Chris and Reggie’s Cosmic Treadmill

Cosmic Treadmill, Episode 38 - ElfQuest #1 (1978)

May 7, 2017

Hail and fare well! This week Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) dig into the self-published classic comic ElfQuest #1 by Richard and Wendy Pini from 1978! First, we learn a little about the weird comics historian himself, Chris, and his connection to the ElfQuest series. Then, after a little bio of the married creative team, they describe the entire first issue--and continue detailing the entire story of the First Quest! Then our stalwart adventurers unravel the publishing history of ElfQuest and where you can find evidence of the series outside of their own book. It all wraps up with a look at other married creative couples in comic books, and how you can go read ElfQuest online--for FREE!
