Review

Starred Review: Medieval swordplay and adventure have never been as glorious as in Foster s Sunday-only comic strip. This edition has been reproduced from pristine printer s proofs to give the gorgeous artwork its crispest version ever.... Prince Valiant is one of the best-drawn comics ever, and this new edition does ample justice to its achievement.

Starred Review. Medieval swordplay and adventure have never been as glorious as in Foster s Sunday-only comic strip. This edition has been reproduced from pristine printer s proofs to give the gorgeous artwork its crispest version ever.... Prince Valiant is one of the best-drawn comics ever, and this new edition does ample justice to its achievement. "

The star of what is arguably the twentieth century's best-drawn newspaper comic strip, Hal Foster's Prince Valiant is all hero, through and through, for his age and ours. The first four volumes of Fantagraphics' collected Prince Valiant reveal young Foster's creation as both the sum total of the heroic ideals that preceded his debut in 1937 as well as a source of serious inspiration for all the heroes that have followed him, in all media formats, in the decades since. --Alan Scherstuhl"

One of the greatest comic strips of all time and a peak in visual splendor and breath-taking adventure, the story of Prince Valiant's 30+ year odyssey is getting a marvelous presentation in Fantagraphics' series of books... The strip is violent, sexy, serious, droll and above all eye-catching.... It's a worthy presentation for one of the most important and entertaining works in comic strip history. --Michael Giltz"

Valiant remains a hugely enjoyable action strip, as Valiant battles a variety of ne er do wells on a quest to find his true love, Aleta. --Chris Mautner"

Starred Review

[T]he mastery Foster brings to bear on his every panel may have been equaled both before and since his prime, but it s never been surpassed.--Matt Seneca"

Rendered in a simply stunning panorama of glowing visual passion and precision, Prince Valiant is a non-stop rollercoaster of stirring action, exotic adventure and grand romance; blending human-scaled fantasy with dry wit and broad humour with shatteringly dark violence.--Win Wiacek

...[T]he mastery Foster brings to bear on his every panel may have been equaled both before and since his prime, but it's never been surpassed.--Matt Seneca

About the Author

Hal Foster (1892-1982) created Prince Valiant in 1937. Though remaining involved with the strip until his death in 1982, Foster handed the bulk of the scripting and art chores over to his longtime assistant, John Cullen Murphy, in 1971.

Brian M. Kane is the author of Hal Foster: Prince of Illustrators and James Bama: American Realist. He teaches in the Illustration Department at the Columbus College of Art & Design, Columbus, Ohio. He has a Masters Degree in History of Art from The Ohio State University where he is currently working on his Ph.D. in Art Education with an emphasis in Visual Culture.
