From Publishers Weekly:

Originally appearing in 1978, Elfquest broke new ground as a comics fantasy that mixed manga-influenced art with fantasy elements and an addictive, soap opera story line about brave, passionate elves trying to survive in a world beset with dangers. This volume collects stories from 1992 to 1998, featuring the elves against one of their toughest opponents ever: humankind. When humans make their new home near the elven holt, they mistake the new creatures for demons and believe their god wants them to annihilate the elves. This puts the humans in constant conflict with the elves, whose jovial teasing and trickery infuriate the humans. Luckily, the nimble elves have their wolf friends to help them escape and avoid the humans. But when the humans start poisoning the wolves and killing an increasing number of both the elf and wolf packs, things begin to look bleak. It appears as if this generation of Wolfriders may be the last. This edition's stories are drawn by a variety of artists, and creator Wendy Pini's are the most memorable, with their nuanced shadings and intricate detail. The writing, however, is consistently strong throughout. The writers weave an engrossing fantasy tale that should leave readers itching to see more.

From School Library Journal:

Adult/High School-Originally published in several installments of the series, this collection binds the episodes into a captivating, continuous story. The Wolfrider tribe has to overcome fear and misunderstanding as it comes into contact with a host of characters that includes trolls, humans, and the animals of the forests. The elves face moments of tragedy and victory. The black-and-white ink drawings are very detailed and expressive. The writers and artists have created an appealing setting and characters that will keep readers interested. Overall, this is a well-written book that comes from a very recognizable series.
