Wendy was noticed by Richard Pini after she submitted a letter that was published in the letters coloumn of the Silver Surfer comic book during the 1970's. They began a correspondance shortly afterwards. Wendy also contributed covers and illustrations to Galaxy Science Fiction and Galileo magazines around that time. In 1978, Wendy and Richard Pini, now married, launched ElfQuest. It has since become the longest-running series of independently published comic books and graphic novels.
Together with her husband, Wendy is one-half of the team that makes up WaRP Graphics. She is the primary writer and illustrator behind ElfQuest while Richard is the co-writer and editor. Wendy has also created graphic novels based on the TV series Beauty and the Beast and has drawn several stories for both Marvel and DC Comics.
She has also published Masque of the Red Death, a depicted adaptation from the works of Edgar Alan Poe.
Wendy and Richard Pini live in Poughkeepsie, which is the Catskill Mountains outside of Manhattan.
Richard and Wendy Pini, the masterminds of ElfQuest have maintained an independently published organisation known as WaRP graphics. They decided, in the internet age, to offer all of these scanned-comic books to the public free. All of the WaRP publishing archives are available online by visiting http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics3.html , and they feature a fan club and online forums for the discussion of ElfQuest.
