Elf-Thing #1 (1987)
Parody as you like it!
Elf-Thing serves a generous helping of parody. The book takes place in a world populated by comic characters with the word Thing in their names; Swamp Thing, Man-Thing, Thing, etc. Oh, and there are elves as well.
Dr Bruce Thing gets turned into an elf. In this world, apparently elves are repulsive.
Gator-Aid benefit, that’s rich
Right off the bat, we get the origin story…
A lab full of Things
the shadowed figure in the center looks like a Bernie Wrightson era Swamp Thing
Dr Thing leaves the lab of Things and returns to his home lab in the swamp
while performing his monologue…
Thing goons are closing in fast, to steal his bio restorative formula
A fight is inevidible and Dr Thing does his best to thwart the evil-doers.
much like Swamp Thing, the Dr plunges into the swamp
transforming into Swam… an elf.
seeking help, he turns to his trusted mentor Baron Dr Maximillian Von Thing
and then his girlfriend’s house, of course
She is blind and doesn’t mind his new form but the doctor flees, disgraced by his appearance.
The doctor takes a boat to seek answers but only finds an elf orgy!
the final page advertises a continuation but I am not aware of a second book.
