"sexual content" ... mmm

When my brother was trying to get me to read Tolkien, I was trying to get him to read Elfquest as a kid. I absoltuley loved it! I read the original story arc and the one after it but nevert really got back to it these many, many years later. But the Pini's art style and storyline were/are fantastic.

As in the description and despite the look of the drawings there was indeed some rough violence and sexual situations though they didn't dominate it. I knew a woman who was reading them to her kids and Pini gave warning that the next issue was going to be explicit. It had a rave type orgy before a bloodyl battle for survival. She kind of had to gloss over those parts for her kids.

I'd love to see a movie or TV version of the show but I want it to be animated. I've seen the live-action short the producers did for Elfquest and it didn't do it for me. I'd want the charm of the Pini's artwork to come through either hand drawn or CG.

I lvoed ElfQuest as well.  I am with monkeyfoot!  I too want them to do a show of it actually.  It is a series and I think it cannot be condensed into movies.  I would also love for it to be computer animated in a very cartoony art style, similar to the Clone Wars show.  If they were acurate to the graphic novels it would be awesome!

Alright here is the next great show for AMC or Sci FI,  as I agree just way to much story for one flick, but I might go for a Trillogy say after the Hobbit when fantasy films hit another high.

It would do all right as 4 movies.  Break it up like the graphic novels with each one getting the movie treatment.
