The Women of Comic Con: How the Internet Killed the Studio Star

Holly Derr weighs in on how the Internet is changing the world for geek girls and for women in Hollywood.

“During the lead up to this year’s Comic Con International, a Networked Insights analysis of social media conversation showed that 54% of people talking about the conference were women.  At panel discussions, in interviews, even at parties, woman after woman said the same thing: The Internet is changing the world for geek girls and for women in Hollywood.

Stephanie Thorpe, who spoke on the panel Web Creators Assemble, produces the web series Ladies and Gents–a collection of 30-second to two-minute scenes in the restrooms of a typical LA club. Thorpe came to her first Comic Con when she was eight and left with her first comic book: Elfquest. As an adult, Thorpe became an actor because wanted she wanted to play her favorite genre characters. When she didn’t find enough of the kind of roles she wanted to play in Hollywood, she started making content herself. Today she owns the film and TV rights for the 35-year-old Elfquest franchise.”

More on ElfQuest at CSICon: The Home of Geek Culture

Paula Rhodes and I chat with Breki Tomasson on CSICon’s “The Dialogue”.

ElfQuest pic

Here’s a peek:

CSICON: Personally, I was very happy to hear that there was somebody finally working on an Elfquestmovie; much more than when I heard about Captain America, Iron Man, Batman or any of the comic book movies of late. Why do you think Elfquest resonates so much with its fans?

Stephanie: I think it resonates with its fans on many levels. Wendy and Richard Pini are really incredible visionaries and the art, first and foremost, that Wendy has drawn in these comic books is just so beautiful and I think a lot of people are really attracted to it for that reason, but also because of, you know, the stories of this grand adventure that Cutter and his tribe go on are, despite them being elves, they’re very human stories. We’re looking at the hero’s quest here. For Paula and I, all these female characters that we found when we were eight were great role models for us. It’s great to see female characters that didn’t have to be saved by men, they were leaders in their own right, so these graphic novels, these comic books of Elfquest really speak to people on a lot of different levels, and there’s something for everyone in them.
Paula: Yeah; they deal with problems that we recognize in our world now around us, and yet they deal with them in ways that I think we only wish humans would deal with them.

CSICON: That’s a very interesting perspective. It’s something that a lot of comic books don’t really do all that well.

Check out my latest interview with The “IN” Show as Paula & I share the latest news on ElfQuest, the indie & New Media scene, and look forward to the our development of the famed fantasy series.

Published on Dec 14, 2012

New Media Revolutionaries Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes acquired the film and television rights to the 35-year old comic book series and fantasy franchise, ElfQuest, by Wendy and Richard Pini! These multi-talented, entertainment trailblazers took some time to stop by The “IN” Show to share the whats, hows, whys and more of Indie Producing, ElfQuest and what’s in store for Elves and Elf Lovers everywhere!

‘Elfquest’ Fan-Filmmakers Officially Acquire The Comic’s TV/Film Rights on Comics Alliance

“After years of waiting for a big studio production of ElfQuest, fans and web TV producers Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes took matters into their own hands by creating their own short film based on the indie comics perennial by Wendy and Richard Pini. Called ElfQuest: A Fan Imagining, the four-and-a-half minute trailer was among the better comic book fan films ever made, and was warmly embraced by ElfQuest readers. Now in what must be a first, the makers of a fan film have found themselves in possession of the film and television rights to the comic, a move made by the Pinis after the ElfQuest rights reverted back to them when a Warner Bros. film failed to materialize.”
