Prince Valiant (14) –FINAL
Hal Foster’s Prince Valiant may well be the most influential comics series ever done. The past two weeks I have attempted to showcase not only the astonishing art, but to also give some sense of the great storytelling…greatly increasing the amount of excerpts in each daily.
I am also attaching here random samples of the way the strip originally appeared each Sunday as a FULL PAGE of the newspaper, allowing Hal Foster free artistic reign and incredible detail with the spacious layouts.

Listen to this quote from one of our greatest fantasy writers:
“When I was in high school my love for Hal Foster increased because he then invented Prince Valiant and I collected it every Sunday for the next twenty years.”

Besides archiving this fortnight of Prince Valiant in the regular Daily Comics folder, I have created a special Prince Valiant folder in the Comics Section for easier access should you want to revisit it.
