Universally acclaimed as the most stunningly gorgeous adventure comic strip of all time, Prince Valiantran for 35 years under the virtuoso pen of its creator, Hal Foster.(Such was its popularity that today, decades after Foster’s death, itcontinues to run under different hands.)

The giant Sunday-funnies pages (Valiant ran only onSundays) gave Foster a huge canvas upon which he was able to limn epicswordfights, stunning scenes of pomp and pageantry, and some of themost beautiful human beings—male and female—ever to appear incomics. And he matched his nonpareil visual sense with the narrativeinstincts of a born storyteller, propelling his daring young hero fromone crisis to another with barely a panel to catch one’s breath.

Prince Valiant has previously been widely available only inre-colored, somewhat degraded editions (now out of print and fetchingcollectors’ prices). Thanks to advances in production technology andnewly available original proof sheets, this new series from theindustry leader in quality strip classics is the first to featuresuperb restored artwork that captures every delicate line and chromaticnuance of Foster’s original masterpiece. Comic strip aficionados willbe ecstatic, and younger readers who enjoy a classic adventure yarnwill be bowled over.

Volume One is rounded out with a rare, in-depth classic Fosterinterview previously available only in a long out-of-print issue of The Comics Journal,as well as an informative Afterword detailing the production andrestoration of this edition.

Nominated for a 2010 Will Eisner Comic Industry Award (Best Archival Collection/Project: Strips).
