Wow, these ent-elves sure are... extremely conventionally unattractive.

They look incomplete and sick. Rotten. Tree zombies.

... or simply selfshapers with a weird sense of aesthetics.

Jee, did they scratch up Cutter or did they just find him that way? I'm glad to see unconventionally pretty elves. Maybe that female is some kind of healer or something.

This isn't coming out until March?! Whaaaaat!

Also, this is quite hilarious. Once again, Cutter has found ANOTHER group of elves ON HIS OWN as he's freaking out and running off and being a complete smoking emotional wreck.

The "boob-tree" has leaves. These will probably be explained as some kind of accessories, but looks like she's growing leaves. That's stupid, unless she's really Goodtree, then I called it.

He can't take a leak without finding new elves. The reason why there were so few elves answering the call is because Cutter isn't looking for them

I've been staring at that cover off and on for the past two hours, trying to figure out what those Ents remind me of.

Got it - the Walking Dead comics. They totally have zombie rot. (Also... a fair smattering of Wendy's "melted flesh" look from her Red Death era - I see she hasn't gotten any more subtle with that.)

Poor Sunstream, his Call is looking more and more useless with every issue. Maybe THIS is Timmain's master plan - Sunstream can't tempt more elves out of the woodwork after ten long years of waiting, so let's wind Cutter up like a toy car and let him run wild. Bingo bango, new elves in twenty pages or less!

Yeah, the psychic call of the Link Between All Elves and the promise of the Palace of the High Ones wasn't enough to interest the ents, but if Cutter's got an owie.... to the rescue! He must be saved!

...or maybe they just want to eat him. Tree-rot dude looks hungry.

Do they breastfeed? Do they wear clothes? Do babies have to shove some bark and fibre aside to get to the nipples? Hmm, if ent-sex gets to rough, can they set each other aflame? How might they react to Treestump (name) and his axe?

The only ugly thing about them is the art style used.

Wendy said this on Facebook: "EVERYBODY! Right now! Stop calling them "tree elves!" Call 'em "fungus amungus" if you want. Anyway, this image could be misleading. You don't know when or even IF we'll meet these new elves. But if we do, rest assured this is not a rehash of LOTR or any established fantasy you've ever read. Keep thinking outside of the box."

...until they get officially named in the books, I'm calling 'em zombie trees or zombie fungus.

Timmain-Tree had tits too.
Argh the poses reminds me so much of that 'Timmain shows up as a bunch of wolves rip into something'-picture.

So, we have a mushroom with boobs? That's not exactly better than a tree with boobs Suspect
But, wait, if they are fungi, why does the female one sport leaves?

If we should've really thought outside the box, I'll be surprised

It's interesting that, rather than sit back and enjoy fans theorizing about these "non tree elves calling elves" - she's asking people to stop calling them "tree elves." Rolling Eyes

And the image could be misleading? We don't know when or if we're going to meet these new elves? Really? Then why grace them on the cover? And the Lord of the Rings "rehash" comment gets to me (since Tolkien is like my god when it comes to creativity) - and while I love Lord of the Rings, and the Ents, the lore of "talking trees" has been around for a long time in folklore. (Googled some examples: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talking_tree )... So... If she's thinking she's come up with something brand new I'd like to see it.

Maybe because her remark annoys me; but so help me, if these "non tree elves" just happen to be "Elves" that were born when Timmain (or someone High One; but come on, the whole world centers around Timmain now) took form of a tree once, and the seeds that fell from her branches not only grew into trees, but into (non) "Elf-Tree" things...

It's the weird, lighter color, squiggly lines on her breasts... it's breasts... whatever's breasts.

I really hope those tree-elves are helping him, especially that the female is a healer.
In fact; maybe their - I assume - stronger connectedness with nature might help keep Cutter grounded to the WoTM, help him hold onto what Tam is, to him.

It looks lazy. 'Yeah gotta get this done super quick! Have to add details but...naaaaah' *Scribbles*

It sounds to me like she really doesn't like having Tolkien's name tossed around her work.

The whole 'we might not see them' thing makes me think it's just her trying to get people really interested in buying the comic.

I think it looks fine. Guys-- nothing in Elfquest is original, just like nothing in Tolkein has ever been original. It's just a new take on old themes- eleven, fairies, werewolves, dire wolves, mermaids, the creature from the black lagoon... now we have ents. If they are fungus or trees or whatnot-- it's the same basic concept. It makes sense they might be more fungussy, because a fungus is closer to an animal that a tree is. I have no idea how or why people would think they are fungus and not tree elves-- since we've only seen them so far as hanging out in trees... But okay. So they are fungus. It's still the same basic concept.

I'm sure they will have come in response to Sunstream. What other explanation would make sense?

Oh, Wendy, you really don't understand how the Internet works. Now we're all going to call them tree-elves just to spite you!!
