As long time fans of mine know, I own the rights to a good chunk of the comics that Aircel put out back in the 80s/90s — to be more specific, I own the material Barry Blair produced in his long and rather productive career. Barry was a great friend of mine and my mentor as a young artist. He was the guy who first hired me to draw Elfquest back while I was working for Joe Orlando at DC Comics and still a student at the School of Visual Arts (back in about 1993/94). Barry knew of my love for the work he had done, and my obsession with Elflord (and Dragonforce, but that’s a topic for another time).
One of my goals since Barry passed away was to bring back his baby and do it in a big way. Well, here is a sneak preview of what the amazingly talented Tony Vassallo and I are going to be doing with the new Elflord comic. The book is going to pick up the tale of Hawk and Windblade 20 years after the last Elflord comic and show what has happened after the Sidhe Queen has conquered their homeland. We’re going to give you some of the most insanely high-octane action and adventure ever seen in a fantasy comic. Check out the first two pages for a quick taste of what is to come!
