Prince Valiant by Harold R Foster( Book )
172 editions published between 1937 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 650 libraries worldwide
"Universally acclaimed as the most stunningly gorgeous adventure comic strip of all time, Prince Valiant ran for 35 years under the virtuoso 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 the narrative instincts of a born storyteller, propelling his daring young hero from one crisis to another with barely a panel to catch one's breath. Prince Valiant has previously been widely available only in re-colored, somewhat degraded editions (now out of print and fetching collectors' prices). Thanks to advances in production technology and newly available original proof sheets, this new series from the industry leader in quality strip classics is the first to feature superb restored artwork that captures every delicate line and chromatic nuance of Foster's original masterpiece. Comic strip aficionados will be ecstatic, and younger readers who enjoy a classic adventure yarn will be bowled over"--Publisher's website

Prince Valiant by Harold R Foster( Book )
7 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 73 libraries worldwide
Haunted by Aleta, Prince Valiant seeks Merlin's wise counsel--a brief episode that segues into one of Hal Foster's patented epics, the seven-month "The Long Voyage to Thule," which spotlights Val's return to his birthplace and reunion with his father. Then, after a series of shorter adventures (including "The Seductress," "The Call of the Sea," and "The Jealous Cripple") Val finally decides he can stand it no longer and sets off on a quest for his queen-to-be, launching "The Winning of Aleta," a storyline that will run an unprecedented year and a half and continue into the following volume. And as always, the pages will be repoduced from Foster's exquisite personal set of printer's proofs
Prince Valiant by Harold R Foster( Book )
6 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 59 libraries worldwide
Fully half of this volume concerns itself with the remaining chapters of the 20-month epic "The Winning of Aleta," in which Val continues to pursue his bride-to-be. We don't think we're spoiling any surprises by mentioning that this sequence is followed up by one called "Matrimony," as Val's new queen adjusts to a life of luxury in Camelot--until the "War in the Forest" against the encroaching Saxons calls for her to become personally involved to a far greater degree that her husband would like. No wonder Aleta gets the cover treatment in this edition, which also features the conculsion to the "Mediæval Castle" strip!
