I like to start my reviews off by listing the comics that I give 4 or 5 star ratings to... Preacher, Hellblazer and Sandman by Vertigo comics/DC, Kingdom Come, The Dark Knight Returns, Watchmen, also by Vertigo comics/DC I think (except for Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns I believe), The Killing Joke, Old Man Logan, Runaways, Saga, Rat Queens, and (somewhat) more recently the Superior Spider Man .... if you like the titles I mentioned then maybe your tastes are similar to mine.... bear in mind elfquest is NOTHING like any of the books I mentioned above.. and still in my opinion definitely ranks 5 stars even now decades after the comic books were originally written.
Can't believe there's only 7 reviews stating how awesome this book is ! :) For a better review of what the elfquest world is like in general, check out Elfquest book one ISBN-10: 0898651409 .. this is an example of a very, VERY old series of comic books.. that are so well written than even when I give them to teenager readers of today, decades after the books were first written, today's teenagers still enjoy the heck out of these books ! :)
A word of warning... the books are best enjoyed in color but it's increasingly hard to find the color editions, they're more likely to be black and white nowadays... this particular book is in color but... the other problem is giving how old and out of print the books are they can be hideously expensive! Which brings me to my next topic, something a lot of people don't know about...
If you can't find a copy in color for a reasonable price,google "elfquest" and "read online free"... in an incredibly generous move the creators of elfquest have made the older (which are in my opinion the best) issues of elfquest free to view online , in full color...
