I had the chance to celebrate all things ElfQuest at the 2013 Emerald City Comic Con this past weekend.  

Joined by creators Wendy and Richard Pini, “Quest” fans shared in an examination of all things “ElfQuest”: past, present and an exciting look ahead at what the future holds for this beloved series.
Recently announced on the front page of Variety, Thorpe and producing partner Paula Rhodes acquired the film/TV rights to the ElfQuest franchise. As one of the driving forces behind the award-winning cyber-phenom “ElfQuest: A Fan Imagining”, Thorpe brought her unique perspective to the lively discussion. This short live-action production has had over 300,000 views since its debut, earning numerous awards and accolades from film festivals, conventions and the media with over 100 articles and interviews to date. http://www.elfquestfantrailer.com

Thorpe comments, “I think ElfQuest resonates with fans on so many levels. Wendy and Richard Pini are really incredible visionaries and the art is absolutely beautiful. People are also really attracted to the grand adventures that Cutter and his tribe go on, and despite being elves, these conflicts make for very human stories.”

Check back soon for more updates as I move forward with development of this exciting series!
