    Richard Pini was a professional astronomer early in his career. In the early 1970's he read a letter written by Wendy that was published in the letters column of the Silver Surfer comic book. The two began a correspondance and were eventually married. Together with his wife Wendy Pini, he launched ElfQuest in 1978. ElfQuest has since become the longest running independant series of comic books and graphic novels.
