Vol. 2, 1939-1940Book - 2010
Prince Valiant ran for 35 years under the pen of its creator, Hal Foster. (Such was its popularity that today, decades after Foster's death, it continues to run under different hands.) The giant Sunday-funnies pages (Valiant ran only on Sundays) gave Foster a huge canvas upon which he was able to limn epic swordfights, stunning scenes of pomp and pageantry, and some of the most beautiful human beings-- male and female-- ever to appear in comics. And he matched his nonpareil visual sense with narrative, propelling his daring young hero from one crisis to another with barely a panel to catch one's breath.--From publisher's web site.
