ELFQUEST SOARS AT SAN DIEGO'S COMIC-CON
"ElfQuest: A Fan Imagining" Creators, Cast, and Comic Book Originators to Participate in Panel Discussion at Renowned Fan Convention
Los Angeles – Elves are descending on San Diego at Comic-Con International 2011 for the panel ElfQuest: From the Woods to the Web on Friday, July 22nd at 8pm.
New media producers/actors Stephanie Thorpe (GOLD: Night of the Zombie King) and Paula Rhodes (A Good Knight’s Quest) are responsible for the current phenomenon of fan resurgence in the mystical comic book series ElfQuest, created by Wendy and Richard Pini in 1978.
Thorpe and Rhodes collaborated to create the fan-made, non-profit trailer “ElfQuest: A Fan Imagining” which has been earning high praise from the media and enormous fan support since launching in April at the Screen Actors Guild New Media premiere. Lifelong fans of the comic book, Thorpe and Rhodes pulled together their skills and resources, along with a cast of famed ‘women of the web’ and donations from other devoted fans to create the world of Two Moons.
ElfQuest tells the tale of a tribe of elves who find themselves driven from their forest by humans and must find a new home. It’s known for its magical artistry and for being a vanguard of the indie/fantasy scene. Originally self published by the Pini’s, the comic book series was later picked up by Marvel and DC Comics respectively.
Up next, Thorpe and Rhodes are looking at features that resonate with their geek heritage for their next project together. Individually, Rhodes will return to webseries Hollywood Wasteland, while Thorpe is currently working on a sci-fi series with director Andrew Erin (Confined), and a travel/food/fashion show with host Kristyn Burtt. Thorpe is proud to announce 10 episodes of the new series “Shelf Life,” premiering at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. The live action comedy was produced by Thorpe with Yuri Lowenthal (Legion of Superheroes) and Tara Platt (Afterworld) and directed by Eisner Award-winning comic author Paul Jenkins.
