Rank #1: Episode 40: Shenshen
While it was tempting to start with Cutter, Leetah or Skywise--the main characters of the series--I decided to kick this off with a character who hasn't had as much time in the spotlight. Even secondary players in ElfQuest have their own personalities, histories, roles to play, and devoted fandoms. Who personifies this better than Shenshen, Leetah's "little sister"?
I chatted with Wendy Pini herself on the origins of Shenshen's character, her visual design and how she evolved over the course of forty years. I hope you enjoy it.

The Pinis share their experience meeting fans on their publicity tour, being nominated for an Eisner Award and their insights into Wendy's "animated" drawing technique, Moonshade's death, the Palace's hum, the mythic quality of Cutter's tale, the power of "Once Upon a Time," hints and foreshadowing, clues about what's next . . . and flying meatloaf.
