Starting with Elfquest #2, the Pinis self published their series under WaRP (Wendy and Richard Pini) Graphics. Each issue was magazine-sized and black and white, with a glossy full-color cover as well as a character print on the back cover. Later Elfquest #1 (originally printed in Fantasy Quarterly) was reprinted with a new front cover and full color character portrait on the back cover. This series was printed from 1978 to 1984, it covers the original quest from Fire and Flight through Quest's End. There was also an additional issue, #21 that includes collected reader letters and behind the scenes material that was never reprinted.
