The greatest adventure epic since Beowulf continues in this perennial full-color series. Each volume in the series presents close to a year's worth of strips per volume in an oversized format showcasing the strip's spectacular color pages. In Vol. 48 (1978-1979), Valiant's twin daughters Karen and Valeta are no longer impossible to tell apart. Suddenly the wilder of the two, Karen, decides that she wants to be a warrior. She trims her golden locks and dons armor, eager to prove her mettleand when a massive fleet of pirates turns up on the horizon, she may have her chance! At this point in Prince Valiant's run, Hal Foster's assistant, John Cullen Murphy, who had been quietly assisting Foster for several years, was well into his first decade of drawing the strip over Foster's writing and roughs. Continuing Foster's tradition of meticulous artwork, Murphy was developing his own fan following. 48 pages full-color.
