Book Description

25 Aug 2011 Prince Valiant (Fantagraphics) (Book 4)
As the fourth volume begins, Prince Valiant, haunted by Aleta, seeks Merlin's wise counsel. This brief episode segues into one of Hal Foster's patented epics, 'The Long Voyage to Thule', which ran for seven straight months and featured Valiant's return to his birthplace and reunion with his father. Of course, Foster's astonishingly detailed and evocative depictions of Val's homeland contribute greatly to this sprawling epic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prince Valiant 28 Nov 2011
By Jade Warrior - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The original art work of Hal Foster is quite extraordinary. I purchased the first four volumes of Fantagraphic's Books Inc. Prince Valiant saga. I was not disappointed. The art work was awesome! I am eagerly awaiting "Prince Valiant Volume V". I conducted a side-by-side comparison of Mr. Foster's art work and storylines with the work of the current artists and writers presenting Prince Valiant in our Sunday newspaper. Suffice it to say that it wasn't a contest. When looking at a frame of Mr. Foster's work, I instinctively knew I was looking at the work of a master artist. The scenes are depicted with such minute detail that it was very pleasing to the eye, much like a high megapixel camera photograph or an HD TV as opposed to a SD TV. I will obtain all of Fantafraphic's Prince Valiant books. These books should be used as exemplars of what a comic strip should look like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great rendition of Classic comic strip 14 Jan 2012
By William W. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The art contained is legendary. And story arcs are compelling. This strip has lasted 60 years for a reason, and given the time period being depicted there is no real sense of being dated. This volume portrays the adventures of our hero knight and prince in it's fourth year of production and my fourth volume. I await anxiously the remaing volumes. I just wish they would accelerate release of the remaining volumes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prince Valiant gets the respect it's due from this Fantagraphics prestige format 24 Oct 2011
By Jim Davis - Published on Amazon.com
If you have the previous three volumes in this series rest assured that the reproduction, artwork, and storytelling in the present volume are well up to the standards set in the previous three. If you don't have them pass on this volume and buy the first and work your way forward.

After so many years little can be added to what has already been said about this classic comic strip. The reproduction does it full justice although admittedly I am not old enough to have seen an original full Sunday page.

All that being said, there is something new in this book, at least to me. In his interesting foreword Brian M. Kane explains the reason behind the appearance of "The Mediæval Castle" footer strip. And at the rear of the book there is a full page reproduction of a Foster watercolor. More please!

Highly recommended. It is interesting that Volume 5 is scheduled to be released next month. That is two books in quick succession and it will be interesting to see if it appears as scheduled. Bring it on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kudos again to Fantagraphics 7 Oct 2011
By Screamin' Steve - Published on Amazon.com
Fantagraphics is doing a marvelous job of publishing the Prince Valiant Sunday comic strip from beginning to end with 2 volumes per year. Volume 4 continues the glorious story of Valiant. These books are beautifully done and affordable (especially when purchased from Amazon). I look forward to future volumes in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prince Valiant and The Medieval Castle a Pleasurable Read 11 Dec 2011
By Uncle Don - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It was a great pleasure to get another volume of the early Prince Valiant pages. When I was a young man I took the train from the suburbs to the Boston Public Library to view the bound copies of the Boston Post (just to look at the Hal Foster Tarzan and Prince Valiant pages); I would walk through history Sunday by Sunday, copying stunning images in an attempt to capture their beauty with my own pen and ink. At some point it was all transferred to microfilm (I think), but you just can't beat full color on paper. I am very happy that Syracuse University made these great pages available to Fantagraphics Books.

In the end, I gave up on my youthful ambition to become a cartoonist, but I never lost my love of the fabulous artwork. I miss the look and feel of the newsprint (not to mention the full newspaper size), but feel very fortunate to have another volume of Prince Valiant on my shelf, available whenever the mood strikes me to look at Hal Foster's great artwork. I also found the extra materials, especially the article about the Medieval Castle, to be very interesting and informative.
