued association with Dark Horse. Nothing’s more fun for us than being the guiding hands behind other creators’ interpretations of the elves.”– Wendy Pini
“I’ve followed ElfQuest since it’s very first publication. It took me several decades to finally bring Richard and Wendy’s wonderful creation to Dark Horse, and we’re proud they’ve chosen us to present the final chapters of their epic story…As a publisher, I couldn’t find better people to work with. As a fan, I couldn’t be more honored.” – Mike Richardson, Dark Horse President & Founder
ElfQuest: The Final Quest #24 finds heroes’ journeys that started in the Original Quest coming to their resolutions here. Fateful events set in motion last issue continue to have unstoppable consequences, as dire battles are fought on both the physical and the spiritual realms. Now decisions must be made that will affect everyone—elves and humans alike— on the World of Two Moons far into the future. Can the Great Wheel of time and history, broken so many thousands of years ago, ever be made whole again?
