Wendy and Richard Pini’s Beloved Fantasy Epic Continues with “ElfQuest: Stargazer’s Hunt
The world of ElfQuest continues to grow at Dark Horse Comics with an all-new series! ElfQuest: Stargazer’s Hunt has story by ElfQuest co-creators Wendy and Richard Pini, and a script by Wendy Pini. Veteran ElfQuest alumnus Sonny Strait returns at full force as the artist (over layouts by Wendy) and colorist for the new series.
“I feel both thrilled and anxious as I hurtle into new writing territory with Stargazer’s Hunt. Always the ‘champion’s companion,’ Skywise is now a hero unto himself, questing for a prize no one could possibly guess,” said ElfQuest co-creator Wendy Pini. “While Cutter’s story arc on the World of Two Moons was meticulously planned, Skywise’s hunt encompasses all of space and time, and surprises await. Who can know what will befall him?”
When ElfQuest: The Final Quest concluded, it ended the hero’s journey of Cutter Kinseeker, chief of the Wolfriders. But that was only the start of a new adventure for Cutter’s “brother in all but blood,” Skywise. Now the stargazer elf, who thought he knew everything about Cutter, discovers how mistaken he was. That, combined with a tragic accident involving his daughter Jink, sends Skywise on a quest of his own, from the elves’ ancestral Star Home through uncharted space, and back to the World of Two Moons.
ElfQuest: Stargazer’s Hunt goes on sale November 13, 2019.
