I missed out on Elk's Run #1-3 in the original floppy editions published by Hoarse and Buggy in 2004. But, judging by Joshua Fialkov's letter to his readers (printed on the final page of this collection), Elk's Run flew under the radar of most comic book readers, so I'm not alone. But, again like most of those who have finally become aware of the existence of Elk's Run, I'm pleased to have finally discovered it, and dismayed that such a quality piece of work has eluded the attention of so many readers thus far. So far, Elk's Run has delivered the goods - characters to care about, a great story that keeps the pages turning, artwork that draws the reader into that story, and colouring that sets the mood beautifully.
