Hal Foster, the creator of the popular Prince Valiant newspaper strip, is a cartoonist’s cartoonist; Fantagraphics’ “studio edition” showcases his original art.

Hal Foster’s Prince Valiant is an undisputed masterpiece of comics art. Painstakingly researched and illustrated, Foster spent more than 50 hours a week crafting every Sunday page. It is no wonder that legendary comics artists such as Jack Kirby, Alex Raymond, Frank Frazetta, Joe Kubert, Gil Kane, Wally Wood, Jim Steranko and dozens more admired, respected and studied his pages. Foster was and remains an artist’s artist, which is why he is in five artistic Halls of Fame―more than any other cartoonist or illustrator. Each one of his Sunday pages stands as a testament to the unparalleled beauty of visual narrative art. Fantagraphics’ recent reprints of the Prince Valiant strip, scanned from original color engraver’s proof sheets, have received international acclaim, and now we are printing the Holy Grail of comics art. Hal Foster’s Prince Valiant Studio Edition is a 160-page collection scanned from Foster’s original art and printed in full color, capturing every nuance of Foster’s masterly brush strokes. Each page is so rare that the sum total of the original art reprinted in this book would likely cost millions. From Foster’s very first Prince Valiant page to his very last, the public will be treated to a selection of some of the most iconic and beautiful comic art ever made. Full color illustrations throughout

About the Author:

Hal Foster (1892-1982) created Prince Valiant in 1937. Though remaining involved with the strip until his death in 1982, Foster handed the bulk of the scripting and art chores over to his longtime assistant, John Cullen Murphy, in 1971.

Review:

“Illustrious.”
