If you read my column consistently, you know we take our children everywhere and conventions are no exception. We enjoy sharing these experiences with our children and believe they are instrumental to their development in many ways, providing both fun and education and plan to continue to share these experiences with them for the duration of their childhood.
Some parents want to take their entire families to a convention, but have obligations like attending panels, networking, hosting events, interviewing attendees, or sitting through celebrity events on the exhibit floor and taking children along for these types of events can be arduous at best and down right miserable, leading to impossible at worst. Hours upon hours of standing in lines and fighting vicious crowds to get the shot you need, the interview you need, the exclusive action figure you need… it can be brutal.

Elflord began in the late 70’s as a series of photocopied ashcan comics featuring the adventures of Hawk and Windlbade, a pair of elven warriors. Years later, Elflord became the foundation of one of the most influential independent comic book publishers of the 1980s, Aircel Comics.
With nearly one hundred issues in a variety of related series, Elflord was one of the longest continually running indy fantasy comics ever published.
And now we are picking up where it left off. This Kickstarter will be funding the first full color issue of six in a new Elflord series. If you love epic fantasy with a lot of action, this series will be for you.
