- Full Description
Original publisher copies. Val is finally knighted by King Arthur for his service in saving the kingdom. He battles barbarian Huns in the magnificent mountain sequence, where the castle Andelkrag holds out against thousands of invaders. He meets his first love (not Aleta), fights for his life against a witch woman, enters a city in disguise, is found out and tortured. But revenge is sweet for this young, magnificent and sometimes bloodthirsty warrior!
Still the only way to read these magnificent pages in the full, original size, as they first appeared. Three volumes were published by Norwood, who continues to publish Comics Revue. The first book is long sold out, but now these two full years are available for a wonderful low price. Each contains a full year of Hal Foster's immaculately researched and impeccably drawn Sunday comic strip, reproduced in full color on giant 17 inches x 22 inches 100 lb. acid-free paper.
These Sunday Pages were reproduced from black and white proofs and then re-colored to match the originals. This makes for perhaps the finest reproduction ever achieved on these, and that includes the well-reproduced current hardcover series from Fantagraphics Books. These two collections also include additional rare Foster art, several pages in each, also printed in full-color.
Here you will find the art that inspired Wally Wood, Frank Frazetta and many others looked at these exact pages and first found their artistic voice studying Foster and his unparalleled work. Foster commonly spent 70 hours a week creating these magnificent pages.
Note: This copy has slight creases in the spine, but is clean and still in the originl shrink wrap.
