The team that comprises the custodians of the 35 year old comic fantasy adventure did not disappoint fans with their talks of what’s next for the legendary brand.
Here’s a taste of what happened and selected picts and Twitter tweets.

To celebrate the 35th Anniversary of legendary comic series “ElfQuest”, Thorpe joined
creator Wendy Pini and producing partner Paula Rhodes for a lively panel discussion of
all things “ElfQuest”: past, present and an exciting look ahead at what the future holds
for this beloved series. (And read Andrew Rogers’ take on the 35th Anniversary of Elf Quest here.)
Thorpe and Rhodes recently hit the front page of Variety when they acquired the film/TV rights to the “ElfQuest” franchise. They first gained attention for their award-winning cyber-phenom “ElfQuest: A Fan Imagining”, a short live-action production which has gained 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.
In addition, as a founding member of The League of Extraordinary Ladies (LxL), Thorpe joined her geek girl friends for an energetic panel sharing tips and creative insights into the geek world. Originally formed by a small, but fierce group of geek girls, LxL has become a world-wide community fostering connections with like-minded ladies and creating a safe space online for discussions, sharing and more.
The League is dedicated to keeping the Con spirit alive all year round, wherever you are. Thorpe comments, “It’s a privilege to share, learn from and support these brilliant, amazing women as they create and bring new ideas to the community.”
