Back in stock. New printing. Sunday Pages, 1945-46. Our Highest Recommendation. By Hal Foster. Fully half of this volume is devoted to the conclusion of "The Winning of Aleta," the two-year epic in which Valiant first holds the beautiful queen of the Misty Isles, Aleta, responsible for the deaths of his sailing comrades. He kidnaps her and in nearly a deranged state, drags her through the capitals of his world--while slowly falling in love with her. She knows Val is good and noble, and quietly humors him until he comes to his senses. It's one of the best PV stories EVER. Then in "War in the Forest," Val is sent out to spy on encroaching Saxons--unknowingly aided by a disguised Aleta.
