INTERVIEW: ‘Elfquest’ Fan-Filmmakers Officially Acquire The Comic’s TV/Film Rights (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.”
