"Loki" (well, kind of) in Elfquest?

Post by Corannhena on Mon Apr 04, 2016 4:20 am

I've been re-reading my favorite comic book series, ElfQuest, on their website, where every issue published before 2014 is available for free, and I was on the Blood Of Ten Chiefs stories. Issue 1 has a very... familiar-looking character:

http://elfquest.com/read/index.php?s=TC/TC01&p=8

His name is Zarhan Fastfire and his (short, as he's a minor character) description says he's "the most clever among the firstborn [elves]" and "the last known firestarter". He's also called a "liar" by another character later on in the linked issue. Hm...

(note: this issue was not drawn by the original artist of the series, Wendy Pini. The style is vastly different from hers.)

Wow, good catch!
I have all the books except for the newest ones as I'm waiting for Vol 2 of "The Final Quest" to be published so I can get them at the same time.
I was going to start at the beginning and binge-read through all the way into the new ones!
It's been a long time since I've read them and I really hated how several did not have Wendy's art. I will watch for that guy when I look through them again! I do wonder if he was influenced by Loki, that is awfully coincidental.

Blood Of Ten Chiefs is a spin-off of sorts so idk if they're in the books (which I, believe it or not, still don't have. Thinking about getting the Complete Elfquest, though). But like I said, you can read it on the website (elfquest.com) for free anyway. I haven't come across Zarhan in any other BOTC issues yet, though, but I'm only on number 4 of like... 18.

And yeah, I've been binge-reading the comics myself, albeit on the website. Original Quest is still my favorite, but I also really like the Grohmul Djun arc. And Shuna. Shuna's awesome.

Yes, I have that, as Volume 9b of the collected graphic novels.
I was just looking at my shelf, and I have almost all of them ... I didn't get the ones about "The Rebels" or "Jink" which were like future story lines of a few elf descendants or something.
That's great though that they've put them up for free. Also it's good to see them all being republished.
