You know what - The Complete Elfquest has almost the same size - identical lenght (11 inches then ) and with 21 centimeters just 0,5 centimeters less in width.
The real difference is the coloring.
Personally I prefer the Starblaze/Donning colors before the Complete Elfquest by Father Tree Press. TCEQ is more two-dimentional in my opinion when it comes to coloring. Starblaze is more detailed, often more "lifelike" ... gotten more love somehow.
I might be biased, though - the first and only EQ issues I had for long and fell in love with had the Starblaze coloring (the original Quest). I was somehow irritated ... even very slightly disappointed - when I got the the first issue of Siege at Blue Mountain - with the "new" coloring.
Well - I was much too happy to have EQ going on to give this feeling room.
When you think it helps I could post some "compairing couples".
