- If you've read all the stories and just want a refresher, the Mini-Synopsis is a good way to go.
- If you are reading the synopsis instead of a particular comic series, it's best to read the detailed individual section for that series.
- If you have never read Elfquest and want to, I do NOT recommend reading the synopsis! All of the Elfquest comics are available to read online for free at Elfquest.com. But for the best reading experience, read them in print! My favorite printing is the color Archives collection, but they are quite expensive. My second favorite is the color Starblaze editions printed in the 80s.
The comic books which tell each particular part of the story are referenced in parentheses. Some stories have been reprinted in various volumes; only the original comic in which the story appears is referenced. (See the chronology for the detailed names of each referenced publication.)
