Product description

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.

This was one of my favourite comics when I was young.
This is a lovely edition, of great quality and full of memories for me. I bought this for one of my sons who's into medieval stuff and knights. He also likes it very much, and I have already bought him the 2nd volume for next Xmas.
Something different from the standard marvel comics (which I like too, by the way), and other cheap stuff bough at the newsagents.
Highly recommended. The only problem for children would be to read it at night due that it is a pretty "big" comic, of a bigger size than any average comic.

Hal Foster is a new discovery for me and his drawings are magnificent. The cover shows a sample of what is inside although not nearly as good quality as the internal pages. These people have obviously taken a lot of care to produce this volume with the best quality reproduction from original printer's proofs. The book is very big and taller than most of my shelves, but I highly recommend it for the very beautiful artwork. The story is placed convincingly in the time of King Arthur and Foster has worked hard to achieve authenticity in what he has drawn, such that fact and fiction become blended. Prince Valiant is the hero of the piece and the stories basically follow his adventures (and like so many people in stories, he does seem to have rather a lot of them!). There are no mythical dragons, but plenty of drama, fights and the occasional beautiful girl. The stories are very well put together and have pace through the adventures to keep you reading whilst being assaulted by a visual feast. How I wish there were more things of this quality, but today's computer-generated pulp is well and truly put to shame here. I have all three volumes now and am eagerly awaiting the fourth. The price may look a little high, but you definitely get quality here: the paper, the printing, the presentation, the colours, the drawing and the story. Don't take my word for it, get your own copy!

Fabulous quality reproductions with excellent colour, lovely paper, well bound and presented. This is a very superior volume and the story telling within is beautiful, far flung (Val visits the Americas in this volume), impish (his princess), and sadly lacking in today's pulp market where you will not find anything of this depth and quality with such attention to details. All in all Hal Foster's work is beautiful and whilst this may be an expensive volume, you won't be disappointed.

One of the best volumes in the best published version of Hal Foster's Prince Valliant. Durable, looks great, nice extra material. The hardcover format is great (a key deciding factor for me when deciding to buy comics). Be aware however that the format is a bit high, so some bookshelves may have to be re-arranged for the books to fit in :-) Definitely going to collect more volumes in this great series. Now that all the initial books 1-5 are released you can get a reasonable complete introduction to Prince Valliant, so now it the right time to start collecting.

The work of restoration on these strips makes this a book to salivate over - just so long as you don't drool on the sumptuous artwork!
