Rate this:
Hal Foster's masterpiece of adventure enters its second decade as Valiantand Aleta journey to "The New World" a 16-month epic that allows Foster to drawsome of his spectacular native Canadian backgrounds, and during which Aletagives birth to Arn and acquires her Indian nurse, Tillicum. Most of the rest ofthe book is taken up with the action-packed five-month sequence "The Mad King"during which Val, back at Camelot, confronts the evil, fat little King Tourienof Cornwall.
This volume will be rounded off with an essay by Foster scholarBrian M. Kane (The Prince Valiant Companion) discussing Foster's depiction of"Indians" as it relates to other interpretations of the times, accompanied byvarious graphic goodies such as a previously unpublished camping cartoon byFoster from circa 1915, some of Foster's Mountie paintings, Foster's own map ofVal's voyage to/from the New World, and more rare photos and art. As always,this volume is shot directly from Foster's personal collection of syndicateproofs, their glorious colors restored to create an unprecedentedly sumptuousreading experience.
