"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 web site.… (més)

I never read this in the papers when growing up (and certainly am not old enough to have read it from the beginning!) so appreciate these beautiful reprints. The books are large (not heavy, not thick), containing two year's worth of full colour Sunday one pagers. What a treat to have the dimensions large enough to easily apprehend everything.

Other than Val's unfortunate haircut (which he keeps throughout the series), there's a lot of good going on. The panels are beautiful illustrations, rather than what some might think of as cartoons. The setting (which I'd never realised) is England under King Arthur, so there is magic and chivalry and much derring-do. Really a fun read, with gorgeous art.

(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s). I feel a lot of readers automatically render any book they enjoy 5, but I grade on a curve! ( )

The first of the Prince Valiant books, comprised of the earliest strips beginning with our protagonist as a child in exile. Good fun, wonderful artwork, believable storylines, enjoyable for all. ( )

The most influential adventure strip ever produced, Foster's gorgeous Prince Valiant inspired generations of artists. While the Sunday-only strip has been reprinted several times, this edition contains for the first time images shot from Foster's own color engraver's proofs. Published at the strip's original dimensions and complete with an introduction by Hal Foster biographer [a:Brian M. Kane|28017|Brian M. Kane|http://www.goodreads.com/images/nophoto/nophoto-U-50x66.jpg] and the insightful 1969 Hal Foster interview with Fred Schreiber, the hardcover Prince Valiant Vol. I: 1937-1938 finally presents these lush tales in a format worthy of the material.

As a kid, Prince Valiant looked so boring on the Sunday comics pages, so I always skipped over it. Reading this opening compilation as an adult however, I see how skillful Hal Foster was at adventure storytelling and maintaining the interest of a storyline on a weekly basis. I guess you really have to be into King Arthur and medieval times to get into Prince Valiant! My only quibble is that the strapping, resourceful Prince Val looks rather, uh, fey... ( )

Through work beating deadlines, [Hal Foster] gave himself enough time to create Prince Valiant, and the rest is history – history brought back to glorious, indulgent life by Fantagraphics Books in the first of their new series reprinting the entire Hal Foster run of Prince Valiant, starting with those earliest panels in 1937 that, even judged against the stunning work quickly to follow, already shine with visual gusto and ambition.
