As a long time reader I have enjoyed so many books, comics, manga, graphic novels, series and more. Today there are thousands of titles in many formats for the voracious reader to enjoy.
Well on 2/28/18 my all time favorite comic series came to an end. Elfquest began its run back in 1978 but I didn’t find it till 1982. Lucky for me at the time they were putting out only two to three issues a year so I was not too far behind.
The series took the readers through a lot of ups and down of the characters. We readers came to have our favorites and in the Final Quest many of the stories were brought to a conclusion. In the last few issues characters that had been there from the very start were no longer there.
I found myself laughing, sighing, gasping and crying. The story was so rich and the ending of some of my all time favorite characters were so touching that it was so worth following it.
There are of course some little threads that have not been tied up but most of the story lines are fully realized by the very last page. There hasnt been a definite ending to tales set in the world of Two Moons but like all long time fans I hope there will be more.
Now the reason I went on about this as a long time reader this series helped to form me as a writer. I have, as those of you who have read my work, written many stories with elves in them. I love adding mystical and magical elements to my work and I continue to hope that I will find an audience outside of the few friends I have made over the years.
If you haven’t heard of Elfquest before but you love either my tales or stories of fantasy and magic, then pick up the series. They have collected issues together so you can pick up five at at time. With forty years of stories you have a lot to read.
