1970’s cosplay from various WorldCons, SF cons and Trek cons. Notable points: 4th Doctor, K9 (actual dog in suit, I think!) & Leela, Gundam, Rollerball and ElfQuest creator Wendy Pini as Red Sonja! Final picture has George Takei and James Doohan as judges of the costume contest. In honor of Throwback Thursday!

Things I like:
Goodness, I hope I’m not the only person who mentions Elfquest. I Leetah and the rest of her people are dark-skinned elves….not evil, either. THEY are the civilized ones! There’s Rayek (who’s more of an anti-hero), and Savah Mother of Memory, and Suntoucher and the Jackwolfriders. Elfquest, definitely, FTW.

Whoa, I’ve never even heard of this. Cool!


Elfquest is the longest-running independent fantasy series, with more than 15 million comics, graphic novels and other publications in print. The story of Cutter, chief of the Wolfriders, and his quest to find others of their own kind on the World of Two Moons, Elfquest was first published in 1978 by creators Wendy and Richard Pini. The latest cycle, The Final Quest, is being published by Dark Horse Comics.


Also looks like they have a 64-page one-shot prologue to the current storyline with a preview.



The creators of Elfquest are white, and have unfortunately caused great hurt to their fans of color by endorsing blackface and engaging in it.


Hey, didja miss us at WonderCon 2013?! Never fear, we have some great photos from our signings featuring our guests Sam Lavagnino (adorable Catbug from Bravest Warriors); the awesome ladies of Team Unicorn; the great Wendy Pini, creator of Elfquest; and Bravest Warriors’ moop master Danny, John Omohundro! They’re up in a Facebook gallery now, have a look!



Wendy Pini wrote a book documenting her attempt to make an animated film project of the Stormbringer series. Law and Chaos: The “Stormbringer” Animated Film Project was published by Father Tree Press (an imprint of the Pinis’ WaRP Graphics) in 1987. The book contains original artwork, information on the characters, an overview of the plot, and Wendy Pini’s personal investment in the project. The film never reached completion. However, the full content of Law and Chaos may be found on the Masque of the Red Death web site.[6]

I’d highly recommend that you guys check this out (if you haven’t already), because it’s extremely interesting and the illustrations are beautiful.
