Elflord (5th Series) - Unrecognized issues


Recommended Posts

I was going through the most recent Unrecognized Comics in my collection and noticed that issues 4-7 of Elflord (5th Series) are no longer recognized. I don't have the issues on hand to verify that they exist, but at least three separate sources online list them.  Both MyComicShop and Mile High list it (probably incorrectly) as Elflord Cuts Loose, and they all have 7 issues. Comicvine also lists all 7 issues for this volume: https://comicvine.gamespot.com/elflord/4050-58016/

I also noticed that the Publisher is listed as Night Wynd but the cover scans clearly show the Warp logo. 

Any clarification would be appreciated as Elflord is one of the titles I have on my "wish list" for completing one day. 

Thanks!

This is the information I found and sent to Mark on March 10.
It is a little long and can be confusing but the most of the Elflord titles need major work to them.

====================

Currently (as of Mar 10) in CB are:

(NOTE: for the 3 published by Night Wynd and the last one from WaRP, the mini-series 'name' is on the cover. Don't know if they are the official title or not)

Here are what appears to be the complete(?) list. I only called them 'Elflord' as I don't know what the actual titles will be:

CB Title                   (not sure)      Publisher        Date Range  Issue #s       Cover dates
(not in CB)                  'Elflord'       Night Wynd   (1980-1982) Issues 1-15   from Jun 1980 - ??? 1982

'Elflord (2nd Series)'   'Elflord'       Aircel            (1986-1989) Issues 1-31   from Oct 1986 - Oct 1989
'Elflord (3rd Series)'   'Elflord' (1)   Night Wynd (1992)            Issues 1-4    from ??? 1992 - ??? 1992
'Elflord (4th Series)'   'Elflord' (2)   Night Wynd (1993)           Issues 1-4    from ??? 1993 - ??? 1993
'Elflord (5th Series)'   'Elflord' (3)   Night Wynd (1993)           Issues 1        from ??? 1993
'Elflord (6th Series)'   'Elflord'         WaRP           (1997)           Issues 1-4    from Jan 1997 - Apr 1997
''Elflord (7th Series)'  'Elflord' (4)   WaRP            (1997-1998) Issues 1-7    from Sep 1997 - Mar 1998

(1) MyComicShop lists the Title as 'Elflord Return of the King'.
(2) MyComicShop lists the Title as 'Elflord Summer's Magic'.
(3) MyComicShop lists the Title as 'Elflord Dragon's Eye'.
(4) MyComicShop lists the Title as 'Elflord Cuts Loose'.

===============

PS Currently CB has 'Elflord (5th Series)' with 3 issues, I think that #2 and #3 shouldn't be there as the 'Dragon's Eye' was just one issue.

To make a shorter list, these are what I believe are the correct Titles.
Except for the, probably, incorrect 2 extra issues in the 5th Series, I think this is all of them.

CB Title                  Publisher   Date Range  Issue #s       Cover dates
Elf Lord (Night Wynd)    'Night Wynd (1980-1982)   Issues 1-15   from Jun 1980 - ??? 1982
'Elflord'                 Aircel     (1986)        Issues 1-6    from Feb 1986 - Jul 1986
'Elflord (2nd Series)'   'Aircel     (1986-1989)   Issues 1-31   from Oct 1986 - Oct 1989
