Every issue of Elfquest free — oldest independent comic goes online

Tavie sez,

I just found out that my favorite comic series of all time, Elfquest, has announced an initiative to celebrate their 30th anniversary, wherein, by the end of the year, EVERY issue ever will be available online for free.

It's hard to describe it, but it's an amazing body of work. It was one of the first independently published comics in the world and one of the most successful. The core story is about a group of elves from outer space who ride wolves – it sounds crazy when I say it, you just have to read it.

This is a 30 year old universe (older than me!) so there are spinoffs and side-stories and rarities that even I, as a hard-core fan, have never gotten to read. And soon I will be able to enjoy every single shred of it. For free. Just 'cuz.

The internet is beyond words in its capacity to make me happy.


(Thanks, Tavie!)
