For generations, the elves sought a safe haven against all who would do them harm. But the dream that Chief Cutter and his Wolfriders fought and died for may be the very thing destroying them. The skills that helped them survive the harsh world are fading, and the growing threat of a tyrant obsessed with exterminating all elves makes for a disastrous brew that must surely boil over.

    "Elfquest" is a unique beast, a fantasy adventure with little adventure, espousing a hippie-commune ethos that's equal parts laughable and enviable, made somehow better by its flaws, refusing to change over nearly forty years of publication. Wendy and Richard Pini clearly care deeply about their characters, and that attachment shows through in every page. Caring this much about something isn't cool, and it'll turn many readers away. But for those who stay, who earnestly give in, the reward is to find personal satisfaction in a comic that spends sixty awkward pages jumping from elf to elf in a cast of hundreds, catching up with every secondary and tertiary character like a half-forgotten friend at a really great party.

    Overall, this book is unbalanced and slow. It covers a lot of ground, but with minimal impact, and almost fails to deliver a story that a reader could feel coaxed into reading with interest. If this were a TV show, it would a be on the same level of a clip show with a weak premise and dozens of characters all reciting Remember the time?, grabbing a smattering of applause, and then leaving. I just hope the second and third books give more energy to the plot, and give this great host of characters something to do. Read Full Review
